More GoCD Pros »

"It is very easy to make a software release. It used to take us at least a couple of hours to make a release, now we went to production with a new one last night. This new release took me five minutes.""The most valuable feature is the snapshot functionality, which allows us to access previous versions of the artifacts.""The stability is good. I haven't experienced any issues."

Cons
"The documentation really should be improved by including real examples and more setup cases."
