We are happy to announce the new beta version 1.0.2 of our upcoming test case management software TestRail. Besides adding dozens of bug fixes, improvements and smaller features, this new beta release includes the first version of the test plan and configuration support we recently discussed on this blog. You can view a list of all changes in our announcement forum.
Test Plans and Configurations
The new support for test plans and configurations makes it a lot easier to run your test suites and cases against multiple configurations such as web browsers, operating systems or hardware platforms. Additionally, test plans allow you to start multiple test runs at once and makes it easy to organize related runs into groups.
We are still looking into making a few smaller changes to this feature, so please let us know what you think by providing feedback in the beta forum or by contacting us.
Upgrading to the new version
To update your TestRail beta installation, please download the new version from your private beta link and follow the upgrade instructions. TestRail is updated by copying the new installation files over your existing TestRail installation. The database upgrade wizard is automatically started when you access TestRail with your web browser. If you haven’t applied for the TestRail beta yet, feel free to do so as we are still looking for new beta participants.
In the next phase of the TestRail beta we plan to improve the application structure where needed and make it easier to work with test suites and cases. We plan a range of improvements in this area so stay tuned! If you are looking for any particular change in handling test suites and cases (such as linking/copying/organizing) and haven’t provided feedback yet, please let us know.
