MSBuild Parallel Switch

I'm getting the following message when building my solution:

Building the projects in this solution one at a time. To enable parallel build, please add the "/m" switch.

It would be nice to have a setting in the appveyor.yml file to enable this switch instead of having to move everything over to a custom build script.

    It's been implemented. Will be deployed with the next update this week.

    That's awesome, thanks! Is there a way to set it from the appveyor.yml file? I couldn't find anything on the appveyor.yml reference page.

    Yeah, it's:


      parallel: true
