Electric Cloud is pleased to announce the release of ElectricAccelerator® v5.0.

Original Creation Date: 2010-02-19 01:02:18 UTC


The 5.0 release includes numerous fixes and performance enhancements, as well as the following features:



Electrify enables non-make, parallel build tools to use ElectricAccelerator cluster resources to accelerate builds. Using Electrify, build tools can distribute to cores in the cluster, leveraging ElectricAccelerator’s existing file system technology and job management to provide access to many more cores. 


Electrify is available for Windows and Linux and currently supports the following tools:

  • SCons
  • MSBuild for Visual Basic and C# projects

 Extensive documentation for Electrify is available in chapter 11 of the Electric Make User’s Guide



The subbuild feature provides fast component builds through intelligent build avoidance. Subbuild calculates and then builds only the objects necessary for your component.

Please refer to the release notes (in the docs directory) for a complete listing of enhancements and fixes.
