Lean Testing 3.0 officially released + win Jon Snow’s sword

Posted in: Product news by: Simon on:

Here are two recent Lean Testing news we thought you should know about:

Version 3.0 is now live for all users

We’ve added a ton of new features in version 3.0. Here are just a few of them:

Advanced permission management 

Administrators can now manage in great detail the permissions of each user type in Lean Testing. This update also marks the introduction of a new role of Beta tester, designed for organizations who wish to invite their fans to test pre-release versions of their software.

Selenium tests

Lean Testing can now run automated tests with Selenium. Simply upload your Selenium script and the system takes care of the rest!

Completely new UI

We’ve redesigned Lean Testing’s UI to increase efficiency, reduce the amount of clicks required to reach content, and better organize the different components of our system. We’ve also added more customization options, the ability to copy test cases and an export option for test run results amongst other things.

Win Jon Snow’s sword

Today we’re announcing an API contest with a really cool grand prize. We’re giving away Jon’s Snow’s Longclaw to whoever builds the best, most useful integration of our API, as determined by our users.

“Five years ago I saw Wufoo’s API contest in which they were giving away a battle axe and I loved their originality,” said Simon Papineau, co-founder of Lean Testing.

“Much like us, they were a small startup with a good product and wanted to reward their users with an amazing prize as a thank you for building tools and integrations with their API.

But Wufoo has set the bar very high. A friggin’ battle axe? That was so creative and fun.

I knew that if we were going to do something similar, it needed to be something even more badass than a battle axe. And what’s more badass than Jon’s Snow’s sword Longclaw? Absolutely nothing.”

Developers have until the end of the year to submit their applications for a chance to win the coveted sword. More details can be found on the API contest page.
