By walekJ

Version 2012 – SR1 (Service Release 1) is now available for download on our website (see link below). The update is free to customers with a current maintenance subscription.

Several new features may be of interest to you:

  • Test Steps feature. When enabled (optional), then for manual/formal testing, a table of Test Steps can be added to Test Case descriptions. The table is rendered in a test execution widget during test runs. Testers can record results of each test step, marking steps Passed, Failed, or Blocked, in addition to marking the overall result for the Test Case. Execution time for each Test Case is now part of test records. (Polarion ALM, Polarion QA, Polarion REQUIREMENTS)

  • Translation feature for Work Items. Optionally enable multiple human language translations for Work Item titles and descriptions. Create custom fields to store translation texts to support any number of language translations. Configure different languages for different Work Item types. When Work Items are contained in LiveDoc documents, users can switch to view them in their preferred language, and print or export to PDF in the preferred language. (Polarion ALM, Polarion QA, Polarion REQUIREMENTS)

  • Remote connection to SQL database layer. Connect from a remote client when Polarion is running. New documentation for the database layer is now part of the SDK and includes schema diagrams, remote connection how-to, SQL query examples and more. (All products except Polarion REVIEWER)

  • Support for Google Chrome and Firefox 12.
