Several important improvements and bug fixes have been made in project groups feature.
It is now possible to define external ID for build configuration or template. It works the same way as external ID for project, i.e. it is used in URLs instead of internal ID, and it is used in configuration files. However with build configuration external IDs add some additional benefits:
dep.<my build configuration external id>.build.number
http://<host>/repository/download/<my build configuration external id>/lastSuccessful/artifact.zip

We continue refactoring the way configuration files are stored on disk under TeamCity data directory. This EAP brings two important changes:
vcs-roots.xmlfile and move VCS root configuration to corresponding projects.
Dependencies progress has been added on queued build page, you can now see estimates for all dependencies in one place.
Disk usage report has become aware of projects hierarchy. You can see how much disk space is taken by the project as a whole, and also drill down to sub-projects and see what sub-project uses most of disk space.
Additionally, one more server health report is now provided based on disk usage. This report shows configurations with huge log files, as well as links to builds having these log files. Huge (hundreds of megabytes) build logs are rarely useful, it is hard to analyze them and in most of cases they just waste space on disk. We hope this report will help to find configurations that produce such log files and fix them.
VCS and Schedule trigger have got new setting: Branch filter. With the help of the new filter you can limit the set of branches where automatic triggering will be performed. Read more about branch filters in our documentation: Working with Feature Branches#Triggers
