We are extremely pleased to announce the first general release of Rundeck 2.0. For those who haven't seen the 2.0.0 in its alpha and beta releases, prepare yourself for a vastly improved Rundeck!
While this is our first general release of 2.0, we are not done yet. We have more exciting ideas and features brewing that you'll see in 2014. Many thanks to the Rundeck community for their ideas, feedback, and inspiration.
Watch our twitter feed for updates and news: https://twitter.com/Rundeck
One caveat: The documentation has not been completely updated (it still has screenshots from beta) but we'll be publishing the final ones very soon.

Try it as a demo
You can try Rundeck 2 in the context of two working examples. Both examples use vagrant to bring up a working Rundeck server with a project and jobs already set up.
- The “anvils” demo: https://github.com/rundeck/anvils-demo
- The basic training example: https://github.com/simplifyops/training-service-oriented
To see Rundeck 2, install Vagrant, checkout one of the repos and run “vagrant up”.
