TeamCity 8.1.2: More Stable and a Bit Faster

Here is a new stable build for your servers. It includes lots of fixes and some performance improvements as well as update of the bundled JetBrains tools. Some of the issues fixed can influence the entire server, so update is recommended.

As already usual with bugfix updates, you can upgrade/downgrade within any the 8.1.x TeamCity versions without data format conversions.

Check the upgrade notes and download the build.

We start to switch our main efforts to the development of TeamCity 9.0 with only critical fixes being integrated for 8.1.x versions. The final focus of 9.0 is still in the works, but likely we will work on improving experience of managing large servers and will add some often requested features. If you have any "favorite" direction you would love TeamCity to go into, you are welcome to post your thoughts in the comments.

TeamCity 8.1.1: BugFix Update

This build #29939 is a bugfix update for the recently released TeamCity 8.1. It comes with almost 80 different fixes for both issues introduced in 8.1 and long-standing ones.

Check the upgrade notes and get the build.

This update uses the same data format as 8.1, so you can downgrade to 8.1 if you feel the need.
Also, the upgrade is free for those who runs 8.1 (maintenance period of the licenses covers 12 February 2014 - 8.1 release date)

We will continue to release bugfix updates as issues uncover but our main effort is getting switched to TeamCity v.next which we plan to release to the end of the year.

Next week the team will spend some time in discussions about new features and directions we will pursue. Since these will partially be held offline, we might delay with the answers in support email. Hope you understand.

TeamCity 8.1 is Out: Easier Setup, Automatic Merge and Much More

So here it comes: the final TeamCity 8.1 with loads of new features, many fixes and performance improvements is ready for your production TeamCity servers.

Here you will find much simplified setup which includes creating projects from a single VCS URL, auto-discovery of the build steps and other suggested settings. Sure you will have great ideas on adding more "magic" to the configuration process - make sure to let us know your suggestions.

Automatic Merge for Git and Mercurial (a peer to pre-tested commit for non-DVCS) will prove useful for your DVCS needs.

Read through the complete list of the features added and get ready for the upgrade!

This version does change the data format, so make sure you create a backup before upgrading.

Let it build!

TeamCity 8.1 EAP Build #29790: Build Artifacts, Backup/Restore Improvements and More

We are targeting 8.1 release for February, so here is one of the last EAP builds before the release. It includes several new features like ability to configure build artifacts via selecting paths in UI, improved backup and restore performance and more. For a full list of fixed issues, check the tracker.

This version comes with a bundled EAP license key which will be removed in one of the next public builds, so it's a good chance to get a build and use it for several months without build configurations or agents limitations before deciding to upgrade the licenses.

Get to the download and do not forget to report any found issues to us via the forum or the issue tracker.

TeamCity 8.0.6 BugFix Update

Here is a new update for the stable TeamCity versions: 8.0.6 is ready for download with the latest fixes included.

Most notably, full support for Visual Studio 2013 and ReSharper 8.1 is now included out of the box. The version also contains several important performance improvements, so upgrade is recommended.

TeamCity 8.0.6 still uses the same database format as other 8.0.x versions, so you can upgrade/downgrade between the versions.

This might be the last update for 8.0.x versions as we plan to release 8.1 in February. It might be a good time to prepare for the upgrade to 8.1 and try 8.1 EAP to see how it works in your environment.

Check the release notes for complete overview of the new features.

If you plan to upgrade to 8.1 when it becomes available, consider getting this EAP build to evaluate the features and let us know your feedback so that we can still incorporate it into the release.

The forum and the issue tracker are at your disposal!
