Hello dear QF-Test users!
The critical vulnerability in the WebP graphics library, which affects many kinds of software products, including all browsers, has made high waves in the IT world over the last two weeks. Since QF-Test also uses this library, we first replaced it in version 7.0.6 and updated the embedded Chrome browser for QF-Driver on Windows in today`s release QF-Test 7.0.7.
In addition, we have a new training format for you: On November 20, 2023, we offer an expert day on the topic "Toolbox for stable component detection of web applications". In this online training, we will dive deeply into QF-Test and show you how to optimize the interaction with your web application. There will be time for exercises on special topics and your personal questions.
