JetBrains Releases TeamCity 4.5

The distributed build management and continuous integration server from JetBrains gets a major feature update

Prague, Czech Republic, April 23, 2009 — JetBrains, the creators of intelligent, productivity-enhancing development tools, announced today the public availability of TeamCity 4.5, the company's award-winning distributed build management and continuous integration tool. With TeamCity, you can set up a build server for your projects within minutes and enjoy out of the box continuous unit testing, code quality analysis, and early reporting on build problems — even without leaving your favorite IDE. TeamCity offers a gentle learning curve, so you can quickly improve your release management practices by gradually adopting its advanced features and capabilities.

TeamCity has great scalability thanks to its Build Grid utilization. Its comprehensive yet intuitive web-based UI allows for easy build management and release engineering optimization. TeamCity has already been installed in hundreds of companies worldwide, expertly handling large-scale build infrastructures with up to 100 build agents and thousands of build configurations.

Thanks to an extremely wide range of integrations with the most popular IDEs, version control systems and build tools, as well as a Java API for further extensions, TeamCity immediately becomes the place to find all kinds of information about your projects — from their current status and health, to the detailed change history with metrics and statistical trends.

The latest release provides further user experience enhancements, brings many usability and administration improvements, and adds several in-demand enterprise-level features:

  • User Groups are now supported when defining user roles and notifications
  • Extended LDAP support with automatic user profile synchronization
  • Multiple UI improvements, including tests grouping and project-wide test details, problematic tests, and change log
  • You can now assign responsibility for broken builds
  • In addition to traditional test results handling, TeamCity is now able to parse raw XML reports from ANT's JUnit tasks, NUnit, Surefire, PMD, and FindBugs
  • Mono framework is now automatically detected and can be used as a .NET platform for continuous builds
  • Improved IDE integrations:
    • Eclipse: CVS is now supported for Remote Run and Pre-tested Commit; added support for Perforce plugin version 2008.2
    • Visual Studio: Remote Run and Pre-tested Commit now work with Perforce
