Fixed

Glitch with test cases table in Firefox

The test case # column would lose alignment with long parameter names on Firefox (pairwise defect).

 

May 18, 2018

Improved

Prevent email scanners from activating email validation link

Added a step to the new user email validation process to prevent early activation by aggressive email monitoring systems that access the link.

 

Improved

Replace “Back to Plans” button in project dialog with a link in the title bar

This is both an improved user experience (there are no longer 2 primary buttons competing for your attention) and addresses a bug where the button goes away with a certain sequence of user actions.

 

May 14, 2018

Fixed

Escaped HTML shown in read-only plan dialog

 
 

Fixed

Mouse over tooltips could stick around after closing modal dialogs which invoked them

 
 

Fixed

Plan dialog regression with pairwise roots

Fixed a pairwise defect in the new feature of showing the project the plan belongs to when opening the “Your Test Plans” dialog for the first time. If you happen to be in a read-only sample plan, the “Your Sample Test Plans” project wouldn’t be found in the list of your projects, and the dialog would hang.

 

May 11, 2018

Improved

Import failure warning and details when importing into an existing plan

The same useful feedback from an unsuccessful import wasn’t available when importing into an existing plan, but now it is.

 

May 9, 2018

New

There’s now a hint for the useful CTRL + Enter keyboard shortcut of Define Inputs bulk edit

 
 

Fixed

Regression in copying sample plans

 
 

Fixed

Defect editing parameter name with special character sequence in bulk edit

This was an interesting 3-way defect involving a certain type of data, “(?)” in the name, a certain operation, updates, and a certain mode of the operation, bulk edit.

For the curious, “(?)” proved problematic as it interfered with a regular expression being used to handle the edit request.

 

May 8, 2018

Improved

Create a new project workflow

After creating a new project, you’re now brought to the share dialog as the next step, rather than the “Your plans” dialog.

 

May 7, 2018

Improved

Open plan dialog in the currently active project

When working on a test plan in a project, the “Your plans” dialog now opens to that project by default, rather than to “Your plans”.

 

April 26, 2018

Fixed

Sample import file updated to latest format

 
 

Fixed

Import file explanation dialog formatting was glitched

 
 

April 25, 2018

Fixed

Number of interactions tooltip

The # of interactions tooltip shows “null” when there are no “any valid values” (purple italics) in the generated test. It’s rare to have none, but quite possible. A classic of the pairwise defect genre.

 

Fixed

Warning when navigating away from bulk edit with unsaved changes

This warning had stopped working as a regression.

 

April 18, 2018

Fixed

Minor formatting issue in parameter length warning dialog

A parameter length warning dialog that appears when parameters are created with eight or more values.

The first issue was that the word ‘parameters’ was always pluralized, even if there was only one parameter listed.

The second issue was that we were showing the actual array (as in “[OS, Browser]”) instead of a list of the array’s elements in the dialog.

 

Improved

Wording of the “largest” parameters tip in the plan scorecard for mixed-strength tests

 
 

April 16, 2018

Fixed

Help link doesn’t work in Internet Explorer

 
 

April 10, 2018

Fixed

Odd little bug… step 1 of auto-scripts disappears when clicking “add” while it’s blank

 
 

April 9, 2018

Improved

Store and use the last calculated strength used

This prevents Hexawise from continually loading a test combination strength you aren’t interested in. Before Hexawise used last computed strength rather than last viewed/used.

 

Fixed

Deleting the currently open plan now properly redirects you out of the plan

Are there any defects that aren’t pairwise? Oh, so very few.

 

April 3, 2018

Fixed

Issue when reverting to a prior version of a plan, or when importing a plan, only when value expansions expand the parameter values with the same name in different parameters

A true classic of a pair-wise defect. Put this one in the dictionary as a canonical example of the term.

 

April 2, 2018

Fixed

Editing project name of current plan’s project

Editing the name of the project that owns that plan you’re in from the Edit Project dialog would make the share link on the plan’s page stale.
