Winter and TeamCity 6.0 Have Just Arrived

TeamCity build #15772 is named official 6.0 release and is already sitting in the downloads waiting to be installed on your servers.

What's New pretty much summarizes the major improvements over the previous releases.

We've added lots of new features and started exploring some of the new ones that we will be improving in the following releases. And we need your feedback for the right direction of the improvements. If you love the feature and want just a small improvement or find it unusable - don't forget to let us know.

I will note several not so prominent additions to this release, that can still deserve your attention.
These are mainly of interest to build engineers and TeamCity administrators:
  • Property completion lists (those available via an icon in text fields) now list properties that come from agents: you no longer need to consult agent pages when referencing a property. In the same mood, defining agent requirements dialog is now aware of available agent properties and their values.
  • Schedule build trigger got an option not to trigger if only specific changes are pending.
  • Snapshot dependencies can now enforce a build to be run on the same agent as the one it depends from.
  • Server Diagnostics got presets for debug logging, so for basic debugging tasks you no longer need to go hack log4j config file.
If you are interested in specific issues, you can browse all 6.0 fixed issues in our YouTrack installation. Are there any filed or voted by you? (Just add "created by:me" or "voted by:me" to the query string while being logged in.) My score is 259. What is yours?

Ready to go? Do not forget to review the upgrade notes before performing the upgrade.

Great news! :-)
I can't see that TC6 is now deployable through Glassfish.
Allowing Web Applications to share the same TCP Port (80) would be very nice instead of running all of them on different ports or machines.
I use YouTrack on Glassfish but TC is still missing.

Yes, TW-11275 for compatibility with GlassFish 3 is still open (and still related to open issue filed against GlassFish.

fibric,

Unfortunately, not yet.
You are referring to issue on GlassFish 2 support which was addressed in TeamCity 5.0. I just cross-linked it with TW-11275 recently.

Ohh. The JSP (pre)compilation bug is related to Glassfish2 so I thought it is resolved for Glassfish3 too. My fault.
