The medium upgrade QF-Test 5.4 adds support for testing applications based on Java 18, the embedded Chrome browser for QF-Driver has been updated to CEF version 95 and Eclipse/SWT 4.22 alias "2021-12" is now supported.
Electron applications can now be addressed via the far superior CDP-Driver connection mode, the options dialog has a search functionality and copy/paste of images is now possible for image check nodes and screenshot logs.
Several more new features and version updates are complemented by various bug fixes, some of which have a slight impact on backwards compatibility as documented in the release notes in section 6 below or online.

This QF-Test release also includes support for Android testing as a preview version.
Android testing can be automated with virtual devices using an emulator as well as with real devices connected via USB.
Test creation follows the same well-known patterns as the other UI technologies including direct recording of test scenarios.
The manual will guide you through the required Android setup steps. Feel free to take a look and please don't hesitate to request a free trial license.
We continue our popular special webinars. The webinar is free of charge but seats are limited. You will have the possibility to ask questions.
