Xcode 9 Beta 2

Today we updated our Xcode 9.0 beta image to Xcode 9.0 beta 2 with the latest 10.2 simulators. To start using it, add the following to your circle.yml:

    version: "9.0"

This image tag will be upgraded automatically when new betas are released by Apple, until the final release of Xcode 9.

Xcode 8.3.3

For mobile, we have just released a build image that allows you to use the latest stable version of Xcode, 8.3.3. To start using it, add the following to your circle.yml:

    version: "8.3.3"


The Workflows feature is available on CircleCI 2.0. It is designed with a flexible algorithm to support very complex job scheduling and orchestration using a simple set of new configuration keys. See the Steps to Configure Workflows section of the Migrating from 1.0 to 2.0 document for instructions. Refer to the Orchestrating Workflows document for examples and conceptual information.

Xcode 9 Beta 1 Availability

This update makes Xcode 9 Beta available for all macOS builds. Specify version 9.0 in your circle.yml file to override the default.

Authenticate With Google

This feature enables users to log in to CircleCI with a Google account and provides new users with the opportunity to experience the application and selected demo projects without providing access to their code repository.

Filter Build Emails by Project

Now you can filter your build emails by project without doing subject matching. This feature adds the standard List-ID header with to make it easy to filter build emails into per-repo or per-org folders.

Import Project Environment Variables

This feature enables you to import project environment variables from projects in the same organization to save time and typing. On the Settings screen for your project, click the Import Variable(s) button on the Environment Variables page and select from the list.

Authorize Only Public GitHub Repositories

This feature enables you to join CircleCI without providing access to your private GitHub repos. To limit access, select Public Repos Only from the Start with Github menu on the signup page.

My/All Build Filtering

Looking for the builds most relevant to your actions? You can now filter builds by “my builds” (builds you triggered) or “all builds” (builds triggered by other users on your team). The filter can be found near the top, right-hand corner of your dashboard. Currently, this feature is only available on the organization and project-level.

Automatic collection of Fastlane logs for macOS projects

The logs produced by the Fastlane tools are now being stored as build artifacts so that you can easily access them later.

Granular control over fork PR builds

It is now possible to control whether to run builds for pull requests coming from forks and whether to pass the secrets from the main project to the fork on such builds, via two separate settings. Check out the Advanced Settings tab for your project for more details.

Improved code signing flow for OS X builds

It is now possible to upload provisioning profiles under the ‘Permissions’ section of your OS X project settings. Once uploaded, we will automatically import the profiles during your OS X builds. Profiles are encrypted at rest on the CircleCI side.

This update removes the need to keep the provisioning profiles checked into your repository and simplifies the setup of code signing for new OS X projects.

CircleCI offers the ability to link directly to build output steps. We’ve now extended this feature into build email notifications. You should now see a clickable ‘Failing Command’ on (failed) build notification emails which will open the build page to the failed command in your build output.

Confirmation modal for stop building projects on CircleCI,

We have added a confirmation message to prevent users from accidentally stopping the builds on CircleCI.

Interactive ‘Build Timing’ graph

We have added functionality to click through the ‘Build Timing’ graph to access different sections of the build.

Anchor to a particular step within build output

Users can show share link to a particular step within their build output; Eg.

Flash notifications for adding & deleting keys

We have added flash notification when users add or remove Apple Code Signing key, API permissions, SSH key or environment variables.

Fetch Cocoapods from S3 instead of Git in iOS projects

A few weeks ago we started downloading Cocoapods specs from S3 instead of Git in projects that use our iOS inference. It is now also possible to download the specs from S3 in projects with manual configuration.

Please check out this Discuss post for an example of downloading specs from S3 via a circle.yml command.
