Deepest Sympathies to the Family of Garrett Braden

One of our Testopia contributors was tragically killed in an auto accident on the night of Friday Feb 23, 2007. Garrett was responsible for parts of the environment system in Testopia and created the XML import/export of environments.
Garrett was a recent graduate of Neumont University in Salt Lake City. His profile mentions his work on Testopia. He leaves behind his wife of only a few weeks.

Garrett, you will be missed.

Testopia 1.1.3

Finally feeling better after two colds, and ear infection, and a flu. The good news is Testopia 1.1.3 is now ready. I fixed a lot of bugs and added some nifty features such as a quciksearch. Now you don't have to remember your plan number, you can enter the all or part of the name (prepended with "plan") and it will come up with your test plan. Same goes for cases, runs, and environments.

You can now also save searches.

Version 1.2 will be all about access control. The current thinking is to have access control lists on test plans that will apply to associated test cases and runs. This will allow plan owners to manage who can get to the objects on their plan. We are thinking of dropping the three groups which are currently used and replace them with a single "testers" group that will have default read and write rights. Beyond that, individuals can be added to plans or you can use a regular expression, similar to current bugzilla groups. I am open to suggestions though.
