froglogic Releases Qt Test Tool Squish 3.0 Beta

Reginald Stadlbauer writes "Hamburg, Germany - 2006-05-15 froglogic GmbH today announced the
availability of Squish 3.0 beta.

Squish is the leading GUI test tool for Qt-based applications
making it possible to create automated GUI tests for Qt applications
on different platforms such as Windows, Linux/Unix, Mac OS X and
embedded Linux. With Squish 3.0, froglogic didn't only add many new
and useful features to strengthen its position as the leading and most
used GUI testing tool for Qt applications, but froglogic also created
two new editions of Squish:

  • Squish/Web: Using Squish/Web it is possible to create and run test
    for HTML-based web applications in different web browsers such as
    Microsoft Internet Explorer, Mozilla/Firefox, Apple's Safari and KDE's
    Konqueror. Squish/Web maps the DOM tree of an (D)HTML document to
    Squish's object model. This allows for inspecting the whole DOM tree
    of a document using Squish Spy, record and replay high-level actions
    on any HTML elements and call and access the DOM API from within test

  • Squish/Tk: This new edition allows testing pure Tcl/Tk-based
    applications and also mixed Qt/Tk aplications using froglogic's Tq
    technology. Similar to Squish/Qt and Squish/XView, the complete Tk
    widget set and its complete API is accessible from Squish Spy and test
    scripts and actions can be recorded and replayed on all Tk controls.

"The new features and editions of Squish 3.0 were mostly driven
and inspired by our customers, their demands and feedback which
ensures that we deliver exactly what our users need and furthermore
strengtens our strong position in the cross-platform GUI testing

, said Regainld Stadlbauer, froglogic's co-founder and
Director of R&D Products. "It also was a pleasure working on this
new release with our growing and highly skilled development

During Squish 3.0's development phase many customers and evaluators
already started using the new version because of its major
improvements and new editions. So Squish 3.0 is already used in
production at many sites today.

The main new features of Squish 3.0 are:

  • The two new Squish/Web and Squish/Tk editions
  • Recording and running tests on sub-processes started by the AUT
  • Attaching to an already running AUT for testing
  • Built-in Hook for special application environments
  • Portable and robust Drag'n'Drop support
  • Improved synchronization in recorded scripts
  • Various improvements in the Squish IDE
  • Improved Qt 4 Support
  • Addition script APIs for testing
  • Optional distribution as binary packages
  • New utilities to inspect wrapper libraries and convert
    verification points
  • Many small improvements

Squish customers and evaluators can now find Squish 3.0 beta
packages in their download area. The final release is planned for the
beginning of June 2006.
