This is a propfan, not a fanjet, so yes it is a near 100% bypass like a turboprop. It has been in research and development since the 1980s and a working model has been run since the early 1990s, so it's not exactly new.

It is not enough to test it, it has to be practically applied into service. This kind of engine(super high by-pass prop fan) could be put into service with a new IL-76(-93?) aircraft, to increase their range, efficiency, and cargo capacity. Also I imagine it could be used on the new IL-96-400(493?) wide body airliner to increase range. It has a higher thrust capacity right now than any Russian built engine of this size. But the key is, it needs to be put into production.
