Let’s test Ubuntu NOW!

Making Ubuntu better, if possible

LDTP 1.5 is out (and in Jaunty)

with 5 comments

As announced in the LDTP mailing list, LDTP 1.5 is out.

This new release contains some nifty new features:

  • Log all failures and take screenshot on each failure
  • Create default log file in /tmp/ldtp-$USER
  • Screenshot using pygtk, instead of ImageMagick import, when possible
  • Added new api – appundertest

We are specially happy for the screenshot feature, for which we had specially pushed for, to have better reporting options. You can see an example of a report at the QA site.

Also, if you’re running Jaunty, you can start using LDTP 1.5 new features with ubuntu-desktop-testing, using the reporting_ldtp_1.5 branch (soon to be merge into trunk), as LDTP 1.5. is already in the archive 🙂

Thanks Nagappan and the rest of the LDTP dev team for the best LDTP release to date!

  1. Great news Ara 🙂

    I noticed the screenshots links are local file:/// links. I’m guessing that’s not the intended behavior ?

  2. Fabian, thanks for noticing.
    Well, it is the intended behavior if and only if tests were running in the same server containing the screenshots.

    I will change the tests to point to relative paths.

    • Jason, Aaron post can be more or less relevant or valid, I agree in some of the things he says, and some I don’t.
      But in this particular case, my post is part of a blog called “Let’s test Ubuntu now!”, therefore, it is supposed that all content is related to Ubuntu somehow, and I can skip saying Ubuntu all the time, if the meaning can be guessed from the context.
