The summer months at QFS aren’t boring, a lot is happening. QFS participated in the project “world of work at first hand” and really successfully in the event “city cycling” at Geretsried as shown at company events 2017. We had a wonderful time during our summer event where we rode camels and slept in an oriental tent.

  • The embedded Chromedriver was updated to version 2.31 (version 2.30 for Linux; with support up to Chrome version 60), and Mozilla Geckodriver to version 0.18 which includes support for Firefox 54 and higher.

Bugs Fixed:

  • A race condition in the load testing demo suite has been fixed.

  • A Groovy GString returned from a resolver method is now converted correctly to a Java string for further processing.
  • A regression in the performance of component recognition based on qfs:label has been fixed and performance of Swing tests has improved in general.
  • When executing manual tests based on the suite ManualTestRunner.qft the size and location of ManualStepDialog windows is now preserved.
  • A modal JavaFX dialog that got opened during replay of a WINDOW_CLOSING event could lead to a DeadlockTimeoutException.
  • The editable check was missing for JavaFX ComboBoxes.
  • Support for the JavaFX SplitMenuButton has been improved so that clicks on the main button and the arrow button are recorded differently.
  • Creating many JxBrowser instances could lead to a memory leak.
  • Waiting twice for the same web page to load did not fail as expected in case the page was not refreshed in between.
  • Playback of a selection event on a list in Firefox with QF-Driver mode now triggers a change event only in case the list selection really changes.
