After years of frustration with Active Forums on Dotnetnuke, we finally got around to moving to a new forums platform. Forunately we are able to keep most of the old content!

Today we released version 1.9 of Continua CI. Here's a summary of the main new features.

I'm not usually one for publishing roadmaps, mostly because I don't like to promise something and not deliver. That said, we've had a few people ask recently what is happening with Continua CI. This post outlines our plans for the rest of 2018 and into the future.

Continuous Integration Servers are often underspecified when it comes to hardware. In the early days of Automated Builds, the build server was quite often that old pc in the corner of the office, or an old server in the data center that no one else wanted. Developers weren't doing many builds per day, so it worked, it was probably slow but that didn't seem to matter much. Fast forward 20 years, and the CI server is now a critical service. The volume and frequency of builds has increased dramatically, and a slow CI server can be a real problem in an environment where we want fast feedback on that code we just committed (even though it "worked on my machine"). Continuous Deployment only adds to the workload of the CI server. In this post I'm going to cover off some ideas to hopefully improve the performance of your CI server.
