Hello, one and all!
Today I want you to take a peek behind the scenes of the TeamCity development process. Some time ago our team of superstars held the TeamCity plugin week which has by now become traditional. The period in-between releases seemed to be the perfect time for our developers to unleash their creativity and boy, they had a ball!
We hope to arouse your interest, but be warned: some of the plugins are pretty raw, in pre-alpha state, and PROVIDED “AS IS” WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND. Do not install them in production without testing!
Being given time to put their thoughts into lines of code, our developers went really wild, and came up with a number of ideas! Prepare yourselves for the unexpected!
We have a lot of votes for Sonar integration in our tracker. So please welcome the initial version of the Sonar plugin! The plugin comes with the Sonar build step and a simple user interface for configuring Sonar servers. More will be added based on your feedback!

The TeamCity Achievements plugin
A sense of humor is a sign of intelligence, and this plugin is indispensable for TeamCity as an intelligent Continuous Integration server! It’s all about challenging and motivating your developers: the plugin grants achievements to users for record numbers of various actions in the TeamCity web interface.
- You will be bestowed the proud name of a Saboteur for bombing (i.e. muting) several tests with automatic explosion (unmute) on a specific date
- Those disarming (unmuting) several tests, will be called brave Sappers
- You’ll see how many Novelists you have with this achievement granted to the code contributors for extra-long commit descriptions.
