Example: task :setup, :roles => [ :app, :web, :db ] # normally this would run every where end ROLES=app cap setup # this will only run for the app role, overwritting the default declaration * Added :hosts option to task definition that allows you to specify cross-cutting tasks [DHH]. Example: task :setup, :hosts => [ "06.example.com", "01.example.com" ] do # this task will happen on 06 and 01 regardless of which roles they belong to end * Fix operator precedence problem in script for touching the revisions.log #3223 [jason.garber@emu.edu] == 1.1.0 / March 6th, 2006 * Simplify the generated capistrano.rake file, and make it easier to customize * Use rake-like command-line semantics ("cap deploy", in addition to "cap -a deploy") * Rename to capistrano * Make the generated capistrano.rake file use rake namespaces, and include all default tasks * Look for config/deploy.rb, capfile, and Capfile by default == 1.0.1 / February 20th, 2006 * Fix broken switchtower_invoke function in switchtower.rake (missing require statement) == 1.0.0 / Feburary 18th, 2006 * Make CVS module's :local value default to "." * Add "invoke" task for executing one-off commands * Make port selection smarter for gateway connections * Add extension mechanism for custom ST operations and third-party task libraries * Make ST rails rake tasks more configurable * Add Actor#current_task and simplify Task#servers * Add Actor#connect! method for working around lazy connection establishing * Make sure IO::TRUNC is specified for Net::SFTP uploads (#3510) * Add branch support to CVS [jeremy@hinegardner.org] (#3596) * Add bazaar-ng SCM module [Damien Merenne] * Add optional :svn_username and :svn_password variables * Allow Proc-valued variables to be set more conveniently (set(:foo) { "bar" }) * Add perforce SCM module [Richard McMahon] * Add bazaar (v1) SCM module [Edd Dumbill] (#3533) * Fix stftime format string used in CVS module to be Windows-compatible (fixes #3383) * Add an better error when a task is run and no servers match the required conditions * Add default spinner and cold_deploy tasks, and spinner_user variable * Changed restart_via variable to (boolean) use_sudo * Only chmod when the revisions.log file is first created * Make UPPERCASE variables work * Added rails_env variable (defaults to production) for use by tasks that employ the RAILS_ENV environment variable * Added Actor.default_io_proc * Set :actor key on SSH channel instances == 0.10.0 / January 2nd, 2006 * Handle ssh password prompts like "someone's password:" * Make CLI#echo available as a class method. * Add CLI#with_echo. * Make the default password prompt available as a class method. # Add documentation for the CLI class. * Add a sanity check to make sure the correct versions of Net::SSH and Net::SFTP are installed. * Added a cleanup task to remove unused releases from the deployment directory * Allow password to be reentered on sudo if it was entered incorrectly * Use && as the command separator for the checkouts, so that errors are caught early. * Ping each SSH connection every 1s during command processing so that long-running commands don't cause the connection to timeout. * Add a 0.01s sleep during the command loop so that the CPU doesn't go ballistic while ST is doing its thing. * Add :restart_via variable for specifying whether restart ought to use :sudo (default, use sudo) * Use SFTP for file transfers (if available). * Add an "update_current" task that will do an svn up on the current release * Use the :checkout variable to determine what operation to use for svn checkouts (instead of co, like "export"). * The Rails rake tasks now load ST directly, instead of invoking it via system * Added ssh_options variable to configure the SSH connection parameters #2734 [jerrett@bravenet.com] * Require Net::SSH 1.0.5 == 0.9.0 / October 18th, 2005 * Use process reaper instead of custom reap script for restarting * Use -S switch to set variables before reading recipe files #2242 * Have setup.rb create a switchtower.cmd file on Win32 platforms #2402 * Add diff_from_last_deploy to the rails switchtower rakefile template * Add diff_from_last_deploy task (currently only works with subversion) * Add deploy_with_migrations task. * Make the migrate task more customizable. * If no password is given with the -p switch, prompt for password immediately. * Do not install a switchtower stub in the script directory.
