Visual Studio App Center Test is the next generation of Xamarin Test Cloud! Read the blog post.

Xamarin.UITest 0.5.0

  • xut-console.exe has been renamed to test-cloud.exe
  • The Xamarin.UITest.Console NuGet package has been removed. Everything is (and has been for a while) contained in the Xamarin.UITest NuGet package
  • .DeviceIdentifier(...) can now accept iOS simulator strings for running on a specific simulator. Entering an invalid text produces and error with all the valid options
  • Support for [TestFixtureSetUp] has been added for Test Cloud
  • Android test start up time has been improved
  • Direct HTTP access to the test server is available through .TestServer
  • .Parent(), .Sibling(), .Descendant() and .Child() can all accept an integer index for the element - so .Child(1) is equivalent to the current .Child().Index(1)
  • The query language contains .WebView() for cross platform web view selection
  • The query language has .InvokeJS(...) for evaluating JavaScript in matched web views
  • Dynamic wait times has been added - currently used for longer default waits in Test Cloud and shorter default waits in the REPL
  • iOSApp and IApp now also have support for .Back()
  • Android .EnterText() has been converted from old setText approach to touching the input field and entering text
