Klaros-Testmanagement version 3.7.9 released

We are pleased to announce the release of Klaros-Testmanagement version 3.7.9.

This release includes a major speedup for servers with large data sets, in particular for large numbers
of projects, or projects with large numbers of test cases or jobs. Java 7 is also officially supported as
of this release.

  • The XML Backup and Recovery function now includes more elements, like users who have contributed to the exported projects.

  • Test Cases may now be imported through an XML Import interface(see the manual for details).

  • The Print View function has been extended to more Klaros-Testmanagement artifacts.

  • Test Results may now be imported from the TestComplete result file format.

  • Jobs now show their overall Success Rate - the percentage of linked test runs which were completed with the result "Passed".



  • Test Results may be edited after test execution is complete. Test Results whose result field is changed will be marked as altered.



  • Custom Fields in Bugzilla, Mantis, Redmine and Trac are now supported.



  • Test Runs and Test Results are visible from the details page of their related objects.



Version 3.7.9 contains several bug fixes and improvements. Users are strongly recommended to update to this version.
