Borland proudly announces the general availability of Atlas 2.3! If you already use Atlas and you have a maintenance contract, you can upgrade to Atlas 2.3 for free.

Borland Atlas is a central platform for gathering and delivering requirements. New features and improvements mean Atlas now offers even more flexibility to help teams collaborate efficiently and stay in sync. Business as well as Agile teams can clearly see a real-time status of their software delivery life-cycle. Respond faster to market demands with Atlas' new Agile requirements management features.

Atlas 2.3 now includes the Atlas Planning and Tracking Suite comprising Atlas, Borland hub, Borland Connect and StarTeam Agile. The following features from 2.2 are also included:

Copy and Paste Requirements across Projects

You may have requirements in one project that you'd like to reuse in another. However, you don't want to reuse all requirement so an import and export would require too much pruning work to be efficient. Atlas allows you to copy your selected requirements across projects with a simple copy and paste. Requirement and Project IDs are copied, but Relationships and child Requirements do not copy and paste with the selected Requirements.

Display Search Results from Specific Projects

You can now display search results from all projects, current project, or specific projects. This provides manageable sized search results and allows you to search in projects of interest to you.

Turn Requirement IDs on or off in Tree

With a simple click of a button, you can view Requirement IDs in the Tree View.

Hyperlink Back to Atlas in Exported CSV File

Atlas provides a link to each original requirement in the last column of the exported CSV file. Copy and paste the link into a browser to navigate back to the requirement in Atlas.

Time Machine Difference Overview

The Time Machine in the Tracking perspective uses Atlas's version capability to allow you to view historical delivery data. The Difference Overview panel helps you quickly understand the true changes that have occurred over time across the integrated tools.

Version Compare in Activity Feed

You can now view version comparisons of Requirements and Stories on the Activity feed.

Detailed Differences in Compare

For easy identification of changes, Compare provides detailed differences highlighting description changes in color when comparing versions of Requirements and Stories.

Combined Whiteboards and Concepts in Relationships

When adding Relationships, Whiteboards and Concepts are combined on one tab. You can now see to which Whiteboard the concepts belong instead of seeing a long list of concepts.

Show Associated Plan in Requirement Deliver Status

While in a Requirement, you can quickly view the associated Plan. If there isn't an associated Plan, you can click the field and select a Plan right within the Requirement. Additionally, you can click the Plan in the Delivery Status of the Requirement and you can open it. If the requirement is in multiple plans, the Deliver Status states "Multiple." Click Multiple to show a menu that allows you to choose the plan to open.
