We are pleased to announce the release of Klaros-Testmanagement version 4.2.8.

The 4.2.8 maintenance release fixes minor problems and improves initial test execution speed.

The 4.2.x release of Klaros-Testmanagement includes 12 new features, over 20 improvements and a large number of bugfixes over 4.1.x. Some of the most important changes are:

  • Significant improvements to overall performance
  • All areas of Klaros-Testmanagement, from list pages to the manual test runner to printer-friendly pages, have been optimized to create the fastest version yet.
  • Support for Java 8
  • The LDAP integration has been enhanced and now features additional options for naive DN match mode and referral handling. User mail and name attributes are now automatically retrieved and password synchronization is configurable.
  • User settings like the current selected project or iteration are now automatically saved and restored between user sessions.
  • Printer-friendly pages have been extended to users and mobile devices.
  • Print options have been expanded to allow suppression of empty fields and are also automatically saved and restored between user sessions.
  • Klaros-Testmanagement is now shipped with a tutorial which shows how to set up a basic example project.
  • Custom reports can now accept enumerations as parameters.



  • Objects within Klaros-Testmanagement may now be edited in bulk



  • The "copy test cases to project" option has been expanded to include requirements, test environments, systems under test and test suites. Relations between these objects are preserved during the copy action.



  • Traceability of test execution on mobile devices has been improved through linking individual test runs to the device on which they were executed.
  • The help button has been expanded to include links to the forum, tutorial and email support.
