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

Xamarin.UITest 0.8.0

  • Added short-hand overrides on all query / gesture methods: Query("MyButton") is equivalent to Query(x => x.Marked("MyButton"))
  • App life cycle v1 has been implemented. This allows StartApp to be called with AppDataMode.Clear or AppDataMode.DoNotClear. This works across all platforms Android / iOS running on XTC / local device / local simulator and AppDataMode.Clear is default. The only exception is for local iOS devices where NSUserDefaults are not cleared. Note that is is a potential BREAKING change, since iOS tests did not reset data before. To maintain this behavior, use StartApp(AppDataMode.DoNotClear). Methods for restarting an app will come soon, but for now, a new call to StartApp(AppDataMode.DoNotClear) can be used
  • SpecFlow integration has been added. When running SpecFlow locally or in XTC, default is to take a screenshot after each SpecFlow step. Opt out is available on ConfigureApp using the DisableSpecFlowIntegration method
  • Exception handling on other threads has been improved to avoid crashing the Xamarin Studio test runner causing "Unix transport error" RemotingExceptions
  • Location simulation is now also available for iOS through app.Device.SetLocation
  • Test assembly analysis has been moved to the uploader (for chunking) - so we can now also error out if no tests are selected due to included/excluded categories
  • Uploader includes assemblies in subfolders from upload
  • NuGet package improved with release notes and new icon
  • All release notes are now added to: http://developer.xamarin.com/releases/testcloud/uitest/
  • Cached test artifacts generation has been improved to be more atomic, should prevent most weird cache problems
  • Lots of stability / support / bug fixes
