# Changelog for Teamscale 6.0

Newer Release Available

Our current release is available here


Check out the Release Newsletter for Teamscale 6.0.

Deprecated REST XML Interface

  • New: As of Teamscale 6.0, Teamscale's REST XML interface has been deprecated. Accordingly, any existing scripts should be migrated to the new public API.

Changed loading of configuration files and locating relative paths

  • New: As of Teamscale 6.0, all configuration files are loaded using the same logic. In particular configuration files in the process working directory take precedence over ones in the Teamscale installation.
  • New: Relative paths specified in configuration files will always be resolved to the working directory. The working directory usually equals the installation directory unless explicitly changed.
  • New: Custom check JAR files can be deployed in a directory relative to the working directory and installation directory.
  • Removed: Searching for a Teamscale configuration file teamscale-config.properties in the installation root directory. Use the file teamscale.properties in one of the config directories.
  • Removed: Searching for a license in the installation root directory or a directory specified by the Java system property teamscale.license.path is no longer supported. Use the environment variable TEAMSCALE_CONFIG to specify a separate configuration directory or pass the license using the TS_LICENSE environment variable if you cannot place the license in one of the config directories.
  • Removed: The administrative service to read and write configuration files via the Web API (config-files) has been removed.

Changed System Requirements
