For a summary of items in this release, see the following highlights:
In this release, you can copy artifacts across components from a folder to a folder, from a folder to a module, and from a module to a module. When you paste artifacts into the target component, you can create back links for traceability purposes and specify mappings between the component type systems. You can also drag and drop artifacts to copy them across components.
This release supports links between artifacts on different servers. All link operations, such as create, modify, and delete, are available for cross-server links. Link validity is also supported. Cross-server links can be based on either system-defined or custom-defined link typess. You can also drag and drop cross-server links to create them.
Differentiating module artifacts from base artifacts
To further differentiate module artifacts from base artifacts, you can now specify a common folder for module content folders. The common folder organizes base artifacts in a hierarchy under a single folder, which can help you identify module artifacts from base artifacts and which can help you focus on module data.
This release includes several usability improvements, including drag-and-drop support for moving folders, visual indicators for non-editable cells, and the ability to rename a review on the Reviews page.
