Way back in March, I asked you all: Want some Hudson stickers?
Turns out, a lot of you do! Thanks to a huge amuont of help by my future wife , the first shipment of Hudson stickers went into the mail last week. This first shipment was only to United States addresses! If you live outside of the U.S., or if you requested more than 50-ish stickers, I've not yet been able to send you stickers. I expect to start sending out international shipments later this week and early next week.
Intrepid Hudson user Christian Pelster posted a little project of his this week to the "users" mailing list called: hudsontrafficlights.
Christian describes the project as:
This Java based daemon aggregates the status of one or more jobs from a Hudson continous integration server into a single status (red, yellow, green) and invokes a shell script on status change.
You can use hudsontrafficlights to control a USB traffic light (such as this USB Traffic Light from Cleware, GmbH) to give you and your colleagues nearly instant feedback on jobs in Hudson, without ever needing to leave your text editor!
The release of 1.355 came out earlier this week but I hadn't had the chance to write anything up about it. Of course, the work never stops on Hudson so we almost have 1.356 ready to roll out the door, but then Kohsuke tweeted this:
Because of the data center migration going on, I won't be able to release #hudsonci today.
I won't go into details on some of the infrastructure changes we have lined up just yet, so here's the breakdown of 1.355
Hear ye, hear ye! Behold, the first release of Hudson ever made by a not-employed-by-Sun Kohsuke (as we covered last week). This iteration of Hudson contains only bug fixes, check the listing below for the specifics on which bugs have been fixed (1.355 is looking like it will contain a number of fixes as well). The release of 1.354 comes slightly later than usual given some of the logistics that needed to, or still need to be resolved.
One of the infrastructure issues that's half-way resolved is the question of Debian/Ubuntu packages. Kohuske has packages uploaded in an experimental apt repository on hudson-labs.org which you can try out. That said, it's not entirely clear whether this is going to be the preferred means of distributing native Debian/Ubuntu packages in the future (your mileage may vary).
