Hi Adam, Elise et al,

Looking forward to seeing Spira v4.1, which we understand is now due for release 12 December 2013.

Our keenness is mostly due to the ‘requirements management’ functionality getting a big overhaul, including the "ability to categorise requirements into types (feature, use-case, etc.)...ability to have customised workflows for each requirement type (Different fields can be made required, hidden or disabled; Customise the flow between statuses)...ability to estimate in story points instead of hours...ability to have requirements organised by folder...ability to associate requirements with business components...ability to have use case requirements that have discrete use case steps that will be converted automatically into test case steps when appropriate...additional requirement statuses...ability for requirement status to be triggered by changes to the test case coverage)".

In our company, we are currently busy redesigning internal processes within software development, and I have been hanging-back on certain changes for a long time now because I was eager to put SpiraTeam at the heart of the new processes. (My colleagues have been very tolerant of this delay and are very interested to see my faith in Spira come good!)

Things like having multiple requirement types, with differing workflows and statuses, and 'use-case to test-case' auto conversion, will make a massive difference to the way we manage requirements in our company as we can adopt Spora more widely across team functions.

So, in that vein, are there any specificiations or working designs that you can share with your loyal client base regarding the above features? Can you help me prepare for this new version with a bit more info about what the new enchancemennts will look like and inter-relate?

Keep up the good work,

Thanks for the update, Jim.

It would be very much appreciated if you guys could keep customers better-informed of delays and slippage in the roadmap. In our company, we are eager to roll-out new processes asap in 2014 and we have various dependencies on v4.1 which affect that.

Best regards.
