Release tracking bug:

New features

Package Drone 0.13.0 has the follow new features:

Trigger system

The trigger systems allows to hook in additional actions during processing. Trigger points can either be system internal, like "post add artifact", or configurable, like the HTTP endpoint, where it is possible to configure HTTP endpoints which trigger their actions once the endpoint is accessed using an HTTP POST request.

Trigger actions can work on the trigger context, which may be different for each trigger point. Trigger and action both announce which context they can work on and the system will ensure that only matching trigger/action combinations are possible.

Filter API

Internally a new filter API was started. This allows to query the Package Drone storage for a set of artifacts instead of asking for all from the storage an filtering later. This should come in handy when implementing a search and query UI and also when implementing new storage backends.


For implementing the trigger system, the storage backend format had to be enhanced. This is a seamless process during the upgrade, but is not backwards compatible.

Also the main channel list has be worked on in order to give a better overview. At least I tried ;-) Contributions and ideas are welcome!
