Gurock Software announced the availability of TestRail Hosted, a new SaaS and cloud-based edition of their web-based test management software. TestRail helps software development teams and QA departments to efficiently manage, track and organize their software testing efforts.

One of TestRail's unique features is that customers can install the software on their own servers, either online or on their private network behind a firewall. According to Gurock the installed edition is a very popular choice for teams that have access to their own IT infrastructure. As SaaS and cloud-based options become more popular, Gurock Software just announced and introduced a SaaS offering of their test management tool.

TestRail Hosted is maintained and hosted directly by Gurock Software on high-performance servers in professional data centers. TestRail Hosted comes with automated updates, hosting of the software and full support. Another difference is that TestRail Hosted comes with a low monthly subscription fee instead of an up-front licensing fee, making it the perfect choice for teams with smaller budgets.

TestRail is installed directly on a customer's server or can be hosted online. The software is available for purchase for $239 per user, or $25 per user per month, with additional discounts available for multi-user packs. A free fully-functional trial of TestRail (either hosted or downloaded) and an extensive product tour can be found on Gurock's website.

Gurock Software announced the release of TestRail 2.4, a new version of their web-based test management software. TestRail helps software development teams and QA departments to efficiently manage, track and organize their software testing efforts. TestRail 2.4 comes with support for UI Scripts (a powerful way to customize the user interface), time zones, full Mantis integration and many other improvements.

TestRail's new UI Scripts allow teams to customize TestRail's user interface with simple JavaScript code and style sheet definitions. UI Scripts are especially useful to adjust TestRail to the needs of customers, to optimize the application for custom workflows and to build integrations with internal or external third-party tools. Combined with custom fields, defect plugins and its single sign-on integration, UI Scripts make TestRail one of the most flexible test management applications available.

TestRail 2.4 also introduces full support for time zones. As more and more teams are distributed and work in different time zones, this new feature allows team members to use a different time zone setting in order to track test results, review comments and run reports with their local time.

The defect and bug tracker integration has always been a unique part of TestRail's feature set and many teams use TestRail together with well-known bug tracking tools such as JIRA, Bugzilla or Trac. The new TestRail release introduces a defect plugin for the popular Mantis bug tracking system, resulting in improved integration between both tools. It's now possible to directly push bug reports to Mantis from TestRail as testers find issues, and to look up the status of reported bugs without having to leave the application.

The new version also comes with many other enhancements and improvements. It's now easier to work with many projects simultaneously thanks to the improved dashboard view, to use additional placeholders for custom defect tracker integrations, and to use links to local or shared files in TestRail's text fields.

TestRail is installed directly on a customer's server or can be hosted online. The software is available for purchase for $239 (US) per user, with additional discounts available for multi-user packs. A free fully-functional trial of TestRail (either hosted or downloaded) and an extensive product tour can be found on Gurock's website.

Gurock Software announced the release of TestRail 2.3, a new version of their web-based test management tool. TestRail helps software development teams and QA departments to efficiently manage, track and organize their software testing efforts. TestRail 2.3 comes with major scalability and performance improvements for large teams and introduces new optimized views for test suites and test runs among many other improvements.

With more than 60+ changes, improvements and bug fixes, TestRail 2.3 is the biggest update of the product since the release of TestRail 2.0. The new version comes with alternative views for the test suite and run pages that make it easier to work with larger numbers of test cases. An optimized user interface with a new section tree simplifies navigating and organizing test suites and rearranging test cases and sections via drag&drop.

Especially larger teams and teams with many test cases also benefit from performance and scalability improvements introduced in the new version. Numerous database optimizations, algorithm changes and user interface improvements make TestRail lightning fast even for larger enterprise teams. TestRail 2.3 also features an improved Todo page to work with assigned tests. The improved Todo page makes it easier to work with many test assignments, and working with multiple test runs, milestones and test plans at the same time has been simplified.

The new version also comes with many other new features and improved support for third-party tools. TestRail 2.3 now supports Internet Explorer 9 and also comes with a new defect plugin for Axosoft OnTime to directly push and look up issues and bug reports. Other improvements include optimized Excel exports, easier attachment backups and a new way to customize the subjects of email notifications.

TestRail is installed directly on a customer's server or can be hosted online with most hosting providers. The software can be purchased for $239 (US) per user, with additional discounts available for multi-user packs. A free fully-functional trial of TestRail (either hosted or downloaded) and an extensive product tour can be found on Gurock's website.

