SeeTest 20.1 Release Notes
Released 30 January 2020 ,  Previous release notes   

The Highlights:

 UX Performance: API to download HAR File

Ability to download the HAR file with REST API.  This ability only existed in offline mode for either manual or automated tests. Now users who run automated tests can automatically download the HAR file to be used with external processes, for example, as part of the CI/CD pipeline or with 3rd party systems, without the need to manually access the transaction report.

 Retry for failed Test in XCUITest & Espresso

To increase execution reliability, users will be able to rerun failed tests of XCUITest and Espresso.
All users need to do is send the retry parameter during the execution and if a failure occurs it will automatically do a retry. This substantially reduces false alarms and flaky tests, creating a much more reliable and stable testing execution environment.
