Gurock announced TestRail 4.0 today, a new version of their web-based test management tool. TestRail is used by software teams to manage and organize their testing efforts and to track the quality of software projects. Testing Java applications and other software projects is challenging as it's getting more and more difficult to track all relevant tests. TestRail integrates with JIRA, Jenkins and automated tests to help with this and the new version introduces support for test suite baselines among other improvements.
TestRail's interface was redesigned from the ground up to provide a modern user experience for testing teams. TestRail 4.0 also introduces bulk editing and rich filtering options to make it easier to update and work with many test cases.
Another area Gurock focused on is improving the navigation in the application. Unlike most web applications, TestRail now remembers the exact state of pages when testers move between suites and tests. This makes it faster and more productive to work with test suites, according to Gurock.
The development team behind TestRail also worked on a new baseline mode. Similar to version control systems like Git and Subversion, TestRail's baselines can be used to maintain separate branches of test suites and cases in parallel. This can be useful for teams that need to work on multiple major versions at the same time.
