TeamCity 2017.2 is released!
We are thrilled to announce that TeamCity 2017.2 has been released today!
First of all, we’d like to thank all our users who helped us make the product better:
it really means a lot to know that you are willing to take time and report your success or problems, that you venture to try out our pre-release versions, that you are as excited about the new release as we are. We, the TeamCity team, really appreciate this.
Now let’s talk about the TeamCity licensing news: the TeamCity Professional license increased the number of build configurations, and instead of the 20 you are now entitled to 100 build configurations with our free version!
Why we decided to increase it? We believe that as projects and teams grow, they can get more and more benefit from TeamCity and take advantage of the features which are visible on larger-scale installations. For instance, with a limit of 20 build configurations, there is a little chance you’ll be able to put to full use such features as snapshot dependencies, Kotlin DSL, templates or even projects hierarchy. Not to mention that the modern trend towards microservices architectures also requires a larger number of different build configurations.
Next, this release is packed with new features; most of them have been already announced in our early access program for TeamCity 2017.2, so here is the summary:
- The built-in TeamСity-Docker integration is now available for agents on Mac, Linux, and Windows. The integration provides a number of features to facilitate working with Docker under TeamCity.
- Out-of-the-box support for .NET CLI: you can now build, test, and deploy .NET Core projects
- Aggregated results from several build configurations can be now obtained using Composite builds
- Deployment build configurations make it easier to deploy and redeploy the results of the builds such configurations depend on
- Easy TeamCity server upgrade with the new automatic update option
- and much more, including the improved UI.
The detailed description is available in the What’s New.
