froglogic Releases Squish GUI Tester 5.1

Hamburg, Germany – 2014-04-16 froglogic GmbH today announced that Squish 5.1—a new feature release of the popular Squish GUI Tester —is now available.

Squish GUI Tester is the market leading, functional test automation tool for cross-platform and cross-device GUI testing on desktop, embedded and mobile platforms as well as web browsers. With more than 3,000 QA departments around the world benefiting from Squish’s tight integration with each supported GUI technology, teams are creating and executing robust, object-based automated GUI tests.

Squish 5.1 delivers several new features including:

  • Multi-touch Gesture Support now available in the Android, iOS and Qt Squish editions provides automating gesture testing on touch-devices. Gestures can be recorded and replayed from test scripts as well as managed, viewed and edited from the Gesture Editor.

  • The interactive ‘Object Not Found’ debugging tool greatly enhances the user’s ability to troubleshoot “Object Not Found” errors. When replaying tests, test execution can be optionally suspended and display an interactive dialog allowing users to further investigate the issue, select an alternate object, edit the object map and more.

  • New integrations for Bamboo, JIRA, TeamCity and Robot Framework.
  • Full Google Chrome browser support for Web tests (eliminating use of proxy server).
  • QNX and Android added as new target platforms for Qt applications. Achieved through the addition of an optional Embedded SDK which also streamlines builds for embedded Linux and Windows CE.
  • Major improvements to the Python editor used by the Squish IDE, providing more extensive Code Analysis and Code Completion in test scripts. The improved code completion includes functions and modules provided by Squish as well as code completion for functions and classes imported into test scripts using the standard Python import mechanism, often used include shared scripts the editor’s code.
  • Qt 5.2 and Java 8 support added.
  • Eclipse 4 support now available in the Squish Eclipse Integration

“We’re excited to release version 5.1 of our Squish GUI Tester. Squish 5.1 comes with several new features and improvements, for example multi-touch gesture support, a new interactive ‘object not found’ debugging tool, the Atlassian Bamboo and JIRA integrations.”

— Harri Porten, froglogic CTO
