Leading Qt GUI Test Tool Squish 2.0 beta1 released

Reginald Stadlbauer writes "Hamburg, Germany - 2005-08-12 froglogic GmbH today announced the
availability of a first beta of Squish 2.0, the new version of the
most advanced automated GUI testing framework for Qt applications.

The main new features of Squish 2.0 are:

  • Support for Trolltech's new Qt 4.0 on all platforms has been added
    in addition to Qt 2.3/Embedded, Qt 3.x (all platforms) support. The Qt
    4.0 support is equal to Qt 2.3 and 3.x support including event
    compression for new complex widgets such as the item view widgets.
  • Major speed improvements when executing tests or using Squish Spy.
  • Major improvements for Squish on MacOS X.
  • Completely reworked and extended documentation.
  • Major usability improvements in Squish Spy when inserting
    verification points for object properties and screen shots.
  • Also non-QObject objects such as list view and menu items can be
    accessed in Squish Spy now to allow inserting verification points for
    such objects without the need of writing script code.
  • Improved verification point handling with additional script API and
    a verification point editor in the Squish IDE.
  • Support for executing and controlling/testing multiple applications
    from one test script. This is specially useful when testing the
    interaction between different applications or multiple instances of
    the same applications such as in a client/server environment.
  • New script API for advanced synchronization points such as waiting
    for a condition to become true (e.g. the value of a property changes,
    an object becomes visible, etc.)
  • New script API to install event handlers. This allows to e.g. deal
    with error messages popping up unexpectedly during a test run.
  • Improved error handling and diagnostics.

packages in their download area. For more information about Squish and
