  • v2.9.2 Changes

    December 08, 2020

    ๐Ÿ› Bug fixes

    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed the profile menu wrapping because the avatar shows more often and hiding the profile name was not kept in sync.
    • ๐Ÿ— Reverted too early deprecation of the format_fn, builders, wantProperties, wantSteps, wantPreviousBuild, wantLogs arguments of HttpStatusPush.
    • ๐Ÿ’… Reverted accidental too early migration of MasterShellCommand and HTTP steps to new style (#5674).
  • v2.9.1 Changes

    December 05, 2020

    ๐Ÿ› Bug fixes

    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed checkConfig failures in GitHubStatusPush and GitLabStatusPush (#5664).
    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed incorrect deprecation notice for the builders argument of GitLabStatusPush.
  • v2.9.0 Changes

    December 04, 2020

    ๐Ÿ› Bug fixes

    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed a bug preventing the timeout=None parameter of CopyDirectory step from having effect (#3032).
    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed a bug in GitHubStatusPush that would cause silent failures for builders that specified multiple codebases.

    • ๐Ÿ’… Throwing an exception out of a log observer while processing logs will now correctly fail the step in the case of new style steps.
    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed an issue where git fetch would break on tag changes by adding the -f option. This could previously be handled by manually specifying clobberOnFailure, but as that is rather heavy handed and off by default, this new default functionality will keep Buildbot in sync with the repository it is fetching from.

    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed HashiCorpVaultSecretProvider reading secrets attributes, when they are not named value
    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed buildbot.changes.HgPoller misuse of hg heads -r <branch> to hg heads <branch> because -r option shows heads that may not be on the wanted branch.

    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed permission denied in rmtree() usage in PrivateTemporaryDirectory on Windows

    • ๐Ÿ‘ท The worker preparation step now shows the worker name.

    ๐Ÿ—„ Deprecations and Removals

    ๐Ÿ— buildbot.test.fake.httpclientservice.HttpClientService.getFakeService() has been deprecated. Use getService method of the same class.

    ๐Ÿ’… The MTR step has been deprecated due to migration to new style steps and the build result APIs. The lack of proper unit tests made it too time-consuming to migrate this step along with other steps. Contributors are welcome to step in, migrate this step and add a proper test suite so that this situation never happens again.

    ๐Ÿ’… Many steps have been migrated to new style from old style.

    ๐Ÿ’… This only affects users who use steps as base classes for their own steps. New style steps provide a completely different set of functions that may be overridden. Direct instantiation of step classes is not affected. Old and new style steps work exactly the same in that case and users don't need to do anything.

    ๐Ÿš€ The old-style steps have been deprecated since Buildbot v0.9.0 released in October 2016. The support for old-style steps will be removed entirely Buildbot v3.0.0 which will be released in near future. Users are advised to upgrade their custom steps to new-style steps as soon as possible.

    ๐Ÿš€ A gradual migration path is provided for steps that are likely to be used as base classes. Users need to inherit from <StepName>NewStyle class and convert all overridden APIs to use new-style step APIs. The old-style <StepName> classes will be provided until Buildbot v3.0.0 release. In Buildbot v3.0.0 <StepName> will refer to new-style steps and will be equivalent to <StepName>NewStyle. <StepName>NewStyle aliases will be removed in Buildbot v3.2.0.

    ๐Ÿ’… The list of old-style steps that have new-style equivalents for gradual migration is as follows:

    • Configure (new-style equivalent is ConfigureNewStyle)
    • Compile (new-style equivalent is CompileNewStyle)
    • HTTPStep (new-style equivalent is HTTPStepNewStyle)
    • GET, PUT, POST, DELETE, HEAD, OPTIONS (new-style equivalent is GETNewStyle, PUTNewStyle, POSTNewStyle, DELETENewStyle, HEADNewStyle, OPTIONSNewStyle)
    • MasterShellCommand (new-style equivalent is MasterShellCommandNewStyle)
    • ShellCommand (new-style equivalent is ShellCommandNewStyle)
    • SetPropertyFromCommand (new-style equivalent is SetPropertyFromCommandNewStyle)
    • WarningCountingShellCommand (new-style equivalent is WarningCountingShellCommandNewStyle)
    • Test (new-style equivalent is TestNewStyle)

