CLM 2011 is here: Rational Team Concert, Rational Quality Manager, and Rational Requirements Composer 3.0.1 now available

As you’ve no doubt seen from our many recent blog posts, we’ve been counting down the days to our CLM 2011 release. I’m thrilled to announce that the release is now here! You can learn more about the release on the project pages for Rational Team Concert, Rational Quality Manager, and Rational Requirements Composer, or jump right in and try it out for yourself:

All three products in this Rational solution for Collaborative Lifecycle Management share a common server install. This means you can install any of the products to try out all three. The common server install will allow you to deploy the following:

  • A Jazz Team Server
  • Any of the three CLM applications that connect to a shared Jazz Team Server: Change and Configuration Management (CCM), Quality Management (QM) and Requirements Management (RM)
  • Trial license keys for Rational Team Concert, Rational Quality Manager and Rational Requirements Composer that will let you to access the capabilities provided by the Jazz Team Server and the applications

While all three products utilize the same server, each product may make additional tools available that are intended to run on other machines. For example, Rational Team Concert has a Client for Eclipse IDE as well as a Client for Microsoft Visual Studio IDE, a build system toolkit for running Jazz-based builds, and synchronizers for integrating with Rational ClearCase and Rational ClearQuest. Rational Quality Manager includes a number of utilities, as well as adapters for HP LoadRunner and HP Quick Test Professional.

When you make your way to a 3.0.1 product download page, you’ll see that there are a number of tabs:

  • Getting Started guides you through the steps of planning a deployment, installing and configuring a server, installing optional tools, and exploring the capabilities of the products
  • Featured Download features a button to quickly download the web installer for a server as well as detailed information about the different kinds of licenses for that product
  • New & Noteworthy highlights the new features in this release
  • Release Notes details any issues you should know about before you install and use the software
  • Optional Programs includes information and links about supporting programs for advanced deployments
  • All Downloads includes the complete set of links to all the different kinds of downloads for the product of your choice

If you encounter any issues or you have any questions, please remember that you can post in our forums or submit work items. We look forward to your feedback.
