froglogic GmbH today announced that Squish 6.1, 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 6.1 delivers several new features including:

  • Visual Verification Points: Checks of the visual appearance of an application that includes all of object properties, geometries and pixels in a single comparison algorithm. If needed tolerances can be configured to deal with resized windows and changing content.
  • Window and Screen API: Cross-platform scripting interfaces for interaction with application windows and the display. Examples: resizing and closing of windows and rotation of the screen for mobile devices.
  • QtWebEngine Support: Qt applications using the Chromium-based QtWebKit replacement can test HTML content embedded into QWidget and QML applications.
  • And more: Improved Squish Installer, Cross-platform Clipboard Access, Object Snapshot, New Screenshot comparison method, Added support for Android 7.0 "Nougat", Integration with Android UI Automator API and bindings to objects outside of main application, Added support for testing iOS applications in the iOS Simulator of Xcode 8, ...

A detailed list of changes since Squish 6.0 is available at https://doc.froglogic.com/squish/6.1/rel-610.html.

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.

A free and fully supported evaluation version of Squish is available at https://www.froglogic.com/evaluate. For further questions please contact sales(at)froglogic(dot)com.
