The Evolution of StresStimulus

  • V4.6

    The focus of version 4.6 is on test visualization, extending support for new lines of Enterprise products, and integration with other systems. We added Hex and Web views, visual replay of traversing test cases, and webpage screenshots on test reports. Dynamics CRM recorded scenarios are now supported universally. Visual Studio users can load tests applications that were untestable before by importing their StresStimulus script. [more]

  • V4.5

    V4.5, launched today, focuses on robust correlation, a versatile test workflow and extensibility. The test designer is upgraded to simplify manual correlation of test scripts and make them more accurate, supporting an even broader set of Enterprise applications. Several new object types such as Rendezvous, Delays and Skip to Next were added to more closely emulate real user activity. And now you can programmatically extend StresStimulus functionality and behavior by writing your own .NET code. [more]

  • V4.3

    4.3 was unveiled today, making major improvements to the test designer and adding a bundle of new metrics to performance reports. A consolidated test case tree replaced two partial trees, and support for nested transactions, loops and pages was added. [more]

  • V4.2

    V4.2, released today, brought the depth of performance reporting in load tests to a new level. It added multiuser waterfall analysis, activity charts and 90 more new features and enhancements. Now you can compare the virtual users' experience and visualize the elements most vulnerable to high load websites. [more]

  • V4.0

    V4.0 went live today with 50+ features. It brought all new performance analytics, reporting and added Linux/Unix server monitoring. Now users can complete performance analysis quickly and accurately thanks to hyperlinked performance views, displayed on a multi-tab UI which helps to quickly locate performance bottlenecks. [more]

  • V3.7

    V3.7, launched today, removed the guesswork from load testing thanks to a new test wizard. Killer autocorrelation saves 80% of the time spent on creating test script and makes almost any test ready to run out-of-the box. [more]

  • V3.5

    V3.5, released today, targets Enterprise QA and development teams. This update simplifies performance testing of complex sites by adding enhanced autocorrelation, support for loops, conditional transactions, sequential test case groups, and more. [more]

  • V3.0

    V3.0, launched today, ensures highest test fidelity due to smart auto-configuration technology and 50+ other features. It includes both Fiddler-integrated and standalone versions, log query builder, and support for Adobe AIR and Flash applications. Recording from any web browser, non-browser applications or mobile device is also now supported. [more]

  • V2.8

    v2.8, released today, brought data generators and functions for more versatile testing, robust XML scripting, and 50+ other features and enhancements. The auto-configurator and Parameter Finder save time during test configuration. Support for Windows 8, IE 10 and Fiddler 4 was added. [more]

  • V2.5

    v2.5 went live today with 60+ features. It brought the new Enterprise "look and feel" and made configuration of the most complex tests even easier. New features include transactions, XPath extractors, session and extractor validation trees, StresStimulus inspectors, auto-cloning parameters, randomized think times and more. [more]

  • V2.0

    V2.0, released today, introduced the Enterprise Edition. This version added more than 3 dozen new features such as distributed testing, multi-test cases, validators, parameterization headers and more. [more]

  • V1.7

    v1.7, released today, targets added support for Silverlight WCF binary. Now you can parameterize headers, any part of a value or multiple requests in one sweep, modify your test case in a treeview, schedule load tests, and more. [more]

  • V1.5

    V1.5, released today, can run tests of any size. Over 40 new features include extractors, parameterization control with regular expression and wildcard support, JSON and XML support, test comparison, health monitor, test verification, and more. [more]

  • V1.2

    V1.2, released today, enhanced browser cache emulation, added test case recorder and visual navigation replay for more realistic load tests and ease of use. [more]

  • V1.1

    V1.1 with over two-dozen new features and a substantial performance overhaul is available. V1.1 added support for browser and network mix, cache control, step-by-step execution, VU on-demand, extended reporting and more. [more]

  • V1.0

    V1.0 went live today. [more]
