Dear QF-Test users,

for the benefit of those that don't receive our newsletter the
technical details of new medium or major QF-Test releases are also
announced on this mailing list. My apologies if you receive this
information twice.

This medium upgrade adds procedures and a scripting module for
controlling macOS applications. Eclipse/SWT support now includes
version 2018-09, the 'Unit test' node handles JUnit 5 "Jupiter" tests
and in PDF documents an entire text page can now be checked in a
single step.

Please see below for detailed release notes.

Users with a valid Maintenance Agreement are entitled to this medium
upgrade for free. If you already have a license for QF-Test version
4.3, you can directly install the new QF-Test version. Future QF-Test
versions that are released within your maintenance period can then
also be used permanently without upgrading your license.

The full newsletter is also available online at

 Release Notes for QF-Test 4.4.0

New features:

* The new automac module can be used to control native macOS
  applications at script level. It is accompanied by procedures in the
  package qfs.automac of the standard library qfs.qft. See manual
  chapter 28 for further information.

* Support was added for Eclipse/SWT version 4.9 alias "2018-09".

* The 'Unit test' node can now run unit tests using the JUnit 5
  "Jupiter" engine.

* New text checks for PDF documents add the ability to check the text
  of an entire page with a single 'Check text' or 'Check items' node.

* GeckoDriver was updated to version 0.23.0 (for Firefox up to version
  62) and ChromeDriver to version 2.42 (for Chrome up to version 69).

* The arguments of TestRunListener methods can now easily be converted
  to Json objects and for a TestRunEvent a call to
  getNode().getComponentId() now returns the QF-Test component ID of
  the current step. See manual section 46.7 for details.

Bugs fixed:

* Auto-filling the comment of a procedure could accidentally drop
  @author information and other doctags.

* In special cases the call to rc.toServer in a Jython 'SUT script'
  node could cause a NullPointerException.

* The result of a 'Fetch index' step for first-level child nodes of a
  Tree or TreeTable component in a web application wasn't always

* With Internet Explorer a download triggered in a popup window could
  remain incomplete.

* Computing the name of an embedded Swing Frame based on the
  containing JavaFX SwingNode now also works with JavaFX 11.
