Stacks updates, SLA and Xcode betas

#1

Hello, I was considering to move our company’s CI to bitrise and I was wondering:

  1. Is there an official SLA for the deployment of new version of Xcode when they come out?
  2. Do you provide images with beta version of Xcode/Xamarin studio?

Hi @FWFabio,

Thanks for asking this here! :slight_smile:

No SLA, but our usual time is 24-48 hours after the release. You can check previous updates and releases here: https://discuss.bitrise.io/tags/stack-updates

Yes we do - for Xamarin we provide 3 stacks, for the 3 Xamarin channels (stable, beta, alpha), and we update those every weekend to the latest versions. There’s one LTS (long term support) stack for Xamarin too, which is not updated - useful if you need a really stable environment.

You can read more about the stack update types and schedules at:

https://discuss.bitrise.io/t/how-are-the-bitrise-io-stacks-updated-and-with-what-frequency/281

Note for Xcode betas: we only provide the latest beta, when a new beta comes out we replace the the previous beta stack with the new one. So, for example, right now we have Xcode 8.3 beta 3 available, but beta 2 and earlier are not available, and once beta 4 is released (or the final, stable Xcode 8.3) we’ll no longer provide beta 3.

If you have any question, just let us know! :wink:
