SilkTest 2006 released by Borland

I suspect the main reason for fresh release is only marketing in addition to Borland JBuilder 2006, Borland Delphi 2006, Borland C++ Builder 2006, Borland C# Builder 2006 the customers are going to have Borland SilkTest 2006. Reading through release notes I see that only two bugs were fixed in the new release and automation tool packaged with TrueLog Explorer which supposes to simplify root cause analysis of test case failures via visual verification. The SilkTest 2006 supports integration with Borland's StarTeam 2005, but you need to buy one. SilkTest International is no more and it is included in the new version and the same happened with .Net support. The bad new is that the price of upgraded automated tool skyrocketed from $6,500 to $9,000 and the same deal appears with SilkTest runtime license it went up to $4,000 from $3,250. Is time to buy BORL? Not yet! SilkTest 2006 only works in an United States locale environment (locale is a set of user preference information related to the user's language, environment and/or cultural conventions). As we all know Windows XP includes support 136 different locales and Borland tested tool only for one of them.
