TeamCity is getting ready to release the next version and today we are giving you our last early access program build for TeamCity 2018.2.
Jaipur 2018.2 EAP3 presents several new features:
- VCS polling node for TeamCity server. As one more step aimed at scalability, TeamCity now allows starting a secondary node, which can either work as a read-only server (by default) or poll VCS repositories for changes, if the administrator enables this activity for this node on the main TeamCity server. You can use this to expand your TeamCity cluster, which until now could comprise the main server, a running builds node, and a read-only node for disaster recovery.
- Additional test data. You can now use service messages to report additional data for a test run in TeamCity, such as extra screenshots, logs, numeric values, etc., which will be displayed in the TeamCity Web UI.
- Automatic assignment of investigations. The bundled Investigations Auto Assigner plugin automatically assigns investigations for a build failure to a user on the basis of several heuristics. Please see our documentation for details.
Jaipur 2018.2 EAP3 fixes over 60 issues, and the full list is available in our Release notes.
Remember to install this build on a trial server! This is not a production-ready version of TeamCity, as it changes the TeamCity data format and downgrading is not supported.
As with any EAP version, this one comes with a 60-day Enterprise evaluation license for an unlimited number of agents and build configurations.
