Ubuntu Make 16.03 features Eclipse JEE, Intellij EAP, Kotlin and a bunch of fixes!

I'm really delighted to announce a new Ubuntu Make release, scoring 16.03, bringing updates for a bunch of frameworks while introducing new support! I'm also really proud as this new release features three new awesome contributors: Tankypon, adding the Superpowers game editor framework, Eakkapat Pattarathamrong, adding more tests for Visual Studio Code, and Almeida, doing some great updates to the portuguese translations! The returning awesome work from Galileo Sartor an Omer Sheikh got us new Eclipse JEE installation support, IntelliJ IDEA EAP and Kotlin compiler.

Netbeans and Rust support in Ubuntu Make 15.11

After some releases bringing updates, bug fixes, refactoring, tests improvements and more minor features and automations, here is time again for a noticeable feature release! Thanks to Fabio Colella, we now have NetBeans support in Ubuntu Make! Installing it is just a umake ide netbeans away and just relax while Ubuntu Make is doing the hard work so that you can enjoy this IDE. Another new feature is the Rust support by Jared Ravetch.

Ubuntu Make 15.09.2 enables you to install Android SDK only.

I'm proud to announce this new Ubuntu Make release, with excellent new feature and fixes from our community. First, welcome Sebastian Schubert to the Ubuntu Make contributor family. He did some awesome work on implementing Android SDK only support (for those not wanting to install the whole Android Studio bundle) in Ubuntu Make! As usual, this is backed up with large and medium tests to cover us, great enhancement! :)

Ubuntu Make 15.09 featuring experimental Unity 3D editor support

Last thurday, the Unity 3D team announced providing some experimental build of Unity editor to Linux. This was quite an exciting news, especially for me as a personal Unity 3D user. Perfect opportunity to implements this install support in Ubuntu Make, and this is now available for download! The "experimental" comes from the fact that it's experimental upstream as well, there is only one version out (and so, no download section when we'll always fetch latest) and no checksum support.

Ubuntu Make 15.08 with Scala support and a visual studio code hot fix community story

Here is a little bit of the start of my day: As usual, I open the Ubuntu Make large test suite running continuously against trunk and latest release package. I saw that since yesterday 7PM CEST Visual Studio Code page changed its syntax and is not downloadable anymore by Ubuntu Make. Jumping on the github's project page, I saw a couple of bugs opened about it, and as well a pull request to fix this from a new contributor, Vartan Simonian!

Ubuntu Make 0.7 released with Visual Studio Code support

If you followed recent news, yesterday Microsoft announced Visual Studio Code support on stage during their Build conference. One of the nice surprise was that this new IDE, focused on web and cloud platforms, is available on Mac OS X and of course, on Linux! Some screenshots were presented at the conference with Visual Studio Code running on Ubuntu in an Unity Session. This sounded like a nice opportunity for Ubuntu Make to shine again, and we just added this new support!

Ubuntu Developer Tools Center: how do we run tests?

We are starting to see multiple awesome code contributions and suggestions on our Ubuntu Loves Developers effort and we are eagerly waiting on yours! As a consequence, the spectrum of supported tools is going to expand quickly and we need to ensure that all those different targeted developers are well supported, on multiple releases, always delivering the latest version of those environments, at anytime. A huge task that we can only support thanks to a large suite of tests!

Release early, release often, release every 4h!

It's been a long time I didn't talk about our daily release process on this blog. For those who are you not aware about it, this is what enables us to release continuously most of the components we, as the ubuntu community, are upstream for, to get into the baseline. Historic Some quick stats since the system is in place (nearly since last December for full production): we are releasing as of now 245 components to distro every day (it means, everytime a meaningfull change is in any of those 245 components, we will try to release it).
