Previous Release Notes: July 19, 2022 | Version 1.2 release

We’re excited to get the 1.2 release of WVS into all of your hands!

New feature: Flows

We’re introducing tools and workflows to help users create, manage, and utilize their flows. But first, what is a flow? A flow is a unit of automation in which some kind of action is triggered and executed. The end result of which can be something like a build, a render, or a deployment. Think of these as the building blocks for creating your automated studio in the cloud.

For example, you are working on a Unity mobile game. An artist on your team is iterating on a character in Blender and would like to confirm that the changes look good in the game. You can set up an automated flow so that whenever the artist saves a change in Blender and checks in the file, a build is automatically kicked off in the cloud. When the build completes, it is automatically deployed to Testflight. The artist receives a notification of build completion and can review the updated build on their phone–a complete cycle from change to build without requiring any engineering support.

  • You can add, assign, and manage flows using the CLI. See the following documentation for instructions: Here.
  • More technical users can create their own flows by following this documentation: Here.
  • View the outputs of your build flows in the build browser, which is also introduced in this release.
  • Fork our public-facing Hello World project to get a project with all your flows already set up:

Web Client updates

  • The new Build Browser gives everyone on your team a super easy and convenient way to browse all of your builds. You can find the build browser in Outputs on any WVS project. Here are some of the features:

    • See the status of all of your builds. Just from a glance, you’ll be able to see which builds are finishing and pinpoint any builds that have failed.
    • Download your build to your workstation.
    • See relevant information about your build, including build time, branch, and build number.
    • Click on a build to see even more specific information including:
      • A list of all contributors and their check-ins associated with a build.
      • A list of recent builds of the same type.
  • A new and cleaner UI.
  • Focus on the features that are most important to interactive development.
  • See all active locks on your project from Version Control > Locks.

Desktop Client updates

We’ve made a number of usability and day-to-day workflow improvements:

  • Branch switching: You can select your push branch using the desktop app’s branch selector.
  • History clean up: The desktop app no longer adds extra system-level commits to your project history.
  • Merge conflict notification improvements.
  • Other performance and usability improvements.

CLI updates

In addition to a variety of small improvements to usability, the new CLI lets you add flows to your project:

  • Enter wvs flow in the command prompt to see all of the new flow options available.
  • Improved importing of existing projects.
