 QF-Test versions 3.5.1 released
 ===============================

QF-Test version 3.5.1 is now available for download from

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

Highly unusual for a "dot-one-release" but all the better, this
version comes with more new features than bug fixes.

The highlight of this release is newly added support for the AJAX
toolkits PrimeFaces and ZK, complemented by updates for RAP 2 and
Vaadin 7.

Besides the usual version updates for Firefox 21 and 22 as well as for
the upcoming Eclipse/SWT 4.3 "Kepler" the new 'Browser HTTP request'
node and improved support for applets and WebStart, specifically for
the latest JRE updates with increased security, are also worth
mentioning.


 Release Notes for QF-Test version 3.5.1
 =======================================

Important changes:
------------------

* The Jython version provided with QF-Test was rolled back to Jython
  2.5.1 because Jython 2.5.2 caused strange but reproducible problems
  with some SUTs. Jython is mainly used as glue code, so stability and
  non-interference with the SUT are far more important than
  compatibility with newer Python language features and modules, so
  the Jython version for QF-Test will remain frozen at 2.5.1 for the
  foreseeable future.


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

* New support was added for the AJAX toolkits PrimeFaces and ZK
  and support for Eclipse RAP was updated to RAP version 2.0.

* Eclipse/SWT support was added for Eclipse version 4.3 "Kepler".

* Support was added for Firefox versions 21 and 22.

* The new procedure qfs.swing.filechooser.selectFiles can be used to
  select several files in a multi-select enabled Swing JFileChooser.

* The new 'Browser HTTP Request' node can be used to replay HTTP GET
  or POST request directly in the running browser. In contrast to the
  existing 'Server HTTP Request' node, which interacts directly with
  the server, the 'Browser HTTP Request' can be combined with event
  and check nodes.

* HTML reports now contain pie charts to visualize the number of
  successful, failed and skipped tests. A click on the chart brings up
  a more detailed graph. The directory structure of reports has been
  improved by moving all images and screenshots to sub-directories.

* When started from QF-Test Firefox now automatically accepts SSL
  certificates for HTTPS connections, limited to the current session.

* Testlink support was updated for Testlink version 1.9.4.


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

* The initial connection sequence for applets and WebStart based
  applications had to be updated after security restraints were again
  tightened in recent JRE updates from Oracle. The stability of applet
  and WebStart startup should now be less dependent on timing and the
  procedure qfs.swing.dialogs.handleSecurityWarning is now able to
  handle all current security warnings for applets and WebStart.

* Exceptions caused by CSV or Excel files with inconsistent data are
  now handled cleanly.

* Updating components with item nodes could cause an exception.
