[QF-Test] QF-Test version 3.5.1 released
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. Should you be interested in subscribing to the full newsletter please send an informal email with subject "Subscribe Newsletter" to <newsletter@?.de>. 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. -- Gregor Schmid Gregor.Schmid@?.de Quality First Software GmbH http://www.qfs.de Tulpenstr. 41 Tel: +49 8171 38648-0 DE-82538 Geretsried Fax: +49 8171 3864816 GF: Gregor Schmid, Karlheinz Kellerer HRB München 140833
