Hi there! 🎃
As we go deeper into Fall and bid farewell to October - we'd like to reminisce and share some of the great things Testkube was up to for the past month:
What's new for Testkube?
🚀 Testkube 1.15 is here - What's New?
Our latest release may seem small, but it introduces A LOT of fixes that improve tester and developer efficiency. Here are some of the highlights:
- New Executor - As usual with every release, we've introduced yet another tool. This time we're expanding on our existing JMeter executor so you can now run distributed load tests. Check out how in our documentation.
- Improved Monitoring - We've added test labels and included Test Execution URLs to Prometheus, added support for Go templating in Webhooks, and Slack notifications now include direct links to the Dashboard for test and test suite executions.
- Pre-Built Executor Fixes - Test results now support the JUnit XML format and directories as sources.
- Friendlier Storage - You can now access MinIO and get the artifacts for specific tests without having to know the execution ID for each of them.
🚂 Explore how Jenkins (coupled with Testkube) can simplify your testing process within your CI/CD pipelines 🚂
Testing is a critical part of any CI/CD pipeline as it ensures software quality - so we're embarking on teaching you how to make the most of your current setup to enhance your testing process.
If you use Jenkins, we recently wrote an article to walk you through the process of integrating it with Testkube - check it out here.
Test Automation in CI/CD shouldn't be hard!
