What’s new in Telerik Test Studio R2 2021:
- Improved Step Failure Details accelerate test debugging: One of the biggest challenges in test automation is understanding why a test has failed and how to quickly fix it. With the R2 2021 release, the Step Failure Details dialog receives a new UI and new features, making it easier for testers to receive insights about test failures. It also provides guidance throughout the test debugging process. An easier workflow helps users identify and fix failures using screenshots to validate expected versus actual results. The quality of screenshots has been enhanced, allowing zooming in on images and expansion into full screen. The Step Failure Details now include new technical documentation and suggestions about fixing the most common test failures.
- .NET 5, .NET Core and .NET 6 Preview support for WPF applications: In its continuous effort to help testers modernize their test automation initiatives and meet their testing needs across the latest technologies and frameworks, Progress has added support for .NET 5, .NET Core and .NET 6 Preview. Testers now have access to test recording and execution scenarios for WPF applications based on the latest framework technology in Telerik Test Studio.
- New license management options for large-team organizations: The new license management options in Telerik Test Studio help large-team organizations ensure uninterrupted testing cycles even within the most advanced software testing architectures. Enterprises with high-license seat demand can easily scale their testing operations across teams, countries and business units.
