Bpipe Version

Download: bpipe-


This release includes a number of smaller features and improvements and some important fixes.


  • Ability to filter gitlab issues identified by title search for updating

  • Feature: support for 'debug' command that launches groovy shell. Add debug() to pipeline stage to launch interactive shell.

  • Revamp monitoring of command status for PBS/Torque based pipelines, by pooling calls to qstat between commands.

  • Feature: archive command to clean up .bpipe directory into restorable zip file

  • Support referencing params set on command line in bpipe.config

  • Bpipe pipelines can now accept the first line as a "shebang" so that bpipe pipelines become executable scripts. ie: make the first line of your pipeline: #!/path/to/bpipe


  • Fix not completely robust reading of exit code for local commands (sometimes command succeeds when shouldn't)

  • Fix local commands not always terminating on explicit stop

  • Add setsid by default to local jobs on linux - prevents some cases where jobs abort when precessing ctrl-c after starting bpipe

  • Fix new gitlab issues with large content failing to send

  • Fix possible runaway killing of processes when local preallocated jobs are explicitly stopped with bpipe stop

  • Fix file notifications not always incrementing and therefore overwriting previous notification

  • Fix notification manager not respecting timeout to allow for setup of channels

  • Fix possible error due to race condition reading read PID with local command executor

  • Fix file handle leak on some file systems with large scale highly parallelised, long running pipelines

  • Fix the default file notification channel overwriting files from other send channels

  • Fix possible error if input is referenced in details of send
