Hi All,

A new version of Continua CI has been uploaded and is available from Continua CI Downloads. The latest stable version of Continua is

Changes in

  • Feature: New python actions:

  • Enhancement: PowerShell action updated to support version PowerShell Core versions 6 and 7.
  • Enhancement: Wait for completion option added to PowerShell action.

  • Enhancement: Added new Process.OutputEncoding and Process.OutputCodePage agent properties which can be used to control the default output encoding when running command line processes on each agent.
  • Enhancement: Added new Process Output Encoding properties (Encoding Name and Code Page) to the Environment tab of all actions which run a command line. This can be used to override the default output encoding for each action.

  • Enhancement: New default error message patterns to match errors in output from DotNet Build, Publish, Test and Run actions.
  • Enhancement: Added list of Latest Warnings to build log after action output.
  • Enhancement: The output from actions that run a command line process is now wrapped in a “Output” message group in the build log. This is for easier access to Latest Errors and Latest Warnings.

  • Enhancement: Git repositories now allow a blank username. This is required when using a personal access token as the password for some services such as TFS/DevOps.
  • Enhancement: Dotnet Build, Pack, Publish, Restore and Test actions now allow a solution file to be entered for the project path.
  • Enhancement: The ‘Browse’ button on file input boxes in action settings now lists files from the head of the default branch rather than the tip changeset for each repository.

  • Fix: The list of latest errors messages shown in build log after action output did not include errors picked up using error message patterns.
  • Fix: The build variable value is now used rather then the default configuration variable when expanding the Report Filename field.
  • Fix: The poll URL for manual repositories changed to ignore any id sent in the post request content. Previously a id sent by TFS web hook would override the id in the URL.
  • Fix: Correction to default for Maximum Environment Variable Length field on MSBuild action.

  • Upgraded bundled PostgreSQL service to version 9.6.15.
  • Some minor UI updates.
  • Some third party package updates.

Note: You will need to update your agents after upgrading the server to this build.
