Current RTH status

March 17, 2013

Hi all!

Recently I got some emails with questions about the current status of RTH:

As you can see I am still here and taking care of the blog and of questions people post here (at least as far as I know the answers) – that’s the good news. The bad news is, that currently no developer is working on RTH and as I do not have the required PHP skills on the one hand, and the needed time on the other hand there is no progress in development of RTH at the moment.

So if you have the needed PHP skills and want to contribute to RTH please contact me andreas_rth <at>

Thank you for your attention!

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Syndey Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 18,000 times in 2011. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 7 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

RTH in the news!

December 7, 2010

I guess most of you know “Testing Experience“. In this month issues you can read about RTH:

“RTH turned out to be a pleasant surprise. I’ve been using it for just over three years now and have eleven different projects in the database. Not only has it proven useful on active projects, I often use it to retrieve test results from legacy projects.”

You can find the download here.

I would like to thank anybody who contributed to RTH and who supported me. Furthermore I would like to thank Bruce Butler for writing this article (Bruce I tried to contact you but it failed – can you please send an e-mail?)


December 15, 2009

As I said in my last post I’m very busy at the moment (my new job is quite a challenge) – but yesterday I talked to a former colleague and he told me that RTH will perhaps get some support in the future.

So once more: I need any help that I can get as my time is very limited at the moment. And I know that there are a lot of things to fix and to improve – so if you are experienced with PHP and MySQL and if you want to patricipate please contact me.


New developer

October 18, 2009

Due to my new job I’m having hardly any time to work on RTH – so Im really happy to announce that a new developer joined the project. He is currently focusing on fixing some bugs and I hope that we can soon release a new version with some of the fixes.

We also want to include some new localisations, so if you have translated RTH in your language please send your files so we can include them – THANKS!

XML Bridge for RTH

October 2, 2009

I just got a message from Benjamin Balet who implemented a RTH to XML bridge:

I’m developing (free/GPL) tools around RTH and I translated articles
posted on my blog in english (or frenglish/globlish ;) ).
The first one is a simple way to retrieve data from RTH Database
(I am using it so as to connect automated testing tools and for an Excel reporting tool) :
* XML Bridge for RTH :
And in French:
 * Un Bridge XML pour RTH :
Don’t hesitate to comment / suggest.
Best Regards,
 Benjamin BALET
