Build Tool Hippo.NET 1.4.0 Released
Last night I released a new version of the Hippo.NET Build Tool. Although it's a minor update, some cool new features are introduced:
- Hippo.Client multi-project support
From now on, you can manage multiple projects from a single Hippo.Client instance. You can easily switch, without having to restart the client, or having to alter the config file.
- Get Latest Binaries Command
After a successful build, most of the developers need to update their local assemblies with the newly compiled ones. Now this can be accomplished from within the Hippo.Client application, with a single click. For each project you can define the GetLatestBinCommand, for example a batch file that copies all the latest binaries from the build server to your development PC. Notice that this is a client-side feature.
- Automatically Get Latest Binaries
The GetLatestBinCommand can be executed automatically after a successful build.
As you can see all the features are client-side improvements. At this point I can already tell you the next release will focus on server-side improvements, like Scheduled Builds. This can be expected within 2 weeks. For now, download the 1.4.0 version here.
