I’m happy to announce the first Polarion release since the announcement of our acquisition by Siemens: Polarion version 2015 SR3. This is the last planned service release for version 2015. As some of you know, all the new features and improvements delivered this year roll up to comprise the next major version – Polarion 2016. That means that most of what’s in Polarion 2016 (and every new major version) has already been rolled out and used in production by many of our customers, so you can consider updating with a pretty high degree of confidence. But let’s talk about the current release and see what’s new and noteworthy. (more…)

There’s actually quite a bit, as some things have been in development for several release cycles and are ready for release now. So let’s get started. (more…)

Welcome to another post from the Polarion Technical Support Team. From time to time we face challenging situations when the solution of the problem is not obvious at first glance and some research around is necessary. Let me share with you one such case that we successfully resolved. (more…)
The recent release of Polarion Version 2015 introduced a new feature called LiveReport Pages. This new type of page allows Polarion users to create online information and develop reports visually, using predefined “widgets”. The initial widget catalog has a full SDK documentation how the widgets can be implemented to support even more use cases which can be addressed using these widgets. If you haven’t seen the new Pages and widgets, you can look into the demo projects included with Polarion 2015, where some of the reports are now implemented with the new technology.
You might be interested to know that barely 1 month after our newest release was published, we already have 3 additional widgets available through the Polarion Extensions portal. All of them are incorporate well-known functionality from our classic wiki pages, but it’s now usable by non-coders as widgets – which is why they were introduced. (more…)
Polarion 2014 introduced the Highcharts library enabling you to easily implement various kinds of charts such as bar, line, area, area spline, pie etc. In addition to these, there are also other types of charts like columnrange chart (http://www.highcharts.com/demo/columnrange) – that require the highcharts-more.js file.
This comes out-of-the-box in Polarion 2014 SR2 and up, but if you cannot update to the latest version for some reason here is how such chart can be implemented in Polarion: (more…)
One major thing that contributes to a tech company’s success is how well they support their customers. At Polarion, “good enough” has never been good enough. Our goal is excellent customer support. In this article, I’d like to tell you a bit about our support portal, and what we’ve done to make sure it meets the needs of our customers, as well as our support team. (more…)
People who are new to Polarion (and even some who are not so new) often take quite some time before they look into the many Polarion extensions available on the Polarion Extension Portal. This is understandable, as it may take a while to understand what sort of added or enhanced functionality might help them.
Extensions range from integrations with other tools, to project templates, to enhancements of out-of-box Polarion features. We hope you’ll find the time to explore the portal on your own and see what’s there. There is quite a bit, so to help you out, we’ve decided to point you to at least one extension every month that various people here at Polarion feel is cool and useful. This month’s featured extension is called Work Item Live Status. (more…)

As with all our releases, the features and improvements we introduce in service release roll up into the next major version, in this case, Polarion 2015. I invite you to check out what’s coming your way in that version on our 2015 Early Access microsite.
Meantime, let me provide here an overview of the main new features, improvements, and fixes for the 2014 SR3 release. (more…)
