[QF-Test] QF-Test version 3.5.2 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 version 3.5.2 released ============================== QF-Test version 3.5.2 is now available for download from http://www.qfs.de/en/qftest/download.html What mostly kept us busy since the last release was WebStart and applets and the way Oracle keeps tightening security by means of ever more officious warning dialogs which are now handled automatically even before the SUT connects to QF-Test. Besides version updates for Firefox 22 and 23 as well as the final release for Eclipse/SWT 4.3 "Kepler", an update for Testlink 1.9.7 and fine-tuning for ZK and Primefaces, there also are some minor new features and a handful of bug-fixes. Release Notes for QF-Test version 3.5.2 ======================================= Important changes: ------------------ * Handling of the security dialogs for Java WebStart and applets had to be changed again. Security warnings are now closed implicitly before connecting to QF-Test and it is possible to permanently accept a certificate during this step. The details for this operation can be configured via the procedure qfs.swing.startup.setSecurityDialogSpec. The default delays for WebStart and applets also changed as documented in the procedure qfs.swing.startup.setDelays. New features: ------------- * Eclipse/SWT support was updated for the final Eclipse version 4.3 "Kepler". * Support was added for Firefox version 23 and updated for version 22. * Testlink support was updated for Testlink version 1.9.7. * 'Wait for component to appear' nodes now automatically handle waiting for the respective GUI engine in addition to implicitly waiting for the SUT to connect. * Nodes for 'Procedures' and 'Packages' marked as "@deprecated" are now crossed out in the tree view. * The new procedure qfs.web.general.integrateFirebug in the standard library qfs.qft loads Firebug Lite into the running browser which can be very helpful when writing resolvers. * The keyboard shortcut [Shift-Control-I] can now be used to quickly pack one or more steps into an 'If' sequence. Bugs fixed: ----------- * The Windows executables qftest.exe and qftestc.exe failed to read the configured Java version, memory and language from the Windows registry. * Saving test-suites and run-logs and other IO operations are now significantly faster on slow network shares. * When changing the currently executed node via 'Continue execution from here' in the test debugger, QF-Test is now smarter in keeping as much of the current state of execution as possible, including the previously broken case when continuing from a 'Procedure' node. * On Linux systems Firefox would crash when terminated while a dialog was still showing. * The recently added support for ZK and PrimeFaces was fine-tuned and fixes subtle problems with specific Trees, TreeTables and other components. * Associated labels of Swing components, recorded as "qfs:label" extra feature, are now used for generating the 'Id' attribute. For web and SWT components this was already the case. * In the QF-Test daemon DaemonTestRunListener instances were not unregistered correctly which could slow down daemon execution after a call like qftest -batch -calldaemon -verbose ... * The SUT can now implement an RMIClassLoaderSpi without interference from QF-Test's RMI communication. -- 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
