Introducing the LambdaTest New Application Life Cycle Policy

Hey folks 👋 

In our ongoing effort to provide a seamless and efficient testing environment, we at LambdaTest are implementing a new Application Life Cycle Policy. 

As of 25th June 2023, any application uploaded to our platform will remain available for a duration of 90 days from the upload date. After this period, the application will be automatically deleted from our cloud.

This policy change aims to manage system resources more effectively, ensuring high performance for all end-users and customers. We recognize the importance of your applications in your testing processes. Therefore, we highly recommend maintaining local backups of your applications to prevent any disruptions to your workflows.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding this new policy, please feel free to reach out to our dedicated support team.

We appreciate your understanding and cooperation as we continue to improve our services to suit your needs better.

Introducing the Newest Features in Visual Regression Testing

We have rolled out the latest additions to the LambdaTest Visual Regression Testing cloud to enhance the UI quality assurance process and help you catch visual bugs early. 💻 

Here are some of the key features:

Git Baseline Branching for Storybook Builds

Key benefits:

  • Streamlined baseline build selection process.
  • Easy tracking of code changes and related builds.

Refer to our documentation: Git Branching Strategy in Smart UI.

Debug iOS Apps using Safari Web Inspector

Hey Folks 😃 

LambdaTest's Browser Testing now supports Safari Web Inspector on real iOS devices. You can now debug web apps in iOS Safari sessions with our native Safari Web Inspector.

In addition, here are some minor feature additions and bug fixes.

📌 In Real Device App Testing, you can now view the version of your uploaded apps in the app listing section.

 

📌 Previously, the app listing section in LambdaTest's Real Device App Testing displayed the time at which the user last synced App Centre with LambdaTest, rather than the exact time when the app was uploaded to the App Centre. 

However, we have now updated the app listing section to show the precise time at which the app was uploaded to the App Centre.
