Major update to the ElectricAccelerator Visual Studio Integration

Earlier this week, Electric Cloud announced the immediate availability of the ElectricAccelerator Visual Studio Integration v4.0. For any user of ElectricAccelerator 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 ElectricAccelerator Visual Studio IDE integration, significantly enhancing configuration and usage for any developer looking to accelerate their Visual Studio based builds.
  • Toolchain Virtualization
    The Toolchain Virtualization feature allows ElectricAccelerator 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 ElectricAccelerator 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:
