Streamlined macOS delivery

We know how painful it is to have delays in Xcode image availability.

Our team has been working to streamline our process, and we are now down to under 3 days from Apple release to availability on CircleCI on the last four image updates. Check our changelog for future Xcode updates.

CircleCI releases Google Binary Authorization orb

We are proud to be a launch partner for Google’s recent general-availability release of Binary Authorization, a security control for container images deployed on Google Kubernetes Engine. Our Binary Authorization orb simplifies the process of validating images that are built, tested, and deployed using CircleCI, ensuring only those images that have been signed by trusted authorities during the CI/CD process can be run on GKE.
