Check What's Upcoming in TeamCity 9.0 before the Release: EAP2 (build 31717)

Sorry for the late announcement here, I was out of the office last two weeks visiting JavaOne and some of our customers in the Bay Area.

A new EAP build for the 9.0 code line was published last week.

Check the changes and give it a try on your test servers. We appreciate any feedback on the new features and how their current state applies to your scenarios. Your comments here, posts in the forum or email messages are welcome! Especially taking into account that we target 9.0 release for the end of November your feedback would be very useful at this time.

Looking through the summary of the last week's customer visits, the general product feedback is very positive. There is always room for improvement which we like to fill making TeamCity experience even more smooth and pleasant.
If you do not happen to be in direct contact with us - we are always open for your suggestions and ideas, so if you have thoughts to contribute - make sure to share and discuss those with us.

TeamCity 8.1.5: BugFix Update

Yet another bugfix update to the stable TeamCity version: 8.1.5 build 30240.

The release includes several performance improvements throughout the system and multiple fixes. You can get the full fixed issues list in our tracker.

As with all the other bugfix updates, this one does not change the data format, so upgrade should be easy and you can still rollback to other 8.1.x build if necessary.

Just get the build and follow the usual upgrade instructions.

P.S. TeamCity is not vulnerable to ShellShock exploit as it does not use the affected technologies.

P.P.S. If you happen to visit JavaOne in San Francisco next week, make sure to drop by JetBrains booth in the exhibition hall, say hi and ask your favorite TeamCity questions!

TeamCity 9.0 EAP is Open

We have published a EAP build corresponding to the current state of the TeamCity trunk development. This will become TeamCity 9.0 in a couple of months according to our current plans.

The code name for TeamCity 9.0 is Hajipur (which is an Indian city starting with H according to our convention).

A note on stability: we run the build on our internal JetBrains installation of TeamCity, but I would not recommend upgrading your production servers to the EAP build. Consider using a test server.

For the overview of the new functionality in this build check the release notes. We would be glad if you find time to try the build on your test servers and let us know what you think on the features and their implementation approach.
You can also get a full list of addressed issues in our issue tracker.

There are also a couple of topics we are working on, but which are not yet reached a state allowing to try them. These include ability to move projects between servers (including build history), performing daily cleanup completely in background, and some more. Also, there are several plugins in the works which are likely to be bundled soon. These include integration with VMware vSphere like that for Amazon EC2 and integration with Sonar.

The features announced in this EAP as well as the above-mentioned ones will form the core of the TeamCity 9.0 release and we will likely spend the rest of the time polishing them, with only some minor features additions.

What do you think on the proposed 9.0 feature set?

We are also preparing to publish first 9.0 EAP build soon, so if you like the cutting edge, plan for some time :)

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.
