First of all, I’d like to thank all those people participating in AppVeyor beta and providing valuable feedback! You help moving the project further!

Today we released a new AppVeyor update which includes:

  • Login with GitHub
  • Selecting projects scope when authorizing with GitHub
  • MSBuild log saving and displaying
  • Project integration flow stability improvements

All these changes are immediately available!

Login with GitHub

It is now possible to sign up and login using GitHub account:

AppVeyor login with GitHub

AppVeyor uses OAuth authentication, so your GitHub account credentials are not stored in AppVeyor database.

Selecting projects scope when authorizing with GitHub

When adding a new project from GitHub you allow AppVeyor to access your GitHub repositories. It is now possible to select authorization scope: only public projects or public and private projects. This feature is a must for developers who are members of some organizations and not allowed to give outside access to their private repositories.

Connect GitHub/BitBucket

MSBuild log saving and displaying

Detailed MSBuild log is now saved for every build and can be downloaded from project version screen:


Project integration flow stability improvements

We performed a very serious back-end stabilization work and re-factored communication layer between AppVeyor application and build servers. Now communication pipeline is entirely built on Azure Service Bus to be reliable for critical business applications. No more hanging builds!
