When will Hung Build Killer Pluggin be supported in Bamboo 5.4.x?

As the title says, when will the HungBuildKiller plugin be supported for Bamboo 5.4.x

I recently upgraded Bamboo but can no longer use this plugin which is pretty essential considering builds can hang for hours un-noticed and hold up agents.

Hi Kalen, Hung Build Killer author here. Sorry to hear about your problems but I am not working in Atlassian anymore and also not using Bamboo myself so I don't have much incentive to update the plugin.

I created the plugin mainly for internal use and once it proved itself useful we released it to customers. From what I see in Atlassian's maven repo, it seems that the plugin is still in use and I did find out some recent releases.

This one was compiled against Bamboo 5.4-m2.1


Please do test it against a Bamboo test instance first, since I have no idea whether it works or if it is production ready (my guess is yes :) )

Also I suggest you to vote this issue: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/BAM-931so the Bamboo guys either incorporate the plugin into the product or come up with some replacement.

Thanks Adrian for linking me to the maven repo, I was unaware of that. I've tested HBK 3.0.1 on my Bambo 5.4.2 sandbox and its working perfectly.

You might want to recompile the add on yourself (https://bitbucket.org/timothychin/bamboo-hung-build-killer).

I tried recompiling against the latest SDK which went fine but still won't load:

This add-on couldn't be loaded. It has one or more errors that prevent it from being enabled.

Any other suggestions?
