New Feature: Maintains build history

The software now maintains a history of check-ins for reporting purposes. At present it will miss anything that occurs when it's not running. In other words if you go on vacation for a week your stats will be different than your co-workers. We're working on a fix for this, but let us know if you think this is a big deal or not.

New Feature: Reputation

The goal of reputation is to add an element of good-natured competition and fun to your project while simultaneously trying to decrease the amount of time wasted resolving source control conflicts, fixing broken builds, and/or waiting on broken builds.

The idea is each person receives one point for each check-in, and loses four points for each broken build. This should do two things:

1. Encourage smaller more frequent check-ins, which will minimize check-in conflicts between team-members; and
2. Encourage team-members to run tests prior to check-in to decrease chances of breaking the build.

We intend to add more sophistication to the algorithm in a future release (e.g. incorporate code-coverage), but we would love to hear any feedback on what we have now.

If you really don't like the idea of reputation you can turn it off in settings.

New Feature: Build History

The chart on the right shows build durations for the last eight builds. A blue bar indicates a successful build. A red bar indicates a failed build. The Y axis shows duration in minutes. The X axis goes from oldest to newest. Click on a build on the left to show the chart on the right, click off a chart to go back to the user/reputation view (unless you've turned it off).


We're proud of the latest updates and we hope you'll like them. Please don't hesitate to give us feedback on twitter @SirenOfShame or via e-mail: "support" at our domain name.
