Reusable Test profiles to save time on test configuration. In previous versions, you had enter test configurations such as load and VU settings each time you created a test. Now you can save your settings to a profile and use it in multiple tests.
Disabling transactions. Now you can disable transactions you wish to skip during test replay.
Simplified use of datasets using default databinding. Now you can specify a default databinding method for a dataset once instead of specifying it for every parameter using this dataset.
VU-Iteration-Random databinding method for enhanced Dataset utilization. It consumes dataset rows in random order.
Copyable object descriptions on the test case tree. Just select any object and hit Ctrl+C and its description will be copied to the clipboard.
More robust cookie parameterization. Now the value of the Set-Cookie object can be an expression consisting of several variables and constant strings instead of just a single variable (e.g., extractor or dataset).
Expressions in validation rules. Validators that now support expressions with extractors.
Verification of multiple iterations. It may be helpful to verify the 2nd iteration when a login transaction is marked to run on the first iteration only.
Session Image view allows inspecting individual images.
Image Comparer. Now you can compare recorded and replayed images which is helpful for our applications with dynamic images.
Status Bar in Test Case Tree displays the number and type of selected objects.
Now extractors and patterns can be Base64-encoded if necessary.
Compatibility with Windows language packs.
Option to exclude some MIME types and pages from the autocorrelation.
Reducing Test Storage Use. Increased efficiency of test storage utilization by more than 800%.
Simplified test storage management by merging settings for requests and response content into a single Purge Session Content property.
Easier certificate installation on mobile devices. In the previous versions this required proxy configuration. Now it is no longer necessary.
"Create Container" and "Insert Object" sub-menus groups on the test case tree context menu to improve usability.
All objects on the test case tree are draggable. In previous versions, you could only drag and drop session objects to reposition them. Now you can drag-and-drop all objects.
Context-sensitive Help in property grids. Property grids included a link to a pop-up help window containing an additional description of the property.
Now you can change the folder to store the SQL CE database files from the Result storage property grid.
Avoid false-positive warning due to recorded and replayed response size discrepancy. Previously when a response of a session executed on a load agent is configured to be truncated, it was flagged on Verification Tree with warning status. Now such sessions are marked with the unknown status.
Support for client certificates authentication.
Recording USD scenarios: Now StresStimulus will launch USD even if it is installed in a non-default folder.
Better control over the test workflow. Now we can limit the number of iterations for specific test cases so that they can stop before the test completion.
Simplified monitoring of load agents. Now load generator machine and security account information are determined automatically by the performance monitoring module.
Asynchronous requests. Previously, async requests in a scenario locked execution of a test case. Now this limitation was removed.
Automatic synchronization datasets with data sources.
