BuildMaster 5.6.7 Has Been Released

We just shipped BuildMaster 5.6.7. It's a maintenance release of BuildMaster 5.6 which means that there is minimal risk to upgrading from an earlier 5.6. However, if you're planning to upgrade from a version prior to 5.6, make sure to read the appropriate upgrade notes.

To install or upgrade, simply download BuildMaster and run the installer.
