Release: LoadGen 2023-Q4 -

Release date

2023 December 20

We are excited to announce the Q4-2024 release of the LoadGen Suite, which brings bug fixes and new features to enhance the LoadGen experience. This release is focused on increasing the stability, performance, and user-friendliness of all LoadGen applications.

In this release, we have worked tirelessly to address feedback from our community, focusing on smoothing out any wrinkles that may hinder the LoadGen experience. We remain committed to delivering a product that not only meets but exceeds the expectations of our valued users.

We encourage all users to update their LoadGen Suite to benefit from these enhancements. As always, we look forward to your feedback to continue improving and evolving in future releases.

In our continued effort to streamline testing processes and enhance user control, we are proud to announce the integration of the 'Window Event Handler' feature into the Full Desktop version of LoadGen Studio. This new functionality empowers users to actively monitor and respond to unexpected window events during test executions. Whether it's an unforeseen error dialog or an unexpected prompt, the Window Event Handler allows for real-time detection and management, enabling users to define proactive mitigation steps within their test workflows. This addition not only bolsters the robustness of the testing suite but also significantly reduces the manual intervention required, thereby improving the efficiency and reliability of automated testing scenarios.
