Ottawa, Canada - January 23, 2013 - The Eclipse Foundation today announced the release of Hudson 3.0. Used around the world with more than 30,000 installations, Hudson is a continuous integration (CI) server used to significantly improve the software development process. Hudson increases productivity by coordinating and monitoring executions of repeated jobs, making it easier for developers to integrate changes to the project and for users to obtain a fresh build. Incorporating feedback from its community, Hudson 3.0 introduces important new functionality and simpler installation and administration for developers.
CI with automated test execution has seen broad adoption in recent years, changing the way companies look at Build Management, Release Management, Deployment Automation and Test Orchestration. A CI solution provides executives, business managers, software developers and architects a better sense of the development process and code quality of projects through the development lifecycle.
Hudson 3.0 highlights:
"The wide popularity of Hudson and the feedback from its vibrant community were the key drivers of this release," said Mike Milinkovich, executive director of the Eclipse Foundation. "All contributors to the project have also worked to ensure Hudson evolves into a scalable, reliable and high-performance continuous integration server for current and future users."
"With a strong and engaged ecosystem, Hudson continues to thrive, and Oracle's goal in moving the project to the Eclipse Foundation has expanded this even further," said Chris Tonas, vice president, Application Development Tools, Oracle. "Hudson 3.0 adds key capabilities that make continuous integration easier than ever to implement and manage while enhancing the overall environment for developers."
"Open source tools now dominate the CI landscape, and thanks to their extensibility, are becoming the key infrastructure component for orchestrating software delivery," said Mik Kersten, CEO of Tasktop a creator of the Eclipse Mylyn project. "Given the growing dependency that many organizations have on their investment in Hudson-based CI, today's 3.0 release is a great sign of the benefits of combining commercial investment with Eclipse's open source governance to create an enterprise-grade open source CI tool."About the Eclipse Foundation
