A Package is a namespace as well as an element that can be contained in other package's namespaces.

A Requirement is a custom element used to capture requirements external  to standard UML elements; a Requirement expresses required system behavior that can cross several Use Cases.

You can connect Requirements to other elements using the Realize connector to express the implementation of a requirement and hence the traceability from user requirements to what is being built.

An Issue element is a structured comment that contains information about defects and issues relating to the system/model; affected elements are connected by Trace connectors.

A Change element is a structured comment that contains information about changes requested to the system/model; affected elements are connected by Trace connectors.

A Screen provides a stereotyped Class element that displays a GUI type screen; this can be used to express application GUI elements and flows between them.

A UI Control likewise can be used to express GUI controls.

A Test Case element defines what must be set up in order to test a particular feature; it enables you to define a set of tests once for a number of elements, and provides greater visibility for tests.

An Entity is a stereotyped element that represents any general thing not captured by the element or Class type elements (for example a trading partner); use of this element is deprecated - it was originally intended to take the role now occupied by a Table element.
