 QF-Test versions 3.5M2 and 3.4.12 released
 ==========================================

QF-Test versions 3.5M2 and 3.4.12 are available for download from

   http://www.qfs.de/en/qftest/download.html

QF-Test 3.5M2 adds support for the latest Eclipse updates to version
4.2.1 and 3.8.1 and improves handling of Java WebStart. The license
check for running but idle QF-Test daemon instances has been fixed and
the new feature for securing daemon communication via SSL is now fully
documented.

With version 3.4.12 the 3.4 branch of QF-Test has now also been
brought up-to-date with Eclipse 4.2.1 and 3.8.1 as well as Firefox 18,
which was already included in QF-Test 3.5M1.


 Release Notes for QF-Test version 3.5M2
 =======================================

New features:
-------------

* Eclipse/SWT support was updated for Eclipse versions 4.2.1 and
  3.8.1.

* Daemon communication is now secured via SSL. Manual chapter 40
  explains how to increase security by creating an individual keystore
  or how to disable this feature in case you need daemon interaction
  with older QF-Test versions.

* QF-Test generated JUnit reports now contain <skipped> tags, enabling
  build tools like Hudson/Jenkins to correctly report skipped tests.

Bugs fixed:
-----------

* License usage for idle QF-Test daemons was not determined correctly.

* Replaying certain events in batch mode could switch QF-Test into
  recording mode, causing weird problems and significant loss of
  performance.

* Timing for startup of Java WebStart based SUTs has been further
  improved to significantly increase the stability of this setup.

* Some focus transitions were not triggered correctly when replaying
  events in a browser.

* The filename shown in a download dialog was not always correct.

* Downloads in a Vaadin based SUT could cause an exception.

* Internet Explorer 10 now reports the correct version information.

* Recording of drag and drop operations on CTabFolders in Eclipse 4.2
  was broken.

* In some cases the height of SWT List items was not calculated
  correctly, leading to the wrong item being addressed in case of
  large lists with many items.

* The new 'Extra feature' attribute qfs:label was sometimes not
  determined correctly in the presence of Swing JSlitPane or SWT
  SashForm components.

* Handling of an SUT with a combined SWT/AWT GUI was broken. Due to an
  error introduced in version 3.4.11 QF-Test was treating this as two
  SUT clients instead of one client with two GUI engines.


 Release Notes for QF-Test version 3.4.12
 ========================================

New features:
-------------

* Eclipse/SWT support was updated for Eclipse versions 4.2.1 and
  3.8.1.

* Support was added for Firefox version 18.


Bugs fixed:
-----------

* The modified connection mechanism still crashed Java WebStart on
  some occasions and has been further fine-tuned to prevent that.

* The option settings for "Errors that should be ignored" were not saved
  to the system configuration file.

* Timing for startup of Java WebStart based SUTs has been further
  improved to significantly increase the stability of this setup.

* Some focus transitions were not triggered correctly when replaying
  events in a browser.

* The filename shown in a download dialog was not always correct.

* Internet Explorer 10 now reports the correct version information.

* Recording of drag and drop operations on CTabFolders in Eclipse 4.2
  was broken.

* In some cases the height of SWT List items was not calculated
  correctly, leading to the wrong item being addressed in case of
  large lists with many items.

* Handling of an SUT with a combined SWT/AWT GUI was broken. Due to an
  error introduced in version 3.4.11 QF-Test was treating this as two
  SUT clients instead of one client with two GUI engines.
