Qt GUI test tool froglogic Squish 1.3 released

froglogic GmbH today announced the availability of Squish 1.3, the new version of the automated GUI testing framework for Qt applications.

Main new features

  • Support for JavaScript: In addition to Tcl and Python, Squish now
    also supports JavaScript as scripting language for test scripts. As
    with the other supported scripting languages, the complete APIs of
    Squish, Qt and the application under test are available and accessible
    from JavaScript. Squish uses the JavaScript interpreter from the KDE
    project, which is the most advanced and most actively maintained
    cross-platform JavaScript implementation available.

  • New platforms supported: Squish now also supports MacOS X and AIX.

Smaller improvements

  • Multiple wrapper libraries to make custom APIs of the AUT and
    extra components available to test scripts can be specified.

  • Configurable location of the object map enabling users to share an
    object map between multiple test suites.

  • New option to let the Squish IDE highlight the current line during
    test execution.

  • Improved user interface for managing AUTs and AUT paths.
  • Improved user interface in the Squish IDE.
  • More configuration options for access control of squishserver.
  • Improved error reporting including showing a script backtrace on
    script errors.

  • Improved performance.
  • Improved test data and object map script APIs.
