4. Release Notes for QF-Test Version 4.7.0

New Features

  • Testing of Java 13 based SUTs is now supported.
  • Support was added for Electron 6.
  • Support was added for OpenWebStart.
  • The embedded Chrome browser used for QF-Driver mode was updated to CEF version 73.
  • The Opera browser is now supported up to version 62 which uses a different scheme for the associated WebDriver.
  • For web testing on Windows in WebDriver mode, display scaling is now taken into account at Windows level as well as for browser-based zooming.
  • The new method rc.getPropertyGroupNames lists the names of non-special property groups for which values are bound.

Bugs Fixed

  • The profile directory for testing with Microsoft Edge had the wrong name.
  • Closing a popup window could crash the Opera browser.
  • Text input for Microsoft Edge was always positioned at the end of the field.
  • A possible deadlock in Internet Explorer when loading resources for a web page was fixed.
  • Stopping a browser controlled via WebDriver could sometimes cause an (otherwise harmless) error message in the QF-Test terminal.
  • When using a custom ItemResolver for JavaFX clicks to the center of the item were not replayed correctly.
  • On Linux SWT instrumentation was performed even when not required.
