Jetbrains have released version 2 of their Collaboration and Continuous Build platform TeamCity, with a full complement of updated IDE plug-ins. Using their expertise garnered in the IDE/Plug-in space(with IntelliJ, Resharper),  With Teamcity, JetBrains  aim to bring the information delivered by the build/test/deploy stack into the IDE.

The ethos of earlier releases of TeamCity bought agile software development, integration, testing & release stack all into one product, including:
  • Continuous Integration & Testing
  • Build Management
  • Team Communication via IDE embedded Instant Messaging
  • Server-side Code Analysis
  • Code Coverage Analysis & Reporting
  •  Web-based Interface with Project Dashboard
  • Tight IDE Integration
  • Pre-tested (Delayed) Commit
  • Remote Run for Personal Builds
This new release has focused on improving on what has gone before with TeamCity 1.2. Specific improvements are:
  • An updated TeamCity Server – improving on the UI design, adding support for further VCS’s, which now include ClearCase, Subversion and Team Foundation Server. Functional additions include a command-line interface, project cloning, LDAP integration but to name a few.
  •  A new Eclipse plug-in, supporting personal builds, a view of builds triggered by the developer’s check-ins, offending code highlighting and code duplicate checking amongst others. 
  • Extended Visual Studio Plug-in functionality – including extended integration with MS Team Foundation Server, allowing the user to manage TFS specific tasks including check in policies and notes and TFS work items.
Jetbrains is offering an alternative platform to the standard Cruisecontrol stack, albeit with the configuration wrapped up in a web application. Where this product set differentiates itself is in the plug-in suites, with comparable functionality across all of the big name IDE’s across the big name platforms.   See also the TeamCity overview (pdf).
