SwitchTower is now Capistrano

Posted by jamis

We were served with a “cease and desist” from Raindance Communications, Inc. over the use of their registered trademark SWITCHTOWER on Friday. This led to a wild three-day brainstorming session and a new name for SwitchTower: Capistrano.

New gems and so forth will be available tomorrow, as well as updated documentation using the new name. For existing SwitchTower users, you’ll need to run cap -A . on each of your projects, once the new gems are available and installed. (cap is the new name of the switchtower utility.)

You can read all about the brainstorming process and how the new name was selected on Jamis’ blog.
