Due to issues found after the release of 9.5, today we released build 9.5.1 to GA.


9.5.1 is being replicated now and will be posted to in the next few hours (you may see it now depending on your region). 9.5.1 will replace 9.5 and we will remove the 9.5 release from the support site tomorrow morning (after 9.5.1 replication is complete).


When we refer to 9.5 in future posts, we'll be referring to the 9.5.1 build so those who are using 9.5 today are encouraged to replace with 9.5.1 as soon as possible to alleviate any issues or confusion.


The changes/fixes in 9.5.1 are published here:


Also, ICYMI, Video Demos of the new features in 9.5 are now available on this YouTube Playlist

Shout-out to the following members who helped out by answering a question in the community in the past few weeks:


Think you have a potential answer? Jump in! Here is the list of unanswered questions:

Customers often ask “Where do we Start” when setting up and configuring their DevTest architecture. Of course, this really depends on how they plan to use DevTest - whether using Virtual Services or running tests or maybe a combination of both. So based on potential usage of DevTest, we started building a Best Practice Architecture Guide based on real world deployments.  As a part of this initiative, we will build out several architectures that are implemented by either customers or CA Services or are new/tested architectures that fit a specific need.

Our intention is to provide options for customers, partners and CA Services on how to implement DevTest within their environment to meet the specific use cases.



This third use case walks through setting up DevTest 9.1 in Microsoft® Azure environment for multiple teams that do not work on a common project, but need segregated and separate resources to create, test and operate automated tests and virtual services.




Again and as always, comments and feedback are welcome (Koustubh.Warty, Ulrich_Vogt).



So far following detailed DevTest Architecture Best Practice Guides have been published:


Here's our second installment of the monthly DevTest Idea update. The goal of these monthly updates is to give you one place each month to see which ideas statuses have changed so that you can focus your attention to the updates that may be important to you and your team.


The list below is sorted by the status and then the category or product. For details on why the status was changed, just click on the link to the idea and check out our comments and notes.


Delivered: These features are GA! Comment on them to tell us what you think of them.


Currently Planned - We have these in our backlog as a high priority and our team is working to get them into the next major or minor release. Your comments are valuable here as we're in the process of building.


Wish Listed - We agree these are important ideas but either need more information or don't have it planned yet for a release. We've placed it in our agile backlog for prioritization. Vote for these ideas to move them up the priority list!


Under Review - We're researching, need more information from you or haven't yet dug deep into these ideas. Help us gain clarity by adding your comments and use cases.


Not Planned - We don't feel these ideas are aligned to our product strategy. They are not planned for now or future.
