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.

 QF-Test version 4.0.4 released
 ==============================

QF-Test version 4.0.4 is now available for download from

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

Highlight for Linux users is the support for 64bit Firefox on Linux -
the search for suitable 32bit libraries is over.

Also included are the newly supported AJAX framework jQuery EasyUI and
updates for Firefox 36 and 37 as well as for Eclipse/SWT 4.4 SR2.


 Release Notes for QF-Test version 4.0.4
 =======================================

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

* QF-Test now supports testing 64bit versions of Firefox on Linux.

* Dedicated support was added for the AJAX UI framework jQuery EasyUI.

* Support for Firefox has been updated to match the public release of
  Firefox version 36 and support for Firefox version 37 has been
  added.

* Support for Eclipse/SWT 4.4 "Luna" has been updated for the Eclipse
  4.4 SR2 release.

* The Java version for starting QF-Test's browser wrapper is no longer
  limited to the one QF-Test itself is using. It can now be set in the
  attribute 'Executable' of the 'Start browser' node. This makes it
  easier to mix 32bit and 64bit Java versions or to use the System JRE
  for the browser in order to support embedded Java applets.

* The special variable syntax ${qftest:32} (or its alias
  ${qftest:32bit}) can be used to test whether QF-Test is running in a
  32bit Java VM, with the obvious counterparts ${qftest:64} and
  ${qftest:64bit} to check for 64bit VM.

* The new command line argument -daemonrmiport <port> can be used to
  run the QF-Test daemon behind a firewall by specifying a dedicated
  port for the daemon's RMI communication in addition to the daemon
  lookup port that is set with -daemonport <port>.

* The default value of the option "Wait for non-existent component
  (ms)" is now temporarily set to at least 30000 ms during SUT
  startup. Adding a 'Wait for component to appear' node to the SUT
  startup sequence is still recommended though.


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

* When automatically updating references after refactoring,
  multi-level sub-item syntax was cut off after the second item level.

* The new command 'Find/Remove unused callables' treated procedures
  called only from dependencies as unused.

* The workaround for the Java 8 focus issues on Windows now handles
  the root cause instead of trying to keep the side effects under
  control.

* The standard library procedures in the package
  qfs.web.browser.settings now explicitly check the browser parameter
  for validity instead of failing silently with no effect.

* Chrome is now able to record 'Server HTTP request' and 'Browser HTTP
  request' nodes.

* Chrome could crash when navigating to a previously visited page
  anew.

* In some cases auto-expansion of tree nodes in Chrome could cause a
  deadlock.

* When creating a new startup sequence with the quickstart wizard for
  the AJAX toolkit GWT the version for the GWT resolver was
  incorrectly set to 1 instead of 2. The same problem affected
  auto-detection for GWT.

* The AJAX toolkit jQuery UI was not handled by the auto-detection
  mechanism for AJAX resolvers.
