AppCloud Naming Changes

There is a well known aphorism among developers; there are only two hard problems in Computer Science: naming, cache invalidation and off-by-one errors. We will leave cache invalidation and off-by-one errors for another discussion. As part of our desire for clarity and consistency, we have started reworking how we refer to objects and activities in AppCloud.

We want to give everyone a heads up since name changes can be a potential source of confusion. The names may be new, but we haven't changed any behavior.

'Rebuild' is now 'Update Instances': apply any pending software updates and configuration changes to all instances in your environment

'Ship It!' is now 'Deploy': deploy your application with Engine Yard CLI or the Legacy Web Deploy

Let us know what you think and keep an eye on the blog for future updates.
