As some of you may already know, we've had the deployment feature in development for over six months. For those who don't know, deployment allow you to deploy your code directly from a particular branch and repository from either GitHub or BitBucket. This means your code can be on the server in seconds instead of having to use an FTP or SSH client to upload your files.
