Bamboo can be used to build just about anything. It's not limited to Java projects.

In addition to out-of-the-box support for Ant, Maven, make, NAnt and Visual Studio, Bamboo can build anything that can be built with a custom command or shell script. This should cover just about everything.

There are also a number of third-party plug-ins that provide integration between Bamboo and non-Java languages, and a plug-in API that lets you develop your own.

Bamboo has supported PHP for a long while. 3.1 supports .Net, NAnt, MSBuild etc out of the box. Shell scripts are of course always an option.

We are using Bamboo with CMake almost transparently. The problem we had was with CTest as its output is not understood by Bamboo. I have written an XSL-TR to transform it to JUnit format. Let me know if you need it.

Barthelemy, that sounds awesome. Are you planning to convert this into a Bamboo Task?

Barthelemy, would love to get that XSL-TR transform for Ctest -> JUnit format.
