[QF-Test] QF-Test 4.0.10 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>. 1. QF-Test Version 4.0.10 Released ================================== QF-Test version 4.0.10 is now available for download from https://www.qfs.de/en/qftest/download.html This release updates AJAX toolkit support for ICEfaces version 4.1 and PrimeFaces version 5.3 and adds automatic handling for a new WebStart security dialog that was apparently introduced in Java version 8 update 72. 2. Once again: Firefox Update Warning and Recommendations ========================================================= As already explained in the previous newsletter, Firefox version 44, which was just released, is _not_ supported by this QF-Test version. Due to changes in the native Firefox API QF-Test will not be able to embed Firefox 44 and higher. Early adopter versions of QF-Test 4.1 that will be able to drive new Firefox versions via WebDriver are expected within the first quarter 2016. This will also make previously unsupported browsers like Edge and Safari accessible to QF-Test. We strongly suggest that you clearly differentiate between personal use and test automation. For general use, take the latest, most secure version of your preferred browser. For test automation the aim is stability, reliability and long-term consistency. To that end we advise to install a dedicated test browser into a separate directory, either Firefox version 43 or, preferably, the latest Firefox ESR release, currently at version 38.6.0. See https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/organizations/faq/ for further information. Of course, automatic updates should be disabled for this test browser. 3. Release Notes for QF-Test Version 4.0.10 =========================================== New features: ------------- * Support for the AJAX toolkits ICEfaces and PrimeFaces was updated for ICEfaces version 4.1 and PrimeFaces version 5.3. * Automatic handling of security dialogs in Java WebStart and applets now includes support for a new dialog that was added in Java 8 update 72. * The new package qfs.autoscreen.fx in the standard library qfs.qft provides procedures for image based component resolution in a JavaFX application. Bugs fixed: ----------- * Exceptions in the toString method of a component in the SUT could prevent component recognition and lead to a ComponentNotFoundException. * During QF-Test startup or when saving or loading a file, the list of recently opened files gets updated. If that list contained entries from slow or no longer valid network drives this could take an unreasonably long time during which QF-Test was blocked. * The procedures in the package qfs.autoscreen now throw a TestException with detailed information in case an invalid algorithm syntax is specified by the caller. * QF-Test now correctly handles images with a width or height greater than 8192 pixels and handling of large PNG images is faster. * Occasional exceptions that were thrown when sorting a column in a result list have been fixed. * A search in the - rarely used - separate debugger window could cause an exception. * Using rc.overrideElement in a web based SUT could cause a NullPointerException in some special cases. * Thanks to miscellaneous performance fixes, tests for large web pages should run a bit faster, most notably on Firefox. -- Gregor Schmid E: gregor.schmid@?.de T: +49 8171 38648-11 F: +49 8171 38648-16 Quality First Software GmbH | www.qfs.de Tulpenstr. 41 | 82538 Geretsried | Germany GF Gregor Schmid, Dr. Martina Schmid, Karlheinz Kellerer HRB München 140833
