TeamCity 4.0 (Calcutta) Roadmap

Let us share the plans for the next TeamCity version.

We have quite a big pool of ideas and requests to choose from, so here goes their compilation that we feel we can approach with the next release:

http://www.jetbrains.net/confluence/display/TW/Calcutta+Roadmap

It is meant to serve as guidance and does not include all the minor enhancements we plan to introduce.

If you have your personal "must add/fix" list, please ensure it is filed into our tracker and received some votes. We will do our best to fix as many of those as we can.

If you have suggestions for other big features, do not hesitate to let us know about them so we can turn then into reality one day.


We would appreciate if you could voice your opinion on the list, so we can adjust our route to provide the most relevant features earlier in the course of ongoing EAP.


Happy building,
The JetBrains TeamCity Team

Hello Yegor & team,
Thanks for posting the roadmap, it's very helpful for us. You asked for
opinions on the list: here's mine.

These features will be very useful for us if they work correctly:
- Flaky tests marking
- Take Responsibility Improvements (esp. per-problem responsibility)
- Per-failure builds analyzing approach

I will be intrigued to try out these features to see if we can get any
value from them:
- Team changes tracking
- Comments
- Tests reordering/selection
- Build promotion

I don't care at all about:
- .Net frameworks integration improvements
- Improve Eclipse plugin

Looking forward to the next cycle!

Very nice. Especially nice to seem my suggestions for build promotion and team changes tracking are getting some love. I think those will be both very useful and good product differentiators. History builds will also make our lives a lot easier. More EAP releases, please!

The composite build stuff is going to be truly amazing. I can't wait for it!

You guys (and TeamCity) rock!

Is the 4.x version going to use the same licensing model?

(Please say yes)

Hi Yegor,

Looks like a good roadmap, but since you asked for suggestions...

Something I've run into a lot of times is requests for a consolidated set of changes between 2 patches or releases.
This was raised as a request as TW-930 and TW-2646.

Is there any chance of such functionality becoming reality anytime soon?

Regards,

Maarten

I'm quite sure this is already somewhere in Tracker, but I really miss a fulltext search to quickly lookup e.g. all builds with changes related to a specific JIRA-item. Other than that the roadmap sounds very good!

Has a decision been made as to whether TeamCity 4.0 will be a free upgrade from TeamCity 3.x yet?

Thanks,

Dave,

Sorry, no decision yet. It probably will not be decided upon until rather close to the release.
You know, we want to reserve some room for manoeuvre.

And... some day (maybe not this release) the upgrades will become not free just to let us keep the pace in improving TeamCity. At any rate, I hope the new features in the releases will overweight the upgrade cost.

Dan,

Most probably the licensing will stay as it is for 3.x. Some features can go into Enterprise edition only, but we are not inclined to greatly limit Professional edition in features.

Hi Yegor,

Thanks for the roadmap and keeing your development open to the outside world! It's a great way to attract new customers and keep the old ones.

Composite builds and enhanced build dependencies are my most wanted features (voted in the tracker). I would also love to see an ability to start remote run and pretested commit from command line (filed as TW-5248). We do not use any IDEs that support those features via plugins that come with TC, but would get a lot of benefits from being able to test changes prior to committing them if we can talk to TC via command line.

Keep up the good work!

Best regards,
Oleg.

I am really looking forward for better .NET integration. I would especially like to see integration with NUnitCover to be able to see code coverage reports. I know that you can do it even today but it doesn't feel like a first-class citizen.

Thank you,
David.
