We have focused on three key areas with this release:
Parasoft SOAtest and Virtualize are widely recognized as industry standard tools for enabling teams to quickly solve complex testing challenges. In a continued effort to improve functionality and ease-of-use we have introduced new tools and streamlined workflows to solve everyday challenges that developers and testers face.
In addition, Parasoft Virtualize Community Edition (CE) is now available for developers and testers to start simulating realistic test environments immediately . . . for free. CE enables individual users and small teams to experience core Virtualize features without any upfront costs.
Create Repository from Form input; We have streamlined the process of creating a Data Repository data source by adding the ability to create the structure and initial data directly from your test case. This enhancement will reduce the overall time of creating a reusable data driven test and allow for greater data collaboration
Ability to abort a scenario on any error: This enhancement gives test designers greater flexibility when building test case execution flows. With this added logic users, can stop execution based on any condition (such as assertion failures), not just fatal errors.
Load Test Continuum (LTC), a is web enabled dashboard for reporting results from Parasoft Load Test, in this release we have enhanced both the user interface and the workflows for getting information into the reporting and analytics ecosystem. LTC can now also be associated with your SLAs to ensure your applications are performing according to your customer expectations. LTC is available as a war file distributed with SOAtest and LoadTest licenses are available at no additional cost to SOAtest Professional Desktop and Automation users. SOAtest Desktop users have access to a license for five virtual users. SOAtest Automation users have access a license enabling 100 virtual users.
SOAtest, Load Test and Virtualize have been updated to support the following:

In this release we have greatly enhanced the API Testing and Service Virtualization modules in our thin client interface. This interface enables teams to quickly initiate testing projects and enables the entire test and development community to create test cases and virtual services through the intuitive browser interface. This functionality is powered by the SOAtest and Virtualize servers and can be easily deployed via Docker and cloud platforms.
This release includes new tools and significant enhancements to the thin client interface for API Testing (powered by SOAtest) and Service Virtualization (powered by Virtualize).
The API Testing and Service Virtualization modules can now consume API data from latest RAML definition, extending our support for the latest advancements in development specifications for RESTful services.
Preconfigured deployment images for CTP and Virtualize are now available in both the Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure marketplaces. These images can be licensed either 'on-demand' (managed by the marketplace) or via 'bring your own license' (BYOL).
