Flyway 2.2 Released

After exactly 4 months, I am proud to announce the release of Flyway 2.2!

The highlights of this release are:

  • Gradle Support
  • SQL Azure Support
  • Commercial Support Plans

Gradle Support

This was the most requested feature by far. And here it is! Flyway now officially ships with a Gradle plugin!
 

Gradle Logo

 
We've gone to great lengths to ensure the plugin is very intuitive and very well integrated in the Gradle way of doing things. This is all you need in your build.gradle to get started:

buildscript {
    repositories {
        mavenCentral()
    }
    dependencies {
        classpath "com.googlecode.flyway:flyway-gradle-plugin:2.2"
    }
}

apply plugin: 'flyway'
apply plugin: 'java'

flyway {
    url = 'jdbc:...'
    user = '...'
}

Make sure to check out the brand new first steps tutorial. It'll take 5 minutes to get started. It's that easy!

SQL Azure Support

Flyway added supported App Engine and Google Cloud SQL all the way back in version 1.6. As more and more users move turn the cloud, it is important for Flyway to properly support these platforms. Starting today with 2.2 Flyway now fully supports SQL Azure on the Windows Azure cloud!

Commercial Support Plans

Flyway is growing fast. In fact we have already passed the 35,000 download mark for this year alone! And there is no stopping in sight!

This means that Flyway is now deployed at an increasingly large number of companies. Lately more and more of these companies have been asking for professional support, to make sure someone is there when there is a problem.

To address this, we are launching a commercial support offering today:

This is purely optional and on top of the existing Stack Overflow and GitHub forums.

Get it while it's hot!

On top of the features above, this release packs a ton of bug fixes and documentation improvements. All the details are in the release notes.

It wouldn't have been possible without the awesome work of the many contributors. I would like extend special thanks to two people in particular:

  • Ben Manes for his great work on the Gradle Plugin
  • David Harrigan for sponsoring a fix

Enjoy the release and get it while it's hot!

 

P.S.: SBT users - we already have a plugin cooking on GitHub for you... Give it a spin! We would truly appreciate your feedback!
