Continuous Delivery is the ability to quickly deploy high quality software changes to production. It takes the lessons from Lean Manufacturing and applies them to software development and delivery. Continuous Delivery aims to reduce the amount of in progress work by ensuring that the code is always releasable.
The definition of "done" is "deployed to production" rather than "coding finished". Continuous Delivery starts with Continuous Integration and adds practices to automate deployment and acceptance testing while still requiring manual exploratory testing of new features. These practices reduce the manual overhead associated with software deployment and increase the software quality.
