Monthly release of Bitrise CLI tools and summary of updates (April, 2017)

We ship a new bitrise cli version on the second Tuesday of every month.
The new release will be available on the
virtual machines on the weekend after the CLI release,
unless we discover any serious bug / regression.

Read on to learn more about this month’s Bitrise CLI release and about the changes around bitrise tools and steps.
