This Week in Flynn

We spent a lot of time on the stability of our Continuous Integration System this week.

Several buildpack changes landed, updating Clojure, Python, and Go, and removing support for Grails.

We also deployed some major improvements to the dashboard, adding better GitHub integration for self-hosted Flynn installations and refactoring the user interface.
