TeamCity offers easy setup and delivers out-of-the-box
continuous unit testing, sophisticated code quality analysis, and early
reporting on build problems. It has a gentle learning curve, so you can
quickly improve your release management practices by gradually adopting its
advanced features and capabilities.

"Every day we meet more and more customers with large build
infrastructures and very high environmental diversity," - says Pavel Sher,
TeamCity Project Manager. "There is definitely a strong demand for an
extremely scalable, robust, and ready continuous integration solution - and
that's exactly what the latest TeamCity release is designed to provide. At
the same time, we're still going strong with end-user features for
developers, and were able to add a great deal of usability improvements and
an enhanced user experience."

TeamCity 5.0 brings a huge potential improvement in
scalability by reinforcing its distributed build grid with Amazon EC2 cloud
integration. Features such as build configuration templates, project
archiving, and backup&restore eliminate unnecessary redundancy and hassle in
configuring large build infrastructures. To make TeamCity feel at home
everywhere and benefit developer productivity, we've added issue tracker
integration, better support for Maven, Command line tool for personal builds,
and many other features.

Key features in this release include:

    - Suport for Amazon EC2: Take advantage of cloud computing with
      TeamCity by putting build agents on Amazon EC2 cloud with on-demand
      image starting and on-idle stopping.
    - Issue tracker integration with JetBrains YouTrack, JIRA and
      Bugzilla out of the box, plus an API for the integration plugins for
      other systems.
    - Maven support improvements, including simplified build
      configuration creation from POM file, and build triggering on Maven
      artifacts change.
    - Build configuration templates for eliminating redundancy in build
      configurations settings.
    - Project archiving for putting no-longer-active projects out of
    - Command line tool for running Personal builds on server without
      IDE integration.
    - Backup & Restore added to simplify TeamCity maintenance, and the
      migration tool re-implemented.

Other improvements include:

    - Now you can view the status of a change across all build
      configurations on a single page.
    - Failure responsibility feature has been advanced to cover not
      only builds, but also individual test failures.
    - Various actions made by TeamCity users are now stored in the
      Audit log which can be browsed from the web UI.
    - Code coverage analysis has been significantly improved for both
      Java (based on IntelliJ IDEA coverage engine) and .NET (support for
      NCover and PartCover).
    - And many more.

Additionally, TeamCity 5.0 extends existing integrations and brings
several new ones:

    - Git & Mercurial support are now bundled with TeamCity.
    - Remote Run now works for Git from IntelliJ IDEA & Eclipse.
    - New support for Cucumber, Shoulda, Test-Spec in Rake runner.
