FIXED
Display issue related to the left side panel

When the left hand side bar was in a collapsed state, clicking on parts of the display panel other than the "expand" button could sometimes lead to undesirable display results.

Thank you, Chandan, for bringing the issue to our attention.

FIXED
Spurious scrollbars in the parameter length warning dialog in Internet Explorer

These are now gone.

NEW
Bulk Edit

Hot on the heels of our popular new "bulk add" feature comes "bulk edit". If you have a bunch of parameters to edit in your plan, there is now a faster "bulk edit" option. Click the "bulk edit" link and then edit your parameters and values with the name, a colon and then a comma separated list of values with a new line for each parameter:

parameter name1: value 1, value 2, ...
parameter name2: value 1, value 2, ...

Enjoy the faster speed when you have a lot of data to edit!

(We're noodling on what to do about values that have commas for "bulk add" and "bulk edit". If you have any suggestions, let us know.)

FIXED
Potential for AutoScript pane to hang with spinner in rare cases

Thanks to Cecilia for reporting this issue.

NEW
IE 6 Support with Google Frame

If you insist on using IE 6 (and according to the most recent metrics from the people that track that kind of thing, about 8% of web users do) we now have an answer for you that allows you to use Hexawise. You can install the Google Chrome Frame plugin (doesn't require admin permissions on your computer) in IE 6 and use Hexawise. Enjoy!

FIXED
Error shown when trying to create or update a parameter to an already used name w/o a case match

Each parameter name needs a case insensitive unique name. If the cases matched, the UI would kindly tell you about this restriction, but when the cases didn't match it would just silently fail to create or update the parameter.

IMPROVED
UI when resetting a forgotten password

It's now friendlier.

IMPROVED
Spinner shown when editing a plan

This operation can take a few seconds and there was no feedback before that it was working.

IMPROVED
Prior password (not just a login) required to update your current password

More secure approach.

FIXED
UI glitches in bulk update in IE browser

These didn't prevent proper functioning, but were a bit of an eye sore.

FIXED
The losing your parameter edits dialog didn't show after the first successful parameter add

Now it shows anytime you could lose your parameter edits.

CHANGED
Hosting software infrastructure updates

You won't notice these, but it's good that we stay up to date none the less.

January 7, 2012
NEW
"State" and "Country" are available as default parameters

"State" and "Country" are available as default parameters (pick them from the parameter name dropdown list) with regional values and value expansions for all 50 states and all countries.

FIXED
Issue with inaccurate coverage analysis results in some plans.

It's now resolved.

FIXED

Removed the JavaScript exception.

December 23, 2011
FIXED
Regression in warning about too many parameters on a parameter update

It's now fixed. Thanks to Irshad for pointing it out.

Happy Holidays everyone!

IMPROVED
Behavior when importing a new plan fails

Hexawise now shows a more helpful description in the dialog and doesn't create an empty plan (or project).

FIXED
Problem exporting with no generated tests

A problem exporting could happen by using multiple tabs or browsers and leaving the export dialog of a plan open in one while you changed the same plan in the another. It happened to someone rarely, about once a month or so. Hexawise better handles this corner case now.

NEW
Bulk Add

If you have a bunch of parameters to add to your plan, there is now a faster "bulk add" option. Click the "bulk add" link and then enter your parameters and values with the name, a colon and then a comma separated list of values with a new line for each parameter:

parameter name1: value 1, value 2, ...
parameter name2: value 1, value 2, ...

Enjoy the faster speed when you have a lot of data to enter!

FIXED
SSL warning introduced with Get Satisfaction single sign-on

Should be fixed everywhere. Google Chrome tends to cache the warning though.
