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 3.5.3 released
 ===============================

QF-Test version 3.5.3 is now available for download from

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

This version introduces support for the AJAX toolkit ICEfaces, adds
support for Firefox versions 24 and 25 and further improves Java
WebStart startup. It also simplifies refactoring procedures and other
callable nodes. When changing the name of a variable, QF-Test now
offers to automatically propagate this change to all calling nodes.


 Next major version: QF-Test 4
 =============================

While support for the latest Java, Eclipse and browser versions is
going to be maintained for QF-Test 3.5, the focus of our development
is now going to switch to the next QF-Test major version 4. The
primary goals for QF-Test 4 are support for JavaFX as a new GUI engine
and for Chrome as part of the Web engine.

It is a bit too early even for early adopters, but you are welcome to
let us know about your requirements and we will keep you informed.


 New QF-Test videos online
 =========================

The rather outdated QF-Test video on our home page has been replaced
with a set of small, modern, introductory videos including voice:

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

More videos in this style are planned. Please let us know what you
think and what introductory topics you'd like to have covered. Your
feedback is essential for improving the existing videos and getting
new ones on track.


 Release Notes for QF-Test version 3.5.3
 =======================================

New features:
_____________

* Support was added for the AJAX toolkit ICEfaces.

* QF-Test can now automatically detect whether a web page is based on
  one of the supported AJAX toolkits and installs the respective
  resolver.

* Support was added for Firefox versions 24 and 25.

* The QF-Test demo video on the welcome dialog now links to the
  updated video on the QFS home page which is fully redesigned,
  including spoken explanations.

* It is now possible to copy and paste table cells back and forth
  between QF-Test tables and Excel or OpenOffice spreadsheets.

* When changing the name of a parameter in callable nodes like a
  'Procedure' QF-Test now offers to automatically update the variable
  name in all calling nodes.

* The standard library qfs.qft contains several new procedures for
  working with standard Swing dialogs based on the JOptionPane class
  in the package qfs.swing.optionpane.


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

* Stability of startup of WebStart based clients and compatibility
  with older WebStart versions was further improved.

* Canceling a long search did not work reliably and could even lead to
  a deadlock in some cases.

* Replace operations for the regular expression ".*" could lead to
  double replacements in some cases.

* The associated label for components was sometimes not determined
  correctly if the label was placed to the right of the component.
