We are pleased to announce the release of Klaros-Testmanagement version 4.8.4.

This hotfix release adds 11 improvements and 32 stability fixes. It contains major improvements for the job and test suite result list pages and fixes problems with Jira requirement synchronisation and other minor issues.

The 4.8 release introduces reusable test step segments and the ability to share test cases and test suites across project boundaries as well as adding support for UFT/QTP test automation results (HPE Unified Functional Testing / HP QuickTest Professional).

Share test cases and test suites across project boundaries

Test cases can now be managed and maintained centrally in one project and shared across several different test projects. The changes to the source test cases can be selectively synchronized in the participating projects.

Reusable test step segments

A test case usually consists of several test steps that are processed in sequence. To avoid redundancy when entering test steps for each test case, common test steps can now be combined into test segments. These are now managed as additional elements in test projects.

Detailed test step change history

The test case history has been extended by further information, and the changes to the individual test steps can be displayed in more detail.

Extended categorization view

For categorized objects, the categorization information is now directly visible and changeable on the related objects.

Support for UFT/QTP test automation results (HPE Unified Functional Testing / HP QuickTest Professional

Test results from Unified Functional Testing (UFT) / Quick Test Professional (QTP) can now be imported and further processed.
