TeamCity 7.1 EAP Opened: Problems Summary on Overview, VCS Browsing During Configuration and More

Today we open Early Access Program for upcoming TeamCity 7.1.
Current plans for 7.1 release are mid-summer.

Apart from usual (and many) fixes and improvements we plan to do more in the areas of Investigations, Build Problems and Feature Branches for distributed version controls. This EAP release shows our progress so far.

Check the release notes or the entire fixed issues list.
We run the version on our internal server so it should be stable at least in some environments. However, please do not upgrade your production server with the version since no downgrade is possible from it to 7.0.x versions.

This being said we would appreciate any feedback on the introduced features or improvements as it can help us detect issues early and improve the upcoming release based on your comments.

And yes, the EAP download page is the usual one.

TeamCity 7.0.2 Bugfix, Xcode Runner Plugin Preview

Last week we have released a new bugfix update: 7.0.2 build 21349 mostly to address recently uncovered issues occurring in some installations. Upgrade is recommended for all users. This release still uses the same data structure as 7.0 and 7.0.1, so downgrade to the versions is possible, if necessary.

An unrelated, but noteworthy is also an initial version of Xcode runner that we have recently published.
It is meant to help build Mac OS X and iOS projects in TeamCity.

It's been a while since several third-party plugins were available for the purpose ([1][2]). We greatly appreciate the effort of the authors and thank them for helping TeamCity users with Xcode builds.

Now we want to make Xcode builds first-class citizens in TeamCity and bundle the functionality into TeamCity distribution with one of our next releases. If you use Xcode for your development it would be great if you try the plugin and let us know how it suits your needs, what should be added, etc.
