See what's new in Perfecto 23.11 (released on September 10, 2023):
Manual Testing enhancements
Support for Korean as OCR language
Added support for Korean as an OCR (optical character recognition) language during manual testing. With this enhancement, when performing text analysis on a real mobile device, you can now select Korean as the value for the Language parameter.
For more information on text analysis during manual testing, see Perform text or image analysis.
Image injection enhancements
Image injection is now supported for Android apps using the CameraX API (
androidx.camera). Support includes QR code and barcode scanning using the most common scanning libraries, ML Kit and ZXing. If you require support for additional libraries, contact Perfecto Support.
CameraX support is available for Android 8 and later. Earlier Android versions may work as well but are not officially supported.
For optimal image injection and seamless integration, consider injecting the image before starting the camera activity.
For more information, see Image injection.
Scriptless Mobile enhancements
Added support for scheduling jobs to run at a specific day and time. With the scheduler functionality, you can now:
Create a job for a test
Set up email notifications
Configure a recurrence pattern by selecting the interval (such as hourly, daily, or weekly) or adding a
cronexpression and by specifying a start and end date and time
It is also possible to view all existing jobs at a glance , edit a job, and delete, enable, or disable one or more jobs at a time.
Watch this short video for a quick overview of how to use the Scriptless Mobile Scheduler. For details, see Schedule jobs .
Close or release a device
In enterprise clouds, Scriptless Mobile introduced a new option to clean a device before releasing it. While closing or releasing a device, a checkbox to Clean up device on release appears in the Release Device dialog box.
Previously, the devices got cleaned on release. This functionality changes the default behavior.
Users who do not select the Clean up device on release checkbox can use the existing data the next time they start working on the same device.
Reduced header size
For enhanced utilization of vertical space, Perfecto's header now appears with reduced height, as illustrated in the following image, which shows the old and new header height side by side.
