Dear QF-Test users,

for the benefit of those that don't receive our newsletter the
technical details of new QF-Test releases are also announced on this
mailing list. My apologies if you receive this information twice.

QF-Test version 3.4.11 is available for download from


The main reason for this release at this time is a security update for
the latest JRE version 1.6.0_35 and 1.7.0_7 that broke QF-Test's
connection mechanism for Java applets. QF-Test 3.4.11 is compatible
with those JRE versions and also adds support for Firefox version 17
and a filter for Javascript errors.

All users with a valid license for QF-Test 3.4 can upgrade directly to
QF-Test version 3.4.11.

New features:

* QF-Test is now compatible with Java applets running on JRE version
  1.6.0_35 or higher or JRE version 1.7.0_7 or higher. A security fix
  from Oracle broke the existing applet connection mechanism. The new
  mechanism should also improve stability of Java WebStart based SUTs.

* Support was added for Firefox version 17.

* Via the new option "Errors that should be ignored" it is now
  possible to ignore specific Javascript error messages while still
  treating others as an error.

* When copying multiple lines of a table in the detail view of QF-Test
  these are now also copied to the system clipboard as a list of
  TAB-separated values, thus enabling pasting into a spreadsheet.

* The new procedure qfs.utils.logNativeMemory in the standard
  library qfs.qft can be used to get information about the native
  memory use of an SUT client. This is supported on Windows and Linux

* Windows executables and installers created by QFS are now signed
  with an official certificate for smoother integration with Windows 7
  and Windows 8.

Bugs fixed:

* Downloads of large files were sometimes truncated.

* The new INPUT types in HTML 5 are now mapped to INPUT:TEXT so that
  tests remain independent of whether the browser supports them.

* The command line argument -runlogdir <directory> now also works for
  daemon calls via qftest -batch -calldaemon.

* Empty formatted cells in an Excel 2010 sheet are now handled
  correctly by the 'Excel data file' node.

* Toolbar icons for QF-Test's browser wrapper are now transparent and
  no longer look horrible on Windows 7.
