TeamCity 8.1.1 bugfix release is here

Since we released TeamCity 8.1, we spent most of our time fixing critical bugs. We greatly appreciate your feedback and your patience, and we are happy to announce TeamCity 8.1.1 today!

Traditionally TeamCity bugfix releases do not modify the data format, and 8.1.1 is no exception. If after installing 8.1.1 you find some new problems (which is an unlikely case, but still), you can easily switch back to 8.1 without the need to restore data from backup.

8.1.1 fixes problems with working directory in Powershell runner introduced in 8.1, compatibility issues with JIRA, and about 70 other bugs.

It is important to mention that the experimental VSTest console runner is no longer bundled with TeamCity. But there is nothing to worry about if you started using it: the plugin is available as a separate download, please see the plugin page for details.

This bugfix release also comes with support for Nuget package discovery when creating a project from URL: TeamCity now detects .nuspec files and suggests using the Nuget pack build step.

We highly recommend upgrading to the new version. See TeamCity 8.1.1 Release Notes for the complete list of fixes, and download the new version now!

Happy Building!

    Having a very strange issue with our .NET 3.5 builds after the upgrade from 8.0.x to 8.1.1, it seems to “force” loading 64-bit DLL’s even though all project files and build steps are set to “x86” for the platform choice. It also seems to have set every build configuration to use .NET Framework 4.0.

    All my builds are failing, I am enabling debug logging on one of the agents and register an issue on the community forums :-\

    We reported a major (for us critical) issue back in September of 2013. Other users have experienced the same issue and have commented on our issue and linked to it from Stack Overflow. TeamCity inspections have not worked since upgrading to version 8.0. They worked flawlessly in versions 6 and 7, but since “upgrading” to version 8 they have never worked. The inspections run in Resharper in Visual Studio on the same code base work fine. It is just the inspection runner in TeamCity that is, and remains, totally and hopelessly broken. Version 8.1.1 is no better, and given the most recent responses we are even more discouraged.

    See http://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/TW-32346.

    I have and will continue to actively discourage other companies and developers from using TeamCity (or any JetBrains product, for that matter) because of the lack of support we have gotten on this major issue.

    The lack of support, responsiveness, and help from JetBrains has been shockingly disappointing.
