Simple Continuous Integration Tools (scit) is an automated build and or test system consisting of a set of Perl and expect scripts utilizing common tools that are available for most Unix-like operating systems. The intention is to keep it lightweight while still providing a full set of features. The current version has a command-line and an HTML user interface. It should be possible to make it run on very modest hardware; part of the development and testing has been done on a Nokia N900 phone with both master and slave roles running on the same unit.

Release Notes: New slave hosts should now become visible in the HTML user interface immediately after being added. Previously a restart of generate_html was required. Problems in the demo script with committing multiple dummy changes have been fixed. Dependency triggers between a project that doesn't use version control and one that does are now supported.
Release Notes: A bug that caused problems when trying to stop local slaves has been fixed. The svn_scitmaster script now just waits instead of quitting right after starting if no project is configured. A dynamic authentication system for lighttpd (dasl) has been added. Dasl has been tested with Ubuntu 11.04; other distributions may need a little manual tweaking of the sysV script to start lighttpd via lighttpd-angel instead of directly.
Release Notes: A debug switch has been added to the start scripts; without it, the background processes now write a lot less than before to the log files. The stability improvements for the background processes introduced in version 0.19 have been expanded to include the remote slave processes.
Release Notes: Support for passive slaves on hosts where the SHH server runs on non-standard ports has been added. The addnewhost script takes an optional fourth parameter specifying the port number. A more robust and user-friendly system was implemented for controlling the background processes on the master with start/stop scripts.
Release Notes: Pending force triggered builds are now shown on the main HTML page. A clean build option has been added. When it is enabled, the directory checked out from the version control system is removed before a new version is checked out.
