Prepare for April the 1st - try TeamCity Fools Day Plugin

Fools Day is close so if you would like to joke on your colleagues try TeamCity Fools Day plugin.
Please install it only if your organization can afford little disruption from the work as the plugin is a bit intrusive. Also, feel free to look into the code and tweak it.

The page has the version from the last year but it still works OK with TeamCity 5.0.3 (what a stable API :)

We might add something fresh to the plugin if we have time these days (our colleagues got a bit tired of the screen shooting last year), so watch for the plugin page updates.

TeamCity 5.1 EAP build #13215 is available

We are coming closer to 5.1 release (will hopefully happen in about month) and here is a new EAP build for you to try and let us know your feedback.

Some of the improvements that many existing TeamCity users will probably be interested in:
  • Ability to hide and reorder build configurations on the Overview page. After some discussions this is made a per-user setting that affects only the Overview (as an exception, the changed order is also used on My Changes page). If you try the feature, please let us know how well this suits your needs;
  • support for putting external database drive jars under .BuildServer/lib/jdbc directory. If you upgraded TeamCity in the past you probably know that the driver jars need to be added again after upgrade. So the feature is aimed to reduce necessity to patch existing TeamCity installation after upgrade;
  • HTML email notifications (and with the recent addition of advanced notification templates customization you can further extend the messages) ;
  • support for image files in the web file diff view: two images will be displayed side by side;
  • ability to add a comment for a build right on the build triggering - in the custom run build dialog;
  • and more.
The build is waiting for your download requests.

Do not forget to backup your existing data before upgrade.

Care to make TeamCity better? Do not stay silent, drop us a line.

TeamCity 5.0.3 Bugfix Update

While we are working on 5.1 release, some of the fixes seem important enough to be integrated into our 5.0.x branch. The number of fixes seems enough to release an update and we gladly do it today.

The update is recommended but is not mandatory, if you do not experience any issues with your TeamCity setup, you can skip the update.

Thank you all who reported issues and let us investigate and fix them.

Download the new verison and ... happy building!
