We are pleased to announce the release of Klaros-Testmanagement version 4.4.3.

This is a hot-fix release that fixes performance problems introduced in release 4.4.2.

The 4.4.x release of Klaros-Testmanagement focuses on issue management system and requirements management system integration and includes more than 8 new features as well as 29 improvements and bugfixes over 4.3.x.

Some of the highlights are:

Synchronization of requirements from remote requirements management systems

Instead of duplicating existing requirement definitions by hand, you can now synchronize with an external JIRA project. Custom JIRA-fields are supported as well as file attachments are! You can even freely choose how to link fields between Klaros-Testmanagement and JIRA.

Support for Jira 7 and Jira Studio REST API

From JIRA 7.0 onwards (resp. 6.0 if you're using Atlassian Cloud), two of JIRAs remote APIs (XML-RPC and SOAP) are being discontinued. Klaros-Testmanagement now additionally supports JIRAs REST-API, which is available since JIRA 4.3.

Support for GitHub Issue Trackers

In addition to Bugzilla, Jira, Mantis, Redmine and Trac, the integrated Issue Tracker of GitHub is now also supported for remote issue tracking.

REST-API for Klaros-Testmanagement

The Enterprise Edition of Klaros-Testmanagement now ships with a RESTful API supporting JSON and XML formats that enables developers and users to read data from Klaros using HTTP Requests.

Customizable Reports for Issues and Jobs

Additional customizable report templates have been added to show a clear and precise reference of your current project status regarding issues to be resolved and your current job schedule.
Each of these predefined reports can be enhanced and adapted to your needs using the built-in custom report editor.

Support for additional test result formats

GoogleTest, TESSY, JsUnit, JBehave, gtester and embUnit join our constantly expanded list of supported automated test tools.

Dynamic Text parameter substitutions

It is now possible to show user defined property values during manual test execution! For example, if you write %sut:build-number% in the description of the test case, it will show the build number of the system under test the executing user is testing on instead!

Extended category filtering

You can now filter for test case and test suite categories while you're creating jobs from test cases or test suites
