CircleCI has announced a new feature that will allow developers to automate version control processes directly from the CircleCI user interface.

“If you look at every other deploy and release vendor on the market, they’re built to service centralized release and operations teams who want tighter control over deploys. But this doesn’t reflect the reality of elite software teams who depend on developers to drive and deliver fast innovation. Our approach to CircleCI releases provides a developer-centric workflow that enables them to ship faster and monitor new features in production coupled with the safety net of quickly rolling back releases if something goes wrong”, said Rob Zuber, CTO of CircleCI.

According to the company, the main advantage of this new feature is that it can give developers more confidence in creating releases, as well as reduce the average time to fix issues.

With ongoing Kubernetes and Amazon SageMaker support, developers now have comprehensive visibility into their production deployments and access to rollback commands (e.g., version recovery, component scaling, and component restart).

Some of the key capabilities that will emerge with CircleCI releases include the ability to link CI/CD to customer experiences, real-time service validation, performance degradation prevention, and more.

The Release Dashboard shows a release history for all components with details for each, a list of release environments, and a list of components and associated projects.
