Release Management Update 3 CTP1 is now available with DSC Deployment Feature!

We have just published the CTP1 for Visual Studio Release Management 2013 Update 3. You can download this release here and read through the KB article here.

With this update, you can use DSC (Desired State Configuration) to deploy apps to your environments. Using DSC, you can run Powershell scripts on target servers of an environment without having to install the deployment agent. You can deploy to both on-premise environments as well as Azure environments. A detailed walkthrough of using DSC to set up a release management template is provided in the attached tutorial document.


Note that this is a CTP, and is not go-live. Do not upgrade your Release management production servers to this version. So, go ahead and give this a try on your demo/trial machines, and let us know what you think.

Here are some useful links to get you going.

 Release with ease and fun in different environments!
