Database

  • Remove old squashed migrations for management, testplans, testcases and testruns apps
  • Squash the remaining migrations for management, testplans, testcases and testruns apps

How to upgrade

If you are using Kiwi TCMS as a Docker container then:

cd Kiwi/
git pull
docker-compose down
docker pull kiwitcms/kiwi
docker pull centos/mariadb
docker-compose up -d
docker exec -it kiwi_web /Kiwi/manage.py migrate

Don't forget to backup before upgrade!

Subscription based online service

We are planning to convert https://demo.kiwitcms.org into a subscription based service for people who don't want to bother installing Kiwi TCMS on their own systems and just want to use it for test collaboration with their team.

The income from this service will go towards covering operating costs and supporting the development team. Watch this blog for further announcements about this. Meanwhile you may share your thoughts via Issue #515.

Plans to remove deprecated functionality

TestRun.product_version will be removed from the database schema in favor of TestRun.plan.product_version! With the latest web interface it is not possible to select a product version different than the one selected in the Test Plan. Test runs should only be able to select product builds (after Issue #246 is fixed).
