Hello world! In this newsletter we're sharing some of the biggest updates and new features in Sturdy v1.7, let's get started!

Since the last issue, where we introduced a whole new workflow with Draft Changes, we've release three minor versions of Sturdy (v1.5.0, v1.6.0, and v1.7.0). (Minor releases when speaking in Semver, but major when it comes to what they enable, and how proud we are of them!)

Highlights in v1.5, v1.6, and v1.7

Sturdy v1.5.0 introduced a new workflow in Sturdy, with Sturdy running on top of any Git repository and provider. Sturdy can now connect natively over the git-protocol to any hosting provider, and brings all of the power and ease-of-use of using Sturdy to providers such as GitLab, Bitbucket, and Azure DevOps.

The same release also added a much-needed improvement to the search in Sturdy, and support for running Sturdy on linux/arm64 and automatic TLS support via Let's Encrypt.

v1.6.0 introduced SSH support for the Git integration.

v1.7.0 added a one-click-ship 🚢 feature to GitHub, where Sturdy can create a PR and merge it for you right away. Shipping your code with Sturdy is now literally 1-click away. We also focused on code-review in v1.7.0, bringing code-review of code written outside of Sturdy to Sturdy. Sturdy now makes all open pull requests to your repository available as draft changes in Sturdy.

This release also contained support for triggering and running your CI/CD pipelines based on any draft, at any time. So that you can utilize the powers of your CI runners to run your tests of your non-commited changes, and keeping my computer fans nice and idle. ;-)

See the CHANGELOG for a full list of changes.

Upgrading our team!

We now have three open positions to come and join our team! You'll get to work on some really cool open-source tech, and have fun while doing it!


Thanks for reading, and until the next post!
— Gustav and team Sturdy
