(Bamboo Cloud) Can I use msbuild 2013 in a build job?

Hello we are using Bamboo Cloud.


I don't see the msbuild 2013 option in the msbuild dropdown selection in our msbuild task.  We need to build a project with Visual Studio 2013, and soon 2015.  

Currently we are using VS 2012 and msbuild 4.0 without issues.

I am afraid we have to create own EC2 image sad I think the Bamboo Windows image should contain the newest .NET and MSBuild always, the older versions are optional, since these tools maintain backward compatibility. Also, the nuget.exe would be handy, too (despite it is simple to download).

Comparing rich support of the Java tools in the Windows image, the .NET support seems very poor.
