Bamboo 5.9 upgrade notes
We’ve collected some important notes on upgrading to Bamboo 5.9. For details on all the new features and improvements we’ve introduced in this release, see the Bamboo 5.9 release notes.
Here’s some important information you should know about before upgrading.
Changes to Clover Plugin integration
Automatic Clover integration for Maven 2 and Maven 3 tasks has been changed. It has tighter integration and adds Clover goals between goals from an original command so that a build will be performed only once (i.e. it will not run a separate build phase as it did before). Automatic Clover integration will not happen when your Maven task contains the
deploy commands; this is to protect your repositories from being polluted by instrumented code.
Check if any of your Maven tasks that use automatic Clover integration use the
deploy Maven commands. If they do: either disable automatic Clover integration for those jobs or change the phase to the
verify command (or earlier) or set up a dedicated job for Clover. Otherwise, your jobs will not produce Clover's coverage reports.
This release of Bamboo does not introduce any changes to supported platforms. For more information about what the latest stable release of Bamboo supports, see Supported platforms.
