Testopia 2.3 Wrapping Up

Finally, after much anticipation, stress, and pizza, work on Testopia 2.3 is about done. The biggest challenge that remains is to put together upgrade instructions and possibly a script. After some hemming and hawing, I finally decided to take the plunge and move Testopia into the Bugzilla extensions space, making it a bone fide... well, extension.

This means that if you upgrade to 2.3 from a previous version, and you have made modifications to the Testopia code, you will need to merge your changes into the new location within extensions. I promise the rewards will be well worth the work and wait though. For example, Testopia will now support full XML dumps and import of test plans with all their child data. Also, you can export run results in CSV format to import into your favorite spreadsheet application to build fancy reports.

You will also be able to make a true clone of a test plan now as well. In the past, cloning runs would not link to cloned test cases. Well, now you will be able to copy all your cases as well as your runs and have them magically linked to the copies.

Watch for the announcement in the coming days.
