As we approaching to TeamCity 7.1 release which is planned for the end of July, beginning of August, we concentrate our efforts on polishing new features and bugfixing. This EAP build does not have many new features besides some significant improvements in feature branches.

Feature branches

We've improved a lot in this area.

Extended branches specification syntax

In previous EAP you could use * in branch specification, like this:

This rule works well, but what to do if you can't use * but still want shortened branchy labels in builds? To address this problem we extended syntax of branch specification and now it allows this:


In this case TeamCity will use label 7.0 for builds from refs/heads/release-7.0 branch and 7.1 for builds from refs/heads/release-7.1.

Branchy labels for builds from default branch

In a build configuration with branches enabled, TeamCity will assign branchy label to builds from default branch too.
