BuildMaster 4.7 Beta Released

Now before you upgrade, please note that ...

BuildMaster 4.7.0 is a beta release.

That said, our beta releases are quite stable (we use them internally), and we do support users who choose to upgrade sooner.

To install or upgrade, simply download BuildMaster and run the installer.

Make sure to check out the BuildMaster 4.7 Overview to learn what's in this beta, and what will be coming. Here are the specific items we changed in this beta:

  • BM-1815 - FIX: Possible race condition with installer may cause CLR20r3 error on launch
