XebiaLabs has announced a new version of its software release orchestration product XL Release, which improves release orchestration across people, processes and tools. The new version includes features such as "Dynamic Data Management", enhanced ALM integration and usability improvements for non-technical users. These enhancements make it easier for teams to dynamically manage the information used in the software release process and significantly simplify how enterprise IT teams can manage large and complex software releases.
XL Release allows companies to automate, orchestrate and get visibility into software release pipelines at enterprise scale. Andreas Prins, Manager, Lease IT at ING Bank, says: "XL Release reduced our cycle time to production from 6 weeks to 34 minutes. The release orchestration and pipeline visibility it provides are crucial for us to meet our Continuous Delivery goals."

XL Release 4.8 Feature Highlights:
* Dynamic data management: New global and release specific variables allow release administrators to more efficiently manage complex releases and easily update data in real time as it becomes available throughout a release.
* User-friendly design for non-technical users: Non-technical users can also take a bigger role in getting software out the door and into production by designing more advanced release flows.
* ALM integration: Enhanced integration with Service Management tools such as JIRA and ServiceNow. A new, enhanced JIRA plugin allows users to query open tickets from within XL Release, resolve or comment on them, and then update the tickets in JIRA.
* Usability enhancements: XL Release 4.8 also includes numerous enhancements that improve the user experience, including an updated user interface and new action menus
