TM4J is now called Zephyr Scale!

When SmartBear added TM4J to our product portfolio earlier this spring, it brought us one more step towards our mission: help teams achieve quality throughout the entire software development lifecycle (SDLC), no matter where they are starting from.

Putting this under the Zephyr umbrella makes it easier to determine what you need. Folding TM4J into our Zephyr product family is a natural fit.

Learn more about the name change in our blog post.

Improvements
  • We’ve added a new link to the Help & Support panel for our Ideas Portal. This way, when you notice something you’d like improved or have any bright ideas, you can navigate straight to the Portal and let us know.

Bug fixes
  • We’ve fixed the Test Case By Folder report to show the correct test case count.

  • We’ve fixed a bug with Test Execution permissions to ensure only users with the permission can create test executions.
