TeamCity has already received wide recognition with its breakthrough capabilities such as Build Grid with simultaneous multi-platform testing, Remote run, Pre-tested Commit, and other teamwork and productivity tools. Many companies have adopted it as a tool that helps easily introduce agile practices into everyday team work. The new release builds on this success and covers new ground with many new features and improvements in existing functionality.

At the same time, small and medium-size development teams now benefit from the completely redesigned licensing scheme which makes TeamCity's innovative productivity- and quality-enhancing features available at no cost. Two editions - Professional (free) and Enterprise - are now available to meet the specific needs of smaller and larger teams and projects.

This means that TeamCity, like no other tool, allows any small or middle-size Java or .NET team to immediately raise code quality to an unsurpassed level, improve team collaboration and significantly speed up the development process."
