Version: kiwitestpad-3.21.2 Released on: 2017-05-26 Severity: High URL:


KiwiTestPad is an open source test plan, test run and test case management system. It has a lot of great features, such as Bugzilla and JIRA integration, QPID integration, fast test plan and runs search, powerful access control for each plan, run and case, and XMLRPC APIs.

Starting with this release the product will be available under the name KiwiTestPad with an upstream repository at

We have been working actively with the upstream Nitrate project in the past several months. However the community is practically unresponsive and without a clear vision how to develop in the future. The PR velocity is very slow and pull requests have been opened for months and years. This is why at Mr. Senko we have decided to fork the project completely and drive the new community on our own!

The most important changes you can expect in the short-term future are complete integration with JIRA and GitHub, improvements to documentation, improved support for running as Docker container, migration to latest Django versions and migration to Python 3, cleaning up of obsolete dependencies and streamlining the process of creating customized configuration of KiwiTestPad, improved visual design and simplified UX!
