Zuul, an open source CI/CD platform specializing in multi-system gating, has released version 3 and become an independent project hosted at the OpenStack Foundation (OSF), the company said.
Zuul originally was developed for OpenStack CI testing and has since attracted contributors and users across many different organizations, including BMW, GoDaddy, OpenLab and Wikimedia. Zuul is the third project to be managed by the OSF, joining OpenStack and Kata Containers.
Since 2012, Zuul has been proven at scale as a critical part of the OpenStack development process. As more users and use cases emerged, the team has been decoupling Zuul from OpenStack-specific systems. With V3, Zuul has completed that process, while adding support for a broader range of use cases and development platforms, including GitHub, with the help of contributors including individuals from BMW, GitHub, GoDaddy, Huawei, Red Hat and SUSE.
Zuul is an open source CI/CD platform designed for test-driven open source projects and software development organizations who need to gate against multiple projects and systems before landing a single patch. Zuul is pluggable and supports multiple development platforms, including Gerrit and GitHub, and leverages the Ansible ecosystem for third-party modules. It is ideal for distributed development teams and built with security in mind. Zuul is collaboratively developed under the Apache 2 license and managed by the OpenStack Foundation.
