Gurock introduces TestRail 4.0 with redesigned UX

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. TestRail directly integrates with popular issue tracking tools such as Atlassian JIRA.

Gurock redesigned TestRail’s interface 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.

TestRail 4.0 also comes with various other new features and improvements. Gurock improved the built-in Todo tab to assign and track tests for individual testers. Additional reports make it easier to identify new and updated tests and Gurock also updated TestRail’s JIRA integration to work with issue links.

“We closely listened to many leading testing teams and redesigned TestRail based on their excellent feedback,” said Dennis Gurock, CEO of the company. “We are really proud that TestRail is adopted by so many new testing teams every week and we specifically built TestRail to work well with any workflow or team size.”

TestRail 4.0 is available both as a web-based SaaS/cloud edition and can be installed by customers on their own server. A free trial version of TestRail is available on Gurock’s website.
