We are happy to announce the availability of Klaros-Testmanagement 5.0.0.

With the switch to PrimeFaces as the underlying front end technology, the user interface underwent a complete revamp.

In addition to the modern and more attractive look, the usability and convenience has been improved.
In reporting, a lot of new functionality has been added to the dashboard. The included customizable report templates were redesigned and new ones have been added. Database access has been completely revised and has been significantly accelerated especially for writing and batch operations.
