Quantum 1.23.0

Quantum 1.23.0 is now available. Quantum is Perfecto's automation framework, designed to give you everything you need from a framework with built-in, seamless Perfecto integration. It provides testNG integration for execution management, the ability to write BDD scripts, and a wide range of pre-built commands. Quantum is available as a free download from GitHub and can be extended as needed.

The new release introduces the following changes:

  • Upgraded QAF version to 3.0.0.

  • Added driver restart logic.

  • Integrated Axe Accessibility libraries and added the necessary methods.

  • Added device vitals utility methods in the DeviceUtils.java file.

  • Added reusable Javascript click and sendKeys event methods.

Other enhancements

  • Added support for email notifications. New users created in the latest Perfecto UI can now receive an email with their username and relevant onboarding information. Passwords will be shared by the administrator through a secure channel. If you are interested in this feature, contact Perfecto Support.

Resolved issues

  • Fixed an issue related to sensor instrumentation of iOS apps that use biometric authentication. With this fix, Perfecto now supports the iOS permission prompt that opens the first time the application uses biometric authentication. Previously, Perfecto would ignore the response to this prompt.

    For details, see Biometric authentication on iOS devices.
