The following is a list of new features added to this release. For further details about any feature, please refer to support@t-plan.com.

Version Management

Provided as an extension, the new Version Management module features the ability to create snapshots of hierarchy nodes across each of the modules. Snapshots can then be compared against each other or to the current state of your testing data.

The ability to create version snapshots is restricted by permissions allowing you to have tight control over your version management data.

VBA Macro Utility

An extremely powerful utility allowing you to further expand the capabilities and even the workings of T-Plan through VBA Macros. These can be created internally or imported from external sources.
*Please use with caution*

New Combined Installer

The installation process has now been drastically simplified for the entire product suite through a single WiX installer. The central installation allows the core product and any desired extensions to be loaded along with any pre-requisites with the need for additional setups.

Support for SQL2012

Various underlying changes have been made to ensure compatibility with SQL2012 and onwards. This will be an ongoing process to keep in line with each SQL release.
