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.

"We're excited to release version 5.1 of our Squish GUI Tester. Squish 5.1 comes with several new features, such as multi-touch gesture support, improved debugging tools, the Atlassian Bamboo and JIRA integrations and more" - Harri Porten, froglogic CTO

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 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 including Bamboo, JIRA, TeamCity, Robot Framework and more.
  • Full Google Chrome browser support for Web tests (eliminating use of proxy server).
  • QNX, Android and VxWorks 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

Squish GUI Tester supports GUI test automation across several technologies, including the Qt, QML and QtQuick GUI toolkits, Java SWT/Eclipse RCP, Java AWT/Swing, JavaFX, Windows MFC, .NET WindowsForms and WPF, Mac OS X Carbon/Cocoa, iOS Cocoa Touch, Android, and Web/HTML5/AJAX/Flex.

Standing out above other GUI testing tools, Squish gives test engineers the freedom to record and author tests using familiar scripting languages such as JavaScript, Perl, Python, Tcl, and Ruby. With extremely tight integration with each supported GUI technology, Squish gives testers unprecedented access to the application internals (data items, controls, widgets, etc.), enabling the creation of robust and stable GUI tests.

Squish and all the tests created with it, are fully cross-platform and work on Windows, Linux/Unix, Mac OS X, embedded Linux, iOS, Android and several RTOSes.
