 QF-Test Version 4.1.1 Released
 ===============================

QF-Test version 4.1.1 is now available for download from

    https://www.qfs.de/en/qf-test/download.html

Besides fixing several bugs, this release also includes a number of
new features, among them a handy new filter for quickly locating
test-suites in large projects and improved key bindings for macOS.


 Release Notes for QF-Test Version 4.1.1
 =======================================

New Features:
-------------

* The project view now comes with a filter at the top of the tree that
  matches on test-suite names and limits the hierarchy accordingly,
  which is very useful for quickly finding test-suites in large
  projects.

* On macOS all keyboard shortcuts should now be conforming to Mac
  standards and use Mac-friendly modifier keys.

* Selenium WebDriver was updated to version 3.0.1.

* The documentation and samples for keyword driven testing have been
  extended with a new example for behavior driven testing (BDT).

* The parameters for the @rerun doctag were extended to include a
  newerrorlevel=keep option and the new keepfirst parameter.

* The 'Execution timeout' attribute is now also available for
  'Test-step' nodes.


Bugs Fixed:
-----------

* QF-Test did not start if the Java version for QF-Test was still
  instrumented by an older QF-Test version (pre 4.1). Though JRE
  instrumentation has been deprecated for many years, such a case is
  still possible. QF-Test now detects that situation and helps with
  deinstrumentation of the JRE.

* The test for busy panes was missing when performing a check using
  the generic retry mechanism introduced in QF-Test 4.1.0.

* When interactively selecting a component for an event node the
  current target was not pre-selected in the chooser dialog.

* Trying to update failed checks from the error list after closing the
  originating run-log caused an unexpected exception.

* When using the databinder.bindList API for performing data-driven
  testing, QF-Test now ignores empty lists instead of running a single
  iteration without data.

* When importing test results into TestLink, skipped test-cases are
  now correctly reported as skipped.

* The former WebDriver API was renamed to WebDriverConnection to avoid
  confusion with Selenium's WebDriver object.

* The error message for expiration of a -timeout <milliseconds>
  command line argument of a batch call now clearly refers to the
  -timeout <milliseconds> argument instead of the root node of the
  test-suite.

* In large projects editing component IDs in parameter tables no
  longer causes delays while QF-Test is looking for the component to
  highlight.

* When searching through a project with an invalid regular expression
  many errors messages were shown instead of just one.

* Short timeouts for visible false checks on components were not
  honored.

* If the option "Instrument AWT EventQueue" is active, QF-Test now
  establishes a connection with the awt:security engine in case Java
  WebStart shows an authentication dialog. Please note that in such a
  case the 'GUI engine' attribute of the 'Wait for client to connect'
  node must be set to awt:security.

* Class resolution for AJAX toolkits was broken for some special
  cases.

* The editable check didn't work for TextFields in the PrimeFaces
  toolkit.

* When recording a click that triggers an alert dialog in WebDriver
  mode, the order of the recorded events was not always correct.

* Auto-detection for AJAX toolkit resolvers has been improved. It now
  prints concise messages to the terminal and cleanly handles the case
  when no toolkit is detected.
