XL Deploy 5.0.0 beta 2 released


XebiaLabs Support -

Dear XebiaLabs community,

We are pleased to announce the release of XL Deploy 5.0.0 beta 2. This beta version of XL Deploy introduces several new features.

XL Deploy user interface improvements

The XL Deploy user interface has been improved:

  • In the Deployment Workspace, you can set up a deployment by dragging an application or deployment package onto the target environment or onto a deployed application.
  • In the Repository, you can double-click an item in the hierarchy (such as a directory) to expand it.
  • The menu that appears in the top-right corner has been improved.
  • New icons for applications, environments, infrastructure, and other items have been introduced. 

Automatically map deployeds

When you set up a deployment, the artifacts and resources in your deployment package are now automatically mapped to the containers in the target environment. You can use the buttons at the top of the Deployment Workspace to change the mapping.

Allow deployment by sub-groups

Four new by deployment group orchestrators allow you to deploy to sub-groups and sub-sub-groups of middleware containers sequentially or in parallel.
