We’re counting down the weeks until Blue Ocean 1.0, and we’re getting close! In this past week, the first release candidate has gone out to the Update Center, along with a new Pipeline Editor plugin. The Blue Ocean Pipeline Editor is its own plugin which integrates into Blue Ocean, so this was a coordinated release with Blue Ocean 1.0 rc1.

Editing a Pipeline

Noteworthy this week:

  • RC1 includes the Blue Ocean Pipeline Editor, which is integrates support for branch editing and saving the Pipeline back to GitHub (also referred to as "round-tripping").

  • Many dependencies have been upgraded

  • Per-stage raw logs can be downloaded, this will be included in the next release.

  • Editor design improvements

  • Fixes for overflowing text

  • The new sleeker favorite card design has been released, so you can fit more favorites on your screen!

Pipeline Favorites

The Blue Ocean Pipeline Editor is better integrated into a few different screens in Blue Ocean. For example, you can open the editor from the results screen (top right):
