Announcing macOS Runners in Bitbucket Pipelines

We are happy to announce that Bitbucket Pipelines now supports macOS self-hosted runners. We have moved from beta to an official release. You can now create a self-hosted runner and run it on your macOS infrastructure to run macOS and iOS builds. Since you’re using your own runner, you won't be charged for Bitbucket Pipelines build minutes.

Announcing the Open Beta for Linux Shell Runners in Bitbucket Pipelines

We are happy to announce that Bitbucket Pipelines now supports non-containerized Linux Shell self-hosted runners. This is currently in beta. You can now create a self-hosted runner and run it on your Linux infrastructure without container restrictions. Since it is your infrastructure, you will not be charged for the build minutes used by your self-hosted runner.

More reliable merge checks

We are introducing a change to the pull request merge checks that will make them more reliable. Specifically, we will no longer allow pull requests to be merged while a build is in progress. It was possible for a pull request to be merged while some of its builds were still in progress and for those builds to fail after the merge has completed. This created an undesirable situation if build merge checks were enabled.

Default Pull Request Tasks

There are multiple ways to create a task on a pull request. They can be added from the sidebar, top-level pull request comments, file-level comment or inline comments. Once created, they all appear in the sidebar. On any repository, merge checks can be configured for any branch to only allow merging if all pull request tasks are resolved. This is a very useful functionality if some tasks are critical to be resolved before changes are merged.

Improving performance on complex diffs

Bitbucket Cloud is making changes to pull request diff functionality that will improve diff performance, particularly on complex diffs. We are changing our diff algorithm from what we call a '3-way' diff to a 2-way 'three-dot' diff, which will show the difference between the tip of a source branch and the commit from which it branched off the destination, as shown below. This new diff will be implemented on the Pull request page and Branch page in the coming weeks.

Announcing support for Windows runners in Bitbucket Pipelines

We are happy to announce that Bitbucket Pipelines now supports self-hosted runners on Windows. You can create a self-hosted runner and run it on your Windows infrastructure to run builds with the.Net framework. Since you're using your own runner, you won’t be charged for any Bitbucket Pipelines build minutes. This self-hosted runner will be non-containerized, allowing your CI/CD step to access the host’s hardware, such as the graphics card or any connected external devices.

A modern approach to change management with Bitbucket Cloud and Jira Service Management

One of my teammates calls change management the "eat your vegetables of ITSM." Just like eating veggies is important for getting nutrients and staying healthy, there is good reason to practice change management — the need for coordination between sometimes misaligned teams and regulatory requirements. Of course, we all know getting our greens can be unappetizing. It's not unlike the often bitter process of navigating complex, slow, and bureaucratic change management systems.
