We are using .NET 4.6 and C# 6.0 new features in out project, but it seems that this is not supported with VS2015 Preview nor CTP while it was compiling just fine before. Is there something new we have to configure to use these features?

error CS1519: Invalid token ';' in class, struct, or interface member declaration

for this line

public bool IsDirty => this.isDirty;

    Nothing has been changed on Visual Studio 2015 CTP image. When did it stop working?

    How about Preview? We did have some problems with CTP on our local machines so we rolled back to Preview (problems were with C++ project, not with C# like this is tough)

    As of when did it stop to work, I'm not sure, i had number of builds that failed due to wrong branch being pulled (local branch) of one of submodules.

    Today i got it right, pushed new data and now I get this error.

    Build: https://ci.appveyor.com/project/AleksandarDev/sparkiy-client/build/...
    Source: https://github.com/Sparkiy/sparkiy-client/tree/edge
    Error on file ExtendedViewModel.cs source:

    These error does seem like only from not supporting new C# syntax. Project has correctly set targeted framework to 4.6

    Builds file locally.

    "Preview" image has gone and now it's just redirect to "CTP".

    Looking at your build log I've noticed that you use msbuild from PATH which is MSBuild 12.0:

    msbuild "C:\projects\sparkiy-client\SparkiyClient\SparkiyClient\SparkiyClient.Windows\SparkiyClient.Windows.csproj" /m /verbosity:minimal /logger:"C:\Program Files\AppVeyor\BuildAgent\Appveyor.MSBuildLogger.dll"
    Microsoft (R) Build Engine version 12.0.31101.0
    [Microsoft .NET Framework, version 4.0.30319.0]

    But you need MSBuild 14.0, right?

    So was 14 set by default before? Did CTP change that?

    Maybe Preview was changing PATH, but apparently CTP didn't.

    Yep, that was it. Just like mentioned on your blog post http://blog.appveyor.com/blog/2015/01/20/visual-studio-2015-ctp-image
    (I now get c++ error like we did locally with CTP, I hope I'll manage to solve that one soon)

    Thanks for great support, as always!

    In future you should send email notifications when image gets deprecated.
