Keywords in the Keyword View are alphabetically sorted
In the Keyword View, keywords are now alphabetically sorted so that you can easily find a keyword to add to a manual test script.
The Available Columns list is alphabetically sorted
In the Change Column Display Settings window, the Available Columns list is now alphabetically sorted so that you can easily find a column to add to a table view.
Items in duplicate artifacts are no longer required to be mapped
When you duplicate an artifact that contains categories or custom attributes to another project area, you no longer have to map the categories and custom attributes to items in the target project. You can now indicate that you do not want to include certain categories and custom attributes by selecting the new Do not map option.
If no items match the source name or not enough items exist to be mapped, the Do not map option is selected by default. However, if you want to, you can still map the categories and custom attributes to items in the target project.
Build column for test execution record tables
In the Test Case Execution Record view and the Test Suite Execution Records table, you can show a new column, Build for Last Result. The column is not shown by default; you can show it by using the Change Column Display Settings window. The Build for Last Result column shows the build that was used in the last run of the test case execution record or test suite execution record. You can filter, group, and sort information in the column.
Improvements to the Manage Categories window
The Manage Categories window that opens from supported artifacts can now be horizontally resized. You might want to resize the window when you have a hierarchy of subcategories that is so deep that the tree expands horizontally.
In addition, the Manage Project Properties panel was improved to make better use of the space.
