TeamCity 9.1 release: truly historical and very personal builds

Greetings everyone!

So here it comes – after half a year and over 500 fixes since version 9.0 was released, despite being a minor version, TeamCity 9.1 brings you major improvements!

The new build is coming out with significantly enhanced capabilities to store the project settings in the VCS: now the settings in your build can be different from those currently on the TeamCity server, which means that you can:

  • run true historical builds: use a particular revision of the source code and run a build with the corresponding project settings
  • store different settings in different branches, and run a build in a particular branch with the settings from this branch
  • change project settings in your IDE, and run a personal build/pre-tested commit with these custom settings.

Good news for .Net developers – this release brings enhanced .NET tools support:

  • anticipating the upcoming release of Visual Studio 2015, TeamCity already supports the latest versions of the tools in the Visual Studio 2015 lineup
  • Windows PowerShell 5.0 is also supported
  • the new Visual Studio Tests runner integrates the MSTest and VSTest runners
  • Mutual support between TeamCity and NUnit 3.0 guarantees compatibility of NUnit and TeamCity future releases.

As with every release, we were busy with UI improvements, and one of the most noticeable is probably ANSI-coloring support in our build log, which presents endless possibilities for those with artistic aptitude: buildLogArty

For the full list of new features and fixes see our What’s New on the product web site and our documentation.

Happy building!

    Great news, guys!
    Could you please tell a little bit more about ANSI Colors? I’ve checked your wiki, but there was not much info about it.
    Does this feature support all possibilities of standard escape sequences? Here is good demonstration page: http://misc.flogisoft.com/bash/tip_colors_and_formatting.
    Also it would be great to see some examples.

    Thank you for excellent work 🙂

      It should work, we also use Ansible inside JetBrains.
      Please open a thread in our forum, and provide details: OS, versions, a screenshot of build step settings.

    Thats great news. Will the 9.1 version add support for adding TFS as a VCS when TeamCity server is running on a Mac?

    This question was answered for me in the Jetbrains community.
    “No, TFS integration with Unix based OS is ot implemented in 9.1. If you use TFS we would recommend to choose Windows OS to install TeamCity server.
