RationalPlan 5.9 just received a new look and feel for the Cloud solution with a lighter browser based interface. Compatibility with Microsoft Project files was improved while Tomcat 10 support was added. Other features include columns grouping within the Portfolio view.

RationalPlan is a project management software suite that is available either as stand alone products or as a cloud service. It is used by individuals and companies that need a solution to manage their projects in an efficient way.

Features added for RationalPlan 5.9

  • New interface design
  • Added possibility to multi group columns in Portfolio view
  • Improved compatibility with Microsoft Project
  • Tomcat 10 compatibility


Starting with version 5.9 the web-based interface got a redesign for RationalPlan Cloud service and RationalPlan Server product. The new look and feel is lighter and uses a modern flat theme.

Users can now have the possibility to multi group columns in the Portfolio view. This feature is useful when tracking projects and to get them organised on several criteria.

The integration with Microsoft Project was improved to better support the latest file versions.

RationalPlan Server was upgraded to also support Tomcat 10 for deployment. There is a significant breaking change between Tomcat 9.0.x and Tomcat 10.0.x: the Java package used by the specification APIs has changed from javax… to jakarta… Hence changes were made against the new APIs.
