Did circle.yml format change today?


I suddenly had builds fail with

executorType isn't an allowed key


Once I removed the executorType, which was needed yesterday, it started building again. Is there a good place to see changes to the file format? Should I be watching the github docs repo for that?


I’m not aware of any backwards incompatible changes being made recently. That said, we’re encouraging all early Beta users to update their config to the new style with a .circleci directory containing a config.yml file:


Hi @bhoggard,

Thanks for reporting this.

We investigated internally and this should not have happened. Can you please point me to your build to investigate further. Feel free to DM me if that works better for sharing sensitive info.
