(SYS-CON Media) - froglogic GmbH announced version 3.1 of the leading, cross-platform automated UI testing tool Squish for Qt, Web/HTML/AJAX, Four J's, Tk and XView applications. Squish is being successfully used in QA departments across the world in companies such as Reuters Financial Software, EADS, Siemens, Synopsys, Xilinx and Trolltech.

This new release of Squish comes with many improvements and new features for all Squish editions. The new features were mainly driven by the feedback of Squish's users and aim to make Squish even more powerful, robust and easy to use. A list of the major new features can be found at the end of this announcement.

"One of Squish's major advantages is it's versatility in regards to supported platforms and technologies while offering a tight integration into each supported technology. This new release comes with many general improvements as well as special improvements in each Squish edition such as improved support for Trolltech's Qt and Qtopia 4.x versions and support for new AJAX /HTML toolkits.", said Reginald Stadlbauer, co-founder and CEO of froglogic.

While strongly improving the existing Squish editions, new Squish editions broadening the scope of supported technologies will be released later this year. The first one will be Squish/Java for testing Swing/AWT/SWT/Eclipse/RCP applications which will become available in Q1 2007. Additionally froglogic offers new services to help customers being more effective and efficient with their test automation efforts.
