New in Rainforest! January 14, 2021

What was delivered to Rainforest during Cycle 6 - January 14, 2021

Every eight weeks, we host our "New in Rainforest!" webinar, where members of our product and development teams live demo and answer questions about the new features and enhancements we've shipped.

Rainforest Automation

  • Rainforest Automation now supports multi-level test embedding! Embedded tests are building blocks for tests, allowing you to build a set of test instructions that can be used over and over again. By using embedded tests, a single update populates multiple tests ensuring accuracy and lower maintenance. Previously only a single level of embedded tests could be used, now we support four levels of embedding, allowing much more flexibility in the building of tests.

  • The individual steps of embedded tests can now be viewed during preview. If an embedded test fails for any reason, you may pinpoint the exact step and make the necessary update.

iOS and Safari 14

  • We added the iPad Air on iOS 14 to our catalog of platforms.
    Not only that you can run tests on the latest Apple offering, but you can also continue to test older versions as we now support ios 9, 11, 12, 13 and 14 on iPad devices.

  • Safari 14 Beta on macOS Big Sur is now available.
    You will be able to stay on the cutting edge as we’ll continue to update as Apple releases new versions. Just select “Apple Safari 14 Technology Preview - macOS 11.0 Big Sur” when running tests to get the latest from Apple!

  • Both are available and ready for use. For a full list of Supported Web Browsers and Mobile Device Specs see here.
