Unable to find an easy way to deploy an old build version.

At one point, the build version use to be part of the url, which made it easy for anyone to deploy an old build version in case they wanted to check a functionality quick.

For e.g. If my latest develop build version is 3.13.0.10800 and I wanted to deploy an old build 3.12.0.10100, now there is no easy way to find that build other than loading all the builds until you reach that old build.

Please fix this so we can use the url again to deploy an old build.

    Hi Chinmay,

    This change was made to this this issue and will stay. However old style URLs continue to work. You still should be able to open it with URL like this:

    https://ci.appveyor.com/project/<account>/<project_slug>/build/<build_version>

    Difference in current URL and olde URL is ending:
    current: builds/<build_id>
    new: build/<build_version>

    Hello Ilya,

    Thanks for the prompt response. I think for now I can use the url the way you suggested in your response. (On a side note, the hyperlink is broken and is not taking me to the issue that this change was made against).

    Additionally, I also wanted to highlight that there is no way to search or filter on the History. Can you shed some light on whether you guys plan on having that feature anytime soon? Being a QA the search field would be EXTREMELY helpful to us in finding the build that we are looking for to deploy.

    Have a good one!

    Sorry, here is correct link: https://github.com/appveyor/ci/issues/1074

    We plan to add branches and tags filters to the history page. What else do you think will help?
