[QF-Test] QF-Test Version 4.2.1 (plus patch p1) 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. QF-Test 4.2.1 adds support for testing SUTs based on Java 10. Thanks to the direct support for the mobile emulation mode of Chrome simulation of mobile browsers is now much easier. Even if we count the patched bugs twice, there are fewer bug fixes than new features in 4.2.1 which is a remarkable feat for a dot-one version. The full newsletter is also available online at https://www.qfs.de/en/about-qfs/news/newsletters/newsletter-2017-01-10-qf-test-42-released.html Should you be interested in subscribing to the full newsletter please send an informal email with subject "Subscribe Newsletter" to <newsletter@?.de>. Note: Today the release was updated to patch version 4.2.1-p1, now really fixing the JRE bin PATH bug on Windows (see last entry of release notes below) that mysteriously managed to escape its demise. The download page has been updated accordingly. Release Notes for QF-Test 4.2.1 =============================== New Features: ------------- * Testing of Java 10 based SUTs is now supported. * The embedded Selenium WebDriver framework was updated to version 3.9.1, ChromeDriver to version 2.35 (with support up to Chrome version 64), and Mozilla GeckoDriver to version 0.19.1 which adds support for Firefox 58. * Chrome can now be started in mobile emulation mode via the new 'Procedure' qfs.web.browser.general.openMobileEmulation in the standard library qfs.qft. * Proxy settings are now also supported for Firefox and Chrome with WebDriver connection. * When nesting test-cases via a 'Test call' node the new attribute 'Act like a procedure call' determines how exceptions are handled inside the call. The now obsolete backwards compatibility option "Don't treat test calls inside test-cases like procedures" has been removed. * The new 'Procedure' qfs.utils.waitForOneOfNComponents in the standard library qfs.qft can be used to wait for one of several components to appear. * The 'Procedure' qfs.utils.readTextFromFile in the standard library qfs.qft can now handle different file encodings via the optional parameter fileencoding. * Markers and breakpoints can now be made persistent by adding the doctags @breakpoint, @red, @green etc. See section 51.1 for further information about doctags. * The parameters errorlevel and newerrorlevel for the @rerun doctag are now optional. See subsection 18.3.2 for details. * The 'Database password' attribute of the 'Database' node can now be encrypted. * QF-Test now supports native full-screen mode on macOS via the menu entry »View«-»Fullscreen« and the keyboard shortcut [⌃⌘-F]. * On macOS the keyboard shortcut for reloading test-suites was changed to [⌘-R]. * On Linux systems the embedded code editor now supports pasting text via the middle mouse button. Bugs Fixed: ----------- * The PDF viewer now correctly rotates PDF documents.In Groovy scripts the rc.callProcedure call was broken when trying to use keyword argument syntax. * In Groovy scripts the rc.getNum method call inadvertently returned long instead of int. * In a few cases a broken system property set by QF-Test could interfere with SUT startup. * The bin directory of the JRE used for running QF-Test is now appended to the environment variable PATH for the SUT and not prepended as it was in QF-Test versions before 4.2. -- _______________________________________________________________ Get the most out of QF-Test - Support directly from the authors * Training & consulting: www.qfs.de/en/qftest/training.html * Phone & email support: www.qfs.de/en/qftest/support.html _______________________________________________________________ Gregor Schmid Development & Support E: support@?.de T: +49 8171 38648-20 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
