Continuous Integration Server AnthillPro 3.1 Released

Urbancode has released AnthillPro 3.1, a commercial version of the Anthill OS open-source continuous integration server. AnthillPro is available in two flavors: Build Management Server (BMS), and Application Lifecycle Automation Server (ALAS). ALAS adds additional features, including support for multiple deployment environments (e.g., DEV, QA, UAT and PROD).

Anyone interested in AnthillPro can download a 30-day free trial version (registration required), or else simply browse the online documentation.
