SeeTest 12.8 Release Notes
Released 21 August 2019 ,  Previous release notes   

The Highlights:

 Performance Testing Automation, Video Report, and Reports Repository

In version 12.7 we announced the first installment of our much anticipated UI Performance Testing offering - manual testing.
In Version 12.8 we have significantly expanded this offering and we are happy to announce its second installment.
The second installment includes automation, 
transaction video reports and a report repository in Reporter: 

Automation: Performance transaction support is also available for automated testing in addition to manual testing.
This enables large scale performance transaction analytics directly from your CI/CD pipeline. 

Video in Transaction Report: Performance transaction report now includes a video of the transaction to facilitate quick debugging.

Reporter: Reporter now includes Transaction View, a repository for all performance transaction reports.
This enables comparing and seeing trends from previous reports/versions for the same transaction.

 Multi - Regions Selection

Customers who have multiple geographical regions can now easily select the geographical regions of a resource
(e.g. device, emulator, simulator) directly from the
user interface or via automation tools.

  • iOS 12.4
  • Android Q (10) Beta 5

Notes and Known Issues

  • Selenium Agent: Before updating the Selenium agent 12.8 on macOS Mojave, you need to first uninstall the current installation and then install version 12.8. 

  • HSQLDB end of life: Cloud Server does not support the HSQLDB database, and supports  only the PostgresSQL database

  • Due to Apple's announcement re discontinue of iTunes, we reinforce our recommendation that DHM will be deployed on macOS. This will guarantee support for new
    Apple models and iOS versions and opens up the full functionality of iOS (remote debugging, XUITest, Appium native, etc.).

New Features

  Multi-Region Selection 

Cloud Admins can configure multiple regions under the same Cloud environment. This will allow them to better manage the Cloud resources such as Users, Projects and Devices.

  Cleanup Improvements

Allow to set default device configurations such as region & language, Wifi & proxy settings for Android devices (iOS also supported) - cloud admin will be able to define the default configurations so users will get by default the right parameters to ensure new sessions will have the right default configuration.

  Support Android devices with Passcode

Support Android devices with Passcode, which improves devices security in a user transparent way (user does not need to know the passcode).

  Selenium Proxy in selenium agent 

Selenium Proxy in Selenium agent allows the configuring of proxy servers for the Selenium nodes supported in manual and automation sessions. 

  Enable to increase the Max application file size

Allow increasing the Max application file size to 1,000MB (by default the max is 500MB). This enables the cloud admin to increase the default size.

  Reporter Multi-Project Dashboard for admins - Reporter dashboard allows cloud admin to see all projects at once via Admin Dashboard.
