5.3.2 Release Notes

Release Date

8:30pm PST, Saturday, March 11, 2017


  • Web App URLs are now friendly: URLs now show source control username, project name, etc. No more ugly GUIDs!
  • New default Docker images launched: From release 5.3.2 onwards, Shippable will introduce new machine images on each release with the latest tooling and official Docker images. Read more here
  • Support for docker 1.13 with ubuntu 14.04/16.04: Examples in our documentation
  • Custom Dashboard: Users can create a personal dashboard to view only projects they're interested in.
  • API documentation updated: We've moved to using Swagger to document the API so it is always up to date.
  • Support for YML dictionary format in CI environment variables: Ability to specify multiple environment variables on separate lines without triggering a matrix build. Examples in our documentation
  • Migrate resources/jobs/triggers from one syncRepo to another: Ability to move your pipelines config to a new repo. Learn more
  • Service deployments and custom namespaces for Kubernetes: Examples in our documentation
  • Support for passthrough dockerOptions for Kubernetes: Examples in our documentation


  • Account deletion fails when a user has lost access to an enabled project
  • Few jobs timing out before reaching build_ci: The job trigger has been refactored to fix this issue
  • CI jobs fail when trying to pull Docker images: Jobs failed due to a Docker DNS issue. This fix adds a nameserver to the stable/unstable AMIs and resolves the issue