    ๐Ÿ’… The list of old-style steps that have been converted to new style without a gradual migration path is as follows:

    • BuildEPYDoc
    • CopyDirectory
    • DebLintian
    • DebPbuilder
    • DirectoryUpload
    • FileDownload
    • FileExists
    • FileUpload
    • HLint
    • JsonPropertiesDownload
    • JsonStringDownload
    • LogRenderable
    • MakeDirectory
    • MaxQ
    • Mock
    • MockBuildSRPM
    • MsBuild, MsBuild4, MsBuild12, MsBuild14, MsBuild141
    • MultipleFileUpload
    • PerlModuleTest
    • PyFlakes
    • PyLint
    • RemoveDirectory
    • RemovePYCs
    • RpmLint
    • RpmBuild
    • SetPropertiesFromEnv
    • Sphinx
    • StringDownload
    • TreeSize
    • Trial
    • VC6, VC7, VC8, VC9, VC10, VC11, VC12, VC14, VC141
    • VS2003, VS2005, VS2008, VS2010, VS2012, VS2013, VS2015, VS2017

    โž• Additionally, all source steps have been migrated to new style without a gradual migration path. Ability to be used as base classes was not documented and thus is considered unsupported. Please submit any custom steps to Buildbot for inclusion into the main tree to reduce maintenance burden. Additionally, bugs can be submitted to expose needed APIs publicly for which a migration path will be provided in the future.

    ๐Ÿ’… The list of old-style source steps that have been converted to new style is as follows:

    • Bzr
    • CVS
    • Darcs
    • Gerrit
    • Git
    • GitCommit
    • GitLab
    • GitPush
    • GitTag
    • Monotone
    • Mercurial
    • P4
    • Repo
    • Source

    - SVN

    ๐Ÿšš The undocumented and broken RpmSpec step has been removed.

    ๐Ÿ— The usage of certain parameters have been deprecated in BitbucketServerPRCommentPush, MailNotifier, PushjetNotifier and PushoverNotifier reporters. They have been replaced by the generators parameter. The support for the deprecated parameters will be removed in Buildbot v3.0.

    ๐Ÿ—„ The list of deprecated parameters is as follows:

    • mode
    • tags
    • builders
    • buildSetSummary
    • messageFormatter
    • subject
    • addLogs
    • addPatch
    • schedulers
    • branches
    • watchedWorkers

    - messageFormatterMissingWorker

    The undocumented NotifierBase class has been renamed to ReporterBase.

    ๐Ÿ—„ The undocumented HttpStatusPushBase class has been deprecated. Please use ReporterBase directly.

    ๐Ÿ—„ The send method of the reporters based on HttpStatusPushBase has been deprecated. This affects only users who implemented custom reporters that directly or indirectly derive HttpStatusPushBase. Please use sendMessage as the replacement.

    The following reporters have been affected:

    • HttpStatusPush
    • BitbucketStatusPush
    • BitbucketServerStatusPush
    • BitbucketServerCoreAPIStatusPush
    • GerritVerifyStatusPush
    • GitHubStatusPush
    • GitLabStatusPush
    • HipChatStatusPush

    - ZulipStatusPush

    ๐Ÿ— BuildBot now requires SQLAlchemy 1.2.0 or newer.

    ๐Ÿ“š Deprecation warnings have been added to the buildbot.status module. It has been deprecated in documentation since v0.9.0.

    ๐Ÿ— buildbot.interfaces.WorkerTooOldError is deprecated in favour of buildbot.interfaces.WorkerSetupError

    ๐Ÿšš The worker_transition module has been removed.
