#redirect [[ Release Notes 19.x ]]
* STD-LIB: Additional Count/Search/Select and Collect actions (which take another action as match-function)
* Feature: freeze values are now expanded with variable- and inputPin values by default. The old behavior can be configured via the freeze-value menu.<br>WARNING: this may lead to possible incompatibilities with older suites. This expansion feature can be globally disabled via a flag in the project-flag settings page. Use the search function "''Search for expanded Freeze Values''" to check for freeze values which may possibly be expanded (i.e. which contain "$(...)"patterns.
* Feature: Datatype of a step's output pin can be changed iff the corresponding action pin has an abstract type.
* Feature: Inspector shows JSON encoding if possible
* Feature: new environment-variable initialization mode: "''Constant - Not Expanded''"
* Feature: option to add a timestamp to messages sent to the Transcript
* Feature: improved [[ProjectDifferenceBrowser| suite-difference browser/viewer]]
* Feature: [[ElementaryBlock_Element#Jython_Blocks_.28Bridged.29 | bridged Jython]] actions
* Feature: Freezevalue Rewrite Dialog (in context menu of the project); to search for and rewrite many freeze values in one operation
* Feature: Shrinkwrap checks for names of attachments being possibly used as freeze value.
* Bugfix: Some datatype elements prevented import-library unloading (due to false-positive reference finding). This only happened with types referring to a builtin type (eg. "Image"-type)
== Release 19.1 (June 2019) ==

* Feature: [[ElementaryBlock_Element#Python_Blocks_.28Bridged.29 | bridged Python]] actions
* Feature: empty test plans are treated like empty compounds w.r.t. error reporting (i.e. they report an error unless the "allow empty actions" execution setting is enabled).
* Feature: option (setting) to control if empty actions and empty test plans are to be reported as error or as inconclusive.
* Feature: search-option for invalid names in call-by-name statements
* Feature: automatic code rewrite when called actions are renamed
* Feature: Ministatus window and autohide during test execution
* Feature: optional autoresize when renaming steps
* Feature: new pin-menu functions to bulk-freeze all corresponding pins in the whole suite
* Feature: much improved Testsuite browser, which is now found in the "File"-Menu
* Feature: asynchronous [[Standard_Library#Event_Queues | event handling framework]]
* Feature: Java Plugin: improved support for applications using multiple Java technologies, especially providing access to the content of frames within a WebView context
* Feature: Java Plugin: element highlighting for JavaFX
* Feature: Java Plugin: default [[Java_GUI_Plugins/en#Skip_Mode|skip mode]] for Java Swing set to ALL_HYBRID to get new paths using all elements while providing backwards compatibility for old paths
* Feature: WindowsAutomation2 Plugin now supports Desktop-Mode in addition to Single-Application Mode
* Feature: WindowsAutomation2 Plugin: new Blocks in Library to start an application
* Feature: Selenium WebDriver Plugin: Recorder has scrollbars to indicate and change the position of the current view within the document

* Performance: Speed improvement in shrinkwrap library operation
* [[19.1 UI Enhancements | UI Enhancements ]]
* UI Enhancement: CTRL-e shortcut to freeze a selected pin from environment variable
* UI Enhancement: CTRL-p shortcut to toggle a pin's isParameter behavior
* UI Enhancement: additional menu items for debugging, to control bridges and to install "npm" and "pip" packages
* STD-LIB: The Trigger and Stream-NextElement action blocks had wrong typed output pins. These now adapt to whatever they are connected to (template type)
* Misc: Webtest: larger collection of different WebDriver versions to support more browser versions (e.g. Chrome 62-74, Firefox 52 and higher); to support more recent versions, additional driver versions can be added by the user
