Beta 0.3 Release In Design
Feedback on version 0.1 has been tremendous. As a result of community response, we are enhancing the Session Tester user interface, feature set and session file management. Our focus will be to create a lightweight, interactive testing environment for exploratory testing. (Much like an IDE for programming.) This means we will have more powerful text editing ability, including the ability to view and edit session files for cleanup, and for use during debriefs. We will also add more user configuration options so that users can adapt the tool to their own interpretation of SBTM. We have had great feedback on the test execution references such as the cheat sheet and idea primer, so we will continue on in this vein with that aspect of the tool. Creating user-defined cheat sheets to access at your finger tips is important. We will also look at usability, including hotkeys, workflows and session file management.
Beta 0.21 Release
Session Tester users are urged to upgrade to beta version 0.21. It has some bug fixes that needed to be looked at prior to the 0.3 release. This is a minor release dealing with a frustrating bug found by the testing community. Thanks to Jared Quinert and Ben Kelly for their hard work tracking down the issue and testing the application.
Beta 0.2 Release
Beta version 0.2 was released with installers for Mac and Windows, some bug fixing and light enhancement exploration. This is a minor release. We decided to cut the line and focus on redesign work for 0.3. There were some behind-the-scenes changes to make things easier for a growing development team. Thanks to developer Chris Garrett for driving this release.
Beta 0.2 Release Under Development
Thanks to the community for great feedback on version 0.1. Beta version 0.2 is now under development. We are working on packaging and installers for Mac and Windows, some bug fixing and light enhancements.
Beta 0.1 Release
What Does it Do?
Session Tester is an exploratory testing tool for managing and recording Session-Based Testing. Session Tester has a timer so you can keep your test sessions at the desired length, and it provides an easy way to record session notes. Notes are stored in an XML format that can be converted to HTML, or be transformed into whatever form you wish.
