Bamboo 7.1 is here and is packed with value!

I'm happy to announce that Bamboo 7.1 has been released and it’s overflowing with awesome new features.

Top-voted issues

First and foremost, a bunch of JAC top voted issues has been delivered - you have been asking for these features for a long time and we listened! We’ve added:

  • conditional build step - now users can add a build step based on the presence or value of a variable. Previously available as a plugin and our highest voted issue on JAC!

  • directory cleanup - agents remove workspaces for plans that no longer exist. It was the third top voted issue on JAC.

  • yaml exporter / importer - it’s now possible to export and view plan as yaml, before it was possible only in Java specs.

  • agent capabilities updates - updating on the agent will synchronize capabilities with server.

  • webhook notification type - it’s now possible to configure a notification to be sent as an http request.

Specs for branches and logs improvements

What’s more, another batch of Specs for branches and Logs improvements has been delivered. We have been listening to feedback on Specs for branches released in 7.0 as well as trying to solve one of the biggest pain points of our customers (logs being user unfriendly and affecting performance):

  • new divergent branch synchronization marker - freshly created divergent branch is now marked as waiting on RSS execution in UI

  • branch overrides in YAML specs - it’s now possible to predefine different configuration for specific branches in Yaml Specs, bringing feature parity with Java Specs

  • specs configuration for different Bamboo instances - it’s now possible to define different Specs configuration for different Bamboo Instances

  • live logs transmission - it’s now possible to turn live log transmission off. It mitigates the problem of excessive logging that is known to cause serious performance problems, including build result processing timing out.

Other changes include:

  • Deprecation of Mercurial

  • PostgreSQL 9.5, MSSql2012, MSSql2014, CVS, JGit, Git 1.x (oldest supported version: 2.8) are no longer supported

We would love to get your feedback on these new improvements and learn how your organization plans to take advantage of them. Please share your stories, questions, and feedback with the Bamboo team below!

For more information about Bamboo 7.1 please check out the release notes.


I don't understand why you stop support for databases which are far from his end of life yet

Example: MS SQL 2014 end of life is in year 2024 

We just upgraded to 7.1 and we've finally been able to switch to yaml specs because of the new features that were implemented. Thanks for the hard work!

@Sasho Bozhinov we've stopped support for MS SQL 2014 as its mainstream support by Microsoft is already over (the extended end date in 2024 is for paid support only, the mainstream support ended in 2019 - source) and we want to focus on supported, up to date databases that are widely used by Bamboo customers.

Thank you very much for the feedback @Eric Parton - it means a lot to us! You may expect further improvements to yaml specs in Bamboo 7.2, which will arrive soon :)
