Important Changes

If a tasks included in the <tasks> section fails then none of the subsequent tasks will be executed. This is useful if you have multiple build or test tasks that you want to execute and you want to halt the build after the first failure. However, if you currently have tasks included in the <tasks> section that you want to run with every build (such as the Merge File Task, you should move it into the <publishers> section. The <publishers> section can now contain any CCNet task. All publisher tasks are guaranteed to be executed with each build, regardless of whether the build fails or succeeds.

(CCNET-324) When the CruiseControl.NET server starts up, it now provides warning message if the ccnet.config file contains invalid or unused elements. If you receive such warning messages, please make sure that you correct your ccnet.config file to guarantee that everything is working properly. Please consult the installed documentation for the correct configuration information.

Source Control Providers

Numerous changes have been made to the PVCS (CCNET-274), CVS (CCNET-123), ClearCase (CCNET-382, CCNET-409) and Vault source control providers. PVCS now works with v8. CVS supports a faster way of detecting changes and updating source – try using the <useHistory> element. ClearCase now has AutoGetSource functionality.


(CCNET-33) The CruiseControl.NET service now supports installing multiple versions


(CCNET-420) A new report is available via the WebDashboard that shows timing information for the NAnt build. Requires NAnt 0.85 RC3 to run.
