SeeTest 20.2 Release Notes
Released 3 March 2020 ,  Previous release notes   

The Highlights:

 Object-Spy in Video Report for Failed Tests

From now we are storing in Reporter the Object-Spy data that was captured during the test execution of Appium Grid. This data is now conveniently available from one location which is the Video Report. Today users don't need to re-execute the test and debug it in Automation, just in order to see the application state during the test. Instead, they can debug it directly from Video Report, which contains in addition to video, also the steps, the device info, device log and all relevant info needed to debug in one location. This will reduce the investigation time, and will make video report much more informative and debugging more efficient.  

 Beta Versions Support for Chrome and Edge Browsers

Starting 20.2, we have added support for Chrome and Edge beta versions in Selenium Agent. The file supporting the functionality is automatically created. The admins can now add it to the selenium agent's browsers list so that users can use it, by using "latest" as a value for "BrowserVersion" capability.
