New FlexUnit version released

Alistair announced it this afternoon: a new version of FlexUnit has been released and hosted on opensource.adobe.com.

And i’m very pleased to be part of the team which built it and see this update released to the community.
A lot of people in Adobe Consulting have been involved in this update, from both the technical and the User Experience practice to have the best tool possible.

Amongst other features, and a nicer user interface, we also added some features to the API. Ali will publish soon a full release note but here is a sneak peak:
– some assertions have been added to the API, related to regular expressions, and strings.
– some bugs have been fixed.

But the major changes have been on the user interface, helping the developer to easily navigate through the test suite, to identify where his code breaks, why it breaks.

From filtering test cases, by pretty printing the stack trace, to extracting the failure location, this new UI has been built to streamline your daily testing.

    Hi Xavier,

    It was nice meeting you just before leaving MAX. Good also to see you are part of the team behind Flex Unit. We are using it quite extensively for testing ILOG Elixir components. One thing that we are missing would be an extension that would allow to make visual unit tests. Meaning a way for us to compare the rendering of a component with a reference image. So that we can do unit check about the various states of a component. Is this something your are planning at some point?

    Thanks
