The froglogic team is excited to deliver a major release of the Squish GUI Tester, version 6.6, the software quality tool chosen by thousands worldwide for cross-platform desktop, mobile, web and embedded application GUI testing.
Squish 6.6 offers new features, usability improvements and a number of bug fixes for all users of the product. Read on to discover the latest additions to assist in your automated GUI testing efforts:
Real-Time Remote Control of Virtually Any Target
New to Squish 6.6 is a fully-integrated remote control solution for improved testing of remote systems. In just one-click, Squish will display the screen of your remote system, and allow you to pick objects for inspection, thus easing test recording, scripting, debugging and test playback on your remote device. This functionality is not limited only to desktop computers — it has full support for mobile devices and embedded systems, too.
The new feature removes the need for additional remote desktop software, and by extension, alleviates problems of interoperability, compatibility and network setup associated with these tools.
We’ve written a how-to guide on using the remote control feature for GUI testing an In-Vehicle Infotainment system. Follow along here.
Enhanced Scripting Language Support
All Squish packages now include Python 2 and Python 3, ensuring full backwards compatibility with previous releases, while enabling the use of the latest Python 3 features. Squish users can select their desired Python version during installation.
Bundled Test Result Management & Analysis Platform, Test Center
Squish packages now bundle with the Test Center platform, a tool for comprehensive test report management and analysis. With a natural coupling between Squish and Test Center, users can push their automated test results right from the Squish IDE to Test Center to gain insights into an evolving project’s health.
Built to be lightweight with a convenient web-based user interface, all project stakeholders can easily access the platform right from a web browser on their computer, tablet or smartphone.
To get started with Test Center, an activation code unique to the tool is required. Get in touch with us to begin a free, fully-supported and fully-functional evaluation of Test Center today.
Qt for WebAssembly Support
Squish 6.6 adds support for testing Qt for WebAssembly applications in Firefox and Chrome browsers. Binary packages for Squish for Qt for WebAssembly are available in the download area, and are compatible with the official Qt for WebAssembly binary distribution.
