Git and Mercurial are the two popular distributed version control systems in use today. There are many reasons for choosing one over the other, but they each do their job very well, and we’re thrilled to support both in Bitbucket Cloud. Bitbucket Cloud is the only, and the largest, hosting service that supports Mercurial. We’re very excited to announce today that Bitbucket Pipelines, the continuous delivery feature within Bitbucket, supports Mercurial now.
Bitbucket Pipelines lets your team build, test, and deploy from Bitbucket. It’s built right within Bitbucket Cloud, giving you end-to-end visibility from coding to deployment. We initially launched Bitbucket Pipelines Beta with Git support only, but thanks to the enthusiastic feedback from our Mercurial users interested in continuous delivery, we decided to implement support for Mercurial as well.
We’re excited that both our Git and Mercurial users are able to run Bitbucket Pipelines today. Sign up and get early access to the beta if you haven’t done so already!
