As we get closer to Blue Ocean 1.0, which is planned for the end of March, I figured it would be great to highlight some of the good stuff that has been going on. It’s been a busy-as-usual week as everyone comes back from vacation. A couple of new betas went out this week. Of note:
inputto Pipelines is now supported, a much asked for feature (see below)
A new French translation
And a grab bag of other great bug fixes.
Also a bunch of work has been done to support parametrized pipelines, as well as creation of new multibranch pipelines (both are much asked for).
There is also now an "official" Docker image being published to Docker Hub. The Pipeline building the container is run weekly and will be picking up newly tagged releases of Blue Ocean.
Running the latest can be as simple as:
docker run -p 8888:8080 jenkinsci/blueocean:latest
This is built on the incredibly popular
official "jenkins" image
(10M pulls can’t all be wrong!). The container also has tags available (e.g.
jenkinsci/blueocean:1.0.0-b16) for grabbing a specific released version.
Up next for Blue Ocean development as we march towards 1.0:
Support for parametrized jobs. For which a bunch of api work has already been done.
Creation of the new Pipeline GUI
Preview release of the Visual Editor for Declarative Pipeline.
The new header design will be applied
