xRM CI Framework for Dynamics CRM 2013 is now available
The xRM CI Framework is a set of tools that allows you to quickly and easily implement Continuous Integration for your Dynamics CRM solutions. This includes fully Automated Builds & Deployments.
Dynamics CRM 2013 has been recently released and come with lots of new exiting features and capabilities. These include an updated SDK. To compliment this release I have updated the xRM CI Toolkit to take advantage of these new capabilities. Hopefully this will allow you to put in these best practices and automation in place as you start your new Dynamics CRM 2013 projects.
Below is a list of updates from the CRM 2011 version:
- Support for Dynamics CRM 2013 Online/OnPremise
- Uses the latest Dynamics CRM 2013 SDK
- Compatibility with the new CRM Developer Toolkit for Dynamics CRM 2013
- Asynchronous Solution Imports (Check my other post here)
- Sample PowerShell Scripts
Check my previous post for a list of the CRM 2011 version features that are still supported in this release.
Watch out for more posts regarding the above new features and new releases. This will include compatibility and new features for Visual Studio and Team Foundation Server 2013.
Note that even this release you can use the existing automated build templates with TFS 2013. However at this point in time the CRM Developer Toolkit does not work with Visual Studio 2013.
Finally you can download the new Framework from the Visual Studio Gallery here.
