Spoon is pleased to have presented the latest on Windows desktop and server containerization at LANDesk Interchange 2015 in Las Vegas.
Spoon is now available as a native Chrome Extension! The new extension is automatically used when Spoon.net is accessed from Chrome browsers. The extension is hosted in the Google Chrome Store. This replaces the previous NSAPI-based Chrome extension that was deprecated with Chrome 42.
Starting with Google Chrome 42, the NPAPI plugin interface is disabled by default. Since the Spoon browser plugin currently uses NPAPI, this prevents the plugin from functioning. A Chrome-compatible update for the Spoon plugin is coming soon. In the meantime, you can use the following workaround to enable NPAPI plugins in the Chrome browser settings.
It’s now even easier to integrate Spoon containers into your existing Jenkins-based continuous integration process. The new Spoon plugin for Jenkins allows Jenkins to automatically build Spoon images and push them to the Spoon.net Hub or local repository.

Spoon.net is now continuously integrating popular web browsers, programming languages, servers, build tools, test frameworks, and other applications directly into the Spoon Hub!
