Earlier this week, CloudBees announced the immediate availability of the CloudBees Accelerator Visual Studio Integration v4.0 . For any user of CloudBees Accelerator in a Visual Stuio environment, this new release contains a number of significant usability and performance enhancing capabilities:
Visual Studio IDE Integration
Major modernization of the CloudBees Accelerator Visual Studio IDE integration, significantly enhancing configuration and usage for any developer looking to accelerate their Visual Studio based builds.
The Toolchain Virtualization feature allows CloudBees Accelerator to virtualize and distribute the Visual Studio toolchain from the build client, hence eliminating the need for agent-side configuration of the Visual Studio environment and dramatically simplifying initial setup of an CloudBees Accelerator deployment in a Visual Studio environment.
Improved default settings for enhanced performance out-of the box
For reference, below are a couple of screenshots from the new Visual Studio IDE Integration:
