We have an exclusive promotion to offer you this week from Zutubi. Pulse is a continuous integration server (or automated build server) built with a focus on saving you time. Every time you commit a change, Pulse builds and tests your code, notifying you of the results. Key features include: simple setup, a comprehensive web interface (for both configuration and reporting), multi-platform distributed builds, personal builds (test before your commit your changes), and a unique templated configuration system that allows you to configure similar projects without repetition.

Pulse is free for small teams, open source projects and 30 day evaluations. You can download and try it any time from:


This week Zutubi are giving away two free professional licences (normally $2,500). To take part in this promotion, please send me an email at b.cranford@clearview-itrs.co.uk with ‘pulse promotion’ in the subject line. We’ll draw the winner on Friday.
