Version 2015.1 Release 2

14 April 2016
NLP Process
  • Support for German language
  • New information to understand why a requirement statement pattern is not matching
  • Copy database process improved
  • New retrieval configuration management possibilities
  • Automatic terminology generation process improvements
  • Not removing final dot in the requirement statements
Out-of-the-box ontologies
  • Support for German language out-of-the-box
  • Support for Swedish language out-of-the-box
  • Tokenization:
    • Number detection improvements
    • Inclusion of helpful descriptions in the tokenization rules
  • Revision of the metrics based on special sentences
  • Revision of the correctness metrics including renaming and adding suitable descriptions.
Knowledge Manager
  • Authentication process integrated with Active Directory
  • Suggestions process improvement
  • Speedup when authentication failed
  • Terminology:
    • Term edition form improved 
    • Term tooltip improved
    • Tokenization test result display improved to show the full row.
    • Affixes duplication process improved by also duplicating the contents of the original affix
  • Conceptual model:
    • Possibility to display of the classification code in the SCM hierarchies
    • Deletion of branches improved
    • Export and import possibilities improved
  • Patterns:
    • Improve the pattern wizard in the syntax step by adding slot restriction swapping buttons inside the same slot (vertical swaps)
    • Solved bug when splitting a pattern Into pieces, it created sequential slots but when loading again the slots were turned into slot restrictions.
    • All pattern deletion improvements: now this option covers sentence and complex patterns
    • Test integrity improvement
    • Testing: new functionality to include information to know why a pattern has not been matched by a text.
  • Formalization:
    • Complex pattern formalization management
    • Solved bug which duplicated properties while editing an already existing one
  • Indexing / Retrieval configurations:
    • Retrieval configuration management improvements, including a list of relationships types to be propagated in retrieval time
Requirements Quality Analyzer (RQA)
  • Correctness metric filters improved, now the requirements not matching the filters will score a N/A quality for the metric.
  • A requirement will score N/A quality if all their enabled correctness metrics score N/A
  • Improve special sentence detection: special sentences completely included inside a complex term that are not the complex term are now detected as exceptions but not computed as instances of the sentences.
  • Improved interactive reporting while assessing metrics on demand.
  • Quality Control
    • Scoreboard:
      • Consistency and completeness summary by requirement improved
      • New KPI report included
      • Current set of requirements reports improved
      • Deletion of assessments done with other SKB existing in the connected specification.
      • Out-of-date assessment warning by requirement
      • Improved reporting exporting to excel when there are more columns that the XLS format permits.
      • Full view option bug solved
    • Correctness reporting
      • New charts in metric windows: all quality levels vs valid quality levels
      • Redesign of the aggregation form.
      • Possibility to enable/disable aggregation by user
      • Custom chart bugs solved
    • Consistency and completeness metric result forms improved to show the assessment in a friendly and more accurate way
      • Out-of-date assessment warning by metric
      • Properties metrics improved:
      • The properties attribute is not sorted alphabetically, now it does not change the ontology order.
    • Suggestion management:
      • Included suggestion detail form when double clicking on the suggestion row.
  • Quality configuration:
    • Possibility to configure consistency and completeness metrics over a set of specifications
    • Specification configuration:
      • Improved attribute selection for filters and custom code fields.
      • New regular expression operator in the attribute filtering operators
      • Added new description field to hold user comments
      • Possibility to create or update baselines from the current specification configuration
    • Quality function definitions:
      • Support for single points (ranges with 0 dimensions) in the quality function.
      • Overlapping and missing links pattern configuration separated from the correctness configuration for pattern groups and patterns. Now it allows missing links and overlapping analysis with different pattern analysis by specification.
    • Overlapping metric:
      • Added configuration options to recalculate the formal representation even if the requirements have not been changed
      • Added pattern group and pattern configuration possibilities
      • Added retrieval configuration selector
    • Missing link metric:
      • Added configuration options to recalculate the formal representation even if the requirements have not been changed
      • Added pattern group and pattern configuration possibilities
      • Added retrieval configuration selector
  • Quality assurance:
    • Improvement in the complex noun and verb management in RQA, now it reloads the ontology after one complex term has been added or modified.
    • Improved module configuration loader to configure a DOORS specification from a CSV in a batch mode.
    • Improved suggestion workflow
Requirements Authoring Tool (RAT)
  • Improved usability interaction while editing requirements
  • Improved “Insert requirement below” only available on RMS allowing this capability
  • Authoring assessment with patterns ending in optional elements.
  • Improved features highlighting in the editing textbox
  • Solved problems of losing requirement style (font, bold, italic, line spacing)
  • Modified “Pattern matching” metric to work as an indicator of the authoring assistance status (authoring frame colour) for the overall correctness quality level.
  • Added functionality to show why the current requirement statement is not matching the selected authoring pattern(s)
  • Added delay warning when the “misspelling metric” is enabled.
  • Improved consistency and completeness evaluation on-the-fly tab to show more accurate results for the editing requirement
    • Improved feedback in the overlapping requirments on-the-fly tab to investigate more accurately the source of the overlapping
  • Improved trace tab behaviour. Now it’s disabled for those project in RMS that are not capable of manage traces
  • Overlapping requirement tab improvements: new information messages added
  • Improved suggestion workflow
  • Improved indexing information tab
RQS Server
