Today is a big day for Heroku Pipelines — our continuous delivery feature that provides a visual sequence of app environments in which to test, stage, and deliver code through to production. Pipelines is now released for General Availability (GA).
Heroku Pipelines provides teams of all sizes a new way to visualize and manage the development of applications, features, and fixes from dev and test, to staging, to production (and supports even more stages if that's your team's thing). Each Pipeline stage contains the Heroku apps, resources, and add-ons necessary to test your applications before "promoting" it to the next stage.
The Pipelines GitHub integrations include automatic or manual deployment of branches, and a new way to test GitHub pull requests in disposable Heroku "review apps" before you merge the code -- with workflow support for the CI you already use with GitHub.

“Heroku Pipelines works seamlessly with GitHub to bring the code in your pull requests to life, providing a streamlined continuous delivery workflow,” said Tim Clem, Product Manager, GitHub. “Pipelines integrates with the GitHub API to deliver a fantastic developer workflow.”
