- Flexible and pluggable system for running tasks (single actions) and flows (sequences of tasks)
- OAuth based org keychain allowing easy connection to Salesforce orgs and stored in local files using AES encryption

CumulusCI 1.0 (Ant based) Users, PLEASE READ
The master branch now contains CumulusCI 2 which is not backwards compatible with the previous CumulusCI that was based on Ant. If you are using the Ant targets, please switch to using the legacy-1.0 branch of the repository which contains the Ant based version. Or, consider upgrading to CumulusCI 2.
