Electric Cloud is pleased to announce the release of ElectricAccelerator® v7.0

Original Creation Date: 2013-04-13 21:21:09 UTC


This release of ElectricAccelerator contains a number of new features that improve performance, reliability and maintainability of an ElectricAccelerator deployment.

  • GNU Make performance optimization functionality
    • The dependency optimization feature can learn which dependencies are actually needed for a build.
      ElectricAccelerator then uses that information to improve performance in subsequent builds.
    • The parse avoidance feature can effectively eliminate makefile parse time in many builds. By
      caching and reusing parse result files, ElectricAccelerator can speed up both full builds and
      incremental builds. Parse avoidance works when emulating GNU Make with clusters and/or local
      agents (ElectricAccelerator Developer Edition).
    • The dependency optimization and parse avoidance features have been optimized for Android
      platform builds.
    • Additional platform support - ElectricAccelerator now supports the following platforms:
      • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.3
      • Ubuntu 12.10
      • Windows 8

Electric Cloud recommends all customers upgrade their Accelerator components: Cluster Manager, cluster nodes (agent machines), and all local emake build machines to version 7.0. See the Release Notes for a summary of all product improvements and known issues.
