silktestMicro Focus is proud to announce the release of Silk Test 18.5! If you already use Silk Test and you have a maintenance contract, you can upgrade to Silk Test 18.5 for free.

Silk Test is a fast, reliable, and efficient test automation solution for development, quality, and business teams who need to deliver software faster. Silk Test allows you to create cross-browser scripts that run on multiple desktop and mobile browsers without any modifications, which is key to reduce the effort for creating and maintaining scripts. As product software-delivery cycles increase in pace, quality tends to suffer with the introduction of defects and bugs – Silk Test helps find those bugs earlier in the life-cycle.

Highlights of Silk Test 18.5

Support for Virtualized Test Environments

You can now execute your mobile and web tests on mobile devices and browsers that are managed by Mobile Center or Sauce Labs. Just configure the Mobile Center or Sauce Labs integration through Silk Central and start testing on remote devices and browsers.

Enhanced recording on Microsoft Edge

Recording actions on Microsoft Edge now supports all functionality available when recording actions on Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox.

Other enhancements

In addition to the highlights described above, Silk Test 18.5 introduces a range of other enhancements. For a complete list of the features and enhancements introduced with Silk Test 18.5, refer to the Silk Test 18.5 Release Notes.
