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:
All these changes are immediately available!
It is now possible to sign up and login using GitHub account:
AppVeyor uses OAuth authentication, so your GitHub account credentials are not stored in AppVeyor database.
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.
Detailed MSBuild log is now saved for every build and can be downloaded from project version screen:
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!

After almost 5 months of active development AppVeyor reached another great milestone and I’m glad to present you AppVeyor Continuous Integration platform for .NET developers!

You can help us to make AppVeyor a great tool by providing feedback and suggestions. You can provide feedback by replying to this email and writing directly to me. You can start a new discussion on our community forums. You can vote for feature requests or add new ones on our UserVoice portal. We are still working on filling up our KB database, so expect new articles in the coming weeks.
AppVeyor is a cloud-based continuous integration and deployment platform for .NET developers. It provides a customizable project build pipeline with Get, Build, Test, Package and Deploy steps. Checkout AppVeyor overview article for more details about the platform.
First of all, we will be focusing on completing and polishing existing functionality and fixing bugs to make AppVeyor a great tool. Our next priority is deployment to Azure Cloud Services and Windows clusters. We plan to give a preview of this functionality by the end of July. After that we’ll start implementing NuGet support. I’m sure I’ll get great ideas for AppVeyor from you.
I hope you will enjoy using AppVeyor that could become a tool you can’t live without!
Have a great day and keep the app rolling!
