 Release Notes for QF-Test 4.6.0

New features:

* QF-Test now supports testing web applications in Opera browser on
  Windows, macOS and Linux.

* QF-Test now also supports the new Microsoft Edge browser based on

* Support was added for Eclipse/SWT version 4.12 alias "2019-06".

* Via the new methods print and println that were added to the qf
  module it is now possible to print messages directly to QF-Test's
  terminal from both 'Server script' and 'SUT script' nodes,
  irrespective of whether the SUT output gets redirected or not and
  whether there's a RunContext available or the code is part of a
  resolver during recording.

* The new command line argument -license.waitfor <seconds> allows
  waiting for a QF-Test license to become available during startup.

* For better conformance with regulations for protection of personal
  data the licenseserver.log file written by the QF-Test license
  server now contains hashes instead of user name, host name or IP
  address. This can be turned off via the new command line argument

* A "mouseButton" parameter was added to the various clickAtImage
  procedures in the qfs.autoscreen package of the standard library

* The new shortcut [Shift-Ctrl-Right] can be used in the parameters
  table of 'Procedure call' nodes to quickly create a forward - i.e. x
  -> $(x) - of the current variable value for the selected table rows.

* The embedded JUnit Jupiter library was updated to version 5.4.2.

Bugs fixed:

* Importing procedures from large test-suites could lead to an

* Closing QF-Test in check recording mode without killing the SUT
  process would leave the SUT in a completely unusable state.

* The command line argument -killRunningInstances could inadvertently
  terminate QF-Test processes on other machines in the local network
  provided those were started with -allowkilling.

* Auto-saving test-suites could accidentally trigger re-compression of
  images. For test-suites with many or large images this could slow
  down QF-Test noticeably.

* Reading the license file from a slow network drive could
  occasionally fail.

* Opening a test-suite in Windows explorer via the context menu of the
  suite tab failed in case the file name contained spaces.

* In rare cases waiting for a component during SUT startup could
  trigger a ClientNotConnectedException instead of the expected

* The procedure qfs.autowin.acrobat.saveAsText was updated for Acrobat
  version 19.12.20034.1161 and newer.

* Variables bound in the data driver of a 'Test-step' were lost when
  using "continue from here" inside the 'Test-step'.

* Output of the -licenseserver.dump* batch commands was missing
  information for the JavaFX engine. In addition to fixing that,
  information about Windows engine licenses was added, the "AWT"
  columns were renamed to "Swing" and information for engines that are
  not available in the server license is no longer displayed. These
  changes all apply to the interactive license administration tool as

* Closing a popup window in Firefox or closing a browser tab in any
  WebDriver controlled browser could sometimes cause the entire SUT to

* Frames in a popup window were not recognized correctly if the
  browser was connected via WebDriver.

* Performance for web tests has been improved, for both QF-Driver and
  WebDriver connection modes. The effects are very dependent on the
  specific web application.

* A workaround for an Electron bug now allows testing with current
  ChromeDriver versions.

* Arguments passed to an Electron application were accidentally
  prefixed with "--".

* Electron applications without native menus are now handled

* Cleanup of browser processes has been improved even in case a
  browser crashes at startup.

* Original third party cookie settings were not always restored
  correctly after closing a browser.

* In a web application 'Fetch text', 'Fetch index' and 'Fetch
  geometry' nodes could fail with an internal error when trying to
  determine the value while the target node got dynamically removed
  from the DOM. Now the operation is retried instead.

* Navigation to an anchor within the same page in JXBrowser is now
  handled correctly.

* Event replay for JavaFX is now more resilient against unexpected
  window focus changes on Linux, especially for menu item selections.
