Buildbot-0.8.7 and Buildbot-slave-0.8.7 are now available from the
usual sources:


The 0.8.7 release brings a plethora of new features:
 * Support for building projects composed of multiple codebases
 * New, much more flexible property interpolation support (Interpolate)
 * Significant improvements to the ForceScheduler
 * Much more!

The release also drops support for some older software: Buildbot now
requires at least Python-2.5 and Twisted-9.0.0.

See the release notes for more:

While the field of contributors to this version was wide, a few people
deserve special recognition for code, reviews, and support:
 * Tom Prince
 * Pierre Tardy
 * Harry Borkhuis
 * Benoît Allard
 * John Carr
 * Georges Racinet
 * Jared Grubb
 * Malcolm Parsons
Let's have a virtual round of applause for everyone who's helped make
Buildbot greater.  Thanks, folks!