Gurock Software announced the release of TestRail 2.2, a new version of their web-based test management software. TestRail helps software development teams and QA departments to efficiently manage, track and organize their software testing efforts. TestRail 2.2 introduces improved issue tracker integration and comes with full support for Jira, FogBugz, Bugzilla and other tools.

The new TestRail release makes it easier to work with bug and issue tracking tools and integrates the test management software with popular third-party applications. While TestRail can already be integrated with almost any web-based bug tracking and project management solution, the new defect plugins improve the work flow of testers considerably as they don't need to leave the application to accomplish common tasks. TestRail 2.2 ships with ready-to-use defect plugins for Jira, FogBugz, Bugzilla, Trac, YouTrack and Gemini.

The improved integration support allows testers to push bug reports from TestRail to third-party issue tracking tools while reusing the entered test results and test case details. Testers can now also look up bug reports, issue details and defect statuses in TestRail without having to access the bug tracking tool. TestRail's defect plugins make use of issue trackers' APIs to implement a sophisticated and customizable integration. Gurock plans to offer defect plugins for additional third-party applications in the future and customers can build their own scripts to integrate custom solutions.

TestRail is installed directly on a customer's server or can be hosted online with most hosting providers. The software can be purchased for $239 (US) per user, with additional discounts available for multi-user packs. A free fully-functional trial of TestRail (either hosted or downloaded) and an extensive product tour can be found on Gurock's website.

Gurock Software announced the release of TestRail 2.1, a new version of their web-based test management software. TestRail 2.1 introduces major new features such as improved time tracking, scheduling and time forecasting, new progress reports and integration with requirement management tools. TestRail is used by software development teams and QA departments to manage, track and organize their software testing efforts.

The new TestRail release makes it easier to enter estimates, track actual test times and to ensure that teams are on track with their release schedule. TestRail's new sophisticated forecasting algorithm uses entered estimates, historical test times and averages to calculate projected completion dates for software tests, allowing project leads to make adjustments to plans early if it becomes necessary. New progress reports and burn down charts help team members stay up to date on the latest project changes.

Integrating TestRail with other tools such as issue & defect tracking tools, automated test systems and requirement management tools has always been a top priority of the TestRail team. The new built-in References field allows testers to link test cases to requirements, user stories, specifications and issues stored in external systems, resulting in an improved workflow for testers, developers and managers. Other changes introduced with TestRail 2.1 include various report enhancements, scalability improvements and better search capabilities.

TestRail is installed directly on your own server or can be hosted online with most hosting providers. A free fully-functional trial of TestRail (either hosted or downloaded) and an extensive product tour can be found on Gurock's website. Please see the announcement for all details about the new product version.

Hello,

We are happy to announce an offer to provide free licenses of our web-based test management software TestRail to open source projects and teams. As more and more users and organizations depend on open source software, introducing a dedicated test management tool to manage test cases and to ensure great release quality gets more important for projects.

Open source teams already use various tools to manage their software development process such as bug trackers, project management tools and source control. Teams can also benefit from a test management software to manage, organize and execute their tests. TestRail allows contributors to participate in projects' software testing efforts and even enables non-technical users to contribute to projects.

We decided to make free licenses of our test management software available to open source teams as a way to give back to the community. Gurock Software is using various open source projects to power the infrastructure and development process so this makes a lot of sense for us. Interested open source teams can contact us or learn more about the offer on the dedicated web page.

Hello,

We just launched Open Source Test Management, a new directory and guide to free test management tools, related articles and resources. There are dozens of free test management tools out there, each one with a different feature set, capabilities and design goals so we wanted to provide a central reference list of available tools. I would appreciate your feedback and welcome ideas.

The goal of this website is to provide a useful starting point for testers and managers looking for more information about available tools and links to articles and tutorials. We will be adding additional resources to the site in the coming weeks, so if you think we forgot something, please let me know!

Thanks,

Hello Hassan,

please see the following thread which should answer your question about log4j vs SmartInspect:

Let me know if you have any other question!

Hello Henry,

the charts in the SmartInspect Console actually display the data of specific 'watches' you log and send to the Console. So if you send the database connection count to the Console every time you open or close a connection, for example, you can create a graph in the Console to visually highlight this information.

The Console is not a dashboard-like application though, so you cannot add custom indicators or graphs to it. And although the Console is a graphical tool, it's not designed for executives, but has been optimized for developers to quickly navigate through large amounts of logging data and to easily identify bugs, solve issues and easily trace applications.

Regards,
Dennis
