Hot summer version: TeamCity 8.1.4 is here

Julia Alexandrova

Hello everyone!

I enviously hope the summer is treating you well and you are enjoying the bright sun with an ice-cold drink in hand while writing code on your laptop in the atmosphere of complete harmony and relaxation!

Why am I fantasizing that the grass is greener on your side of the fence? That’s because this summer is blazing hot for the TeamCity development team, but we are craving cold drinks: trying to set right any smallest defect of TeamCity 8.1 while simultaneously brewing the brand new TeamCity 9.0!

So, today we are rolling out a new update, TeamCity 8.1.4, with over 50 fixes and improvements in various areas; the notable ones are several performance fixes, the fix for the regression of database restore performance which surfaced in 8.1.3, and the problem with NuGet Feed authentication. As you may have noticed, TeamCity is getting more and more stable: the number of issues reported and fixed in build 30168 is considerably smaller than our usual 100+.

What else? The bundled DotCover version has been updated to 2.7, and there is more: check out our Release Notes for the complete list of the bits of awesomeness brought by this version!

Build 30168 uses the same database version as all TeamCity 8.1.x releases, so why not give it a try when you can downgrade at any moment to one of 8.1.x builds?

Download TeamCity 8.1.4 now and give us feedback on this version!

Stay tuned for the news on TeamCity 9.0 and savor the summer!

Happy building!

    We have recently installed a latest teamcity version 8.1.4. In installation directories I cant find that .BuildServer folder. I need to install octopus teamcity plugin which we usually put under this folder and its automatically picked up by teamcity once restarted. I tried putting the plugin zip under build-agent directory but it didn’t work. Any idea what I am missing here.

      Saba, you need to copy the zip archive with the plugin into the “TeamCity Data Directory/plugins” directory. To see the currently used data directory location, go to the Administration | Global Settings page for the running TeamCity server.

        Yes, found it. Now its changed as previously we can see a physical path but now have to upload the folder under that directory from browse option. Thank you very much.
