Introducing Polarion 2015: What’s New and Noteworthy

This is the last addition to our Polarion 2015 release cycle. As you might be aware, Polarion R&D follows the principles of enterprise agile methodology, which enables us to release frequently, faster, and with better customer satisfaction.

We have a “service release” (SR) each quarter, and as the name suggests, it contains issue fixes and feature enhancements. But service releases also include complete new features if they are fully implemented, tested, and documented, and they do not significantly change the way people have been trained to use the last Polarion major version.

All the new features released in the SRs roll up into our next major version, which when released, also includes new features and functionality. So what you will see here are the enhancements published since our last service release Polarion 2014 SR3.

If you want to get a quick overview about our brand new release, check out my release announcement post: Polarion 2015 Delivers Visual Reporting, Variant Management, Enhanced Security and More.

So now let’s go through the final additions to Polarion 2015…

Open Source getting more financial support from the corporate world

By now I’m sure you’ve seen more than enough articles about the so-called “Heartbleed” vulnerability in the OpenSSL project, so I don’t want to write yet another Heartbleed article. But I would like to point you to one that talks about the need for companies who use open source software to support it financially… something Polarion Software has been doing since our start-up days.  (more…)
