V2 is here! Dedicated hosts, custom docker workflows, and a lot more.


Shippable V2 is here! We are super excited and proud about this release and we hope you’ll love it as well. We could not have done it without your support… and feature requests and bugs :). So a BIG THANK YOU to everyone who’s ever signed up and run a build.

In my previous post, I focused on what’s different about features that existed in V1. In this post, I will introduce all the cool new stuff we’ve been working on and why we chose to include this in V2. A lot of our brand new features have been driven by customer requests, so if you see something you’d like to see in the coming weeks, please feel free to drop us a note.

I’ll also write a blog series starting tomorrow and cover one or more new features every day. Please follow us on twitter to stay up to date with new blog content and overall industry news.

Shippable V2 - What works differently from V1?

Thanks to all our customers who were patient with us as we ironed out the migration from our V1 platform to V2 platform. We hit some unexpected road bumps due to key management, expired tokens, etc but most of the resulting chaos has settled down now and we’re (mostly) back to business as usual. 

I am sure you will love all the new stuff that V2 brings to the table, but I will write another blog post for that very shortly. In this one, I want to focus on explaining some changes between V1 and V2 and why we made them.

Press Release : Shippable 'ships' a new platform to continuously deliver Docker-ized applications

SEATTLE – September 9, 2014 – Shippable, a Seattle-based startup focused on increasing developer efficiency, today announced its version 2.0 release – a new enterprise-grade delivery platform that helps software teams innovate faster by docker-izing their workflows and automating application lifecycles from code to production. The new platform is the first for containerized workflows and is engineered to leverage Docker containers to the fullest, increasing agility in the software development lifecycle (SDLC). Its rich feature set includes on-demand, containerized dev/test environments that are exact replicas of the production environment, a continuous delivery pipeline for application containers, and versioning of application containers with a one-click upgrade or rollback to any version.

“Container-based development is becoming essential for DevOps teams because it enables application development to move more quickly and efficiently,” said Al Hilwa, program director, application development software, IDC. “Enterprises adopting agile practices and seeking options for continuous development and delivery will find that workflow containerization solutions like Shippable will ultimately lead to better software quality.”

Buying your competitor's name on Google Adwords is the sincerest form of flattery. Thank you, Codeship!

Our team attended Dockercon at Westin SF earlier this week.... it was a super fun, informative conference and we had a great time. More on that in a blog post coming up soon.

After standing at our sponsor table for 2 days, we were super tired and decided to grab a drink at the bar downstairs. I was playing around with my phone... reading random articles... when I decided to google our company name. In that one moment, my tiredness was replaced by cheer as I saw this. 

As they say, buying your competitors' name on Google Adwords is the sincerest form of flattery. Kudos to the Shippable team!

Build status is now integrated with GitHub pull requests!

A good continuous integration and deployment solution integrates seamlessly with customer workflows and acts like an invisible helper (for the most part) to ensure that the codebase is always deployable. Shippable strives to do just that. Users are notified about build status in their Inbox and they can change config settings by changing a few lines in the shippable.yml file in their repository. All without coming to the Shippable UI.

Today, we have enabled a significant scenario which will help further this philosophy - support for the GitHub commit status API.
