TeamCity 7.1 Released: Feature Branches and More

The download page has just got an update to the official 7.1 release build (#23907).

If you were not following our EAP builds or want to get a round up, please review What's New  documentation page.

Thank you all who tried the EAP builds and posted issues into the tracker. Hope, the release fixes some you care about.

This version uses updated data structure comparing to 7.0.x versions, so make sure you create a backup before upgrade.
 For upgrading not-critical small installations, you can just install over and create a backup on the maintenance screen displayed on the first start of the upgraded version. For critical production installations, it is recommended to install a test server and only upgrade after checking important functionality in this new version.

Please also make sure to review Upgrade Notes for the list of changes which might affect your installation.

Our next plans are to release several 7.1.x updates based on your feedback and make up our minds on the next major release.

TeamCity EAP build #23892: 7.1 is Almost Here

We plan to release version 7.1 around next week, so this is really close: build 23892.

There are no major changes, just bug fixes and some polishing before the release. If you plan to upgrade to 7.1 when it will be released, it makes sense to try this EAP build to see how well it plays in your environment. In particular, if you plan to use the new feature branches support, make sure to try it out.

 If you encounter any critical issues, please let us know the details via teamcity-feedback at jetbrains.com so that we still have chance to address it.

Please note that this build does not have EAP license key bundled already. You can get evaluation key on the official download page.
