Flynn Progress: Week Ending Nov. 24, 2014

The Flynn web dashboard now ships by default as part of every cluster, whether you use the managed launcher or install on your own infrastructure. The web dashboard lets anyone deploy and scale GitHub apps on a running cluster without ever opening a terminal window.

We’ve started building Flynn every night, so all new installations get the previous night’s build.

Test coverage has also improved and continues to be a major focus.
