2019–09–06: Botium Box v1.7.5 out now

We haven’t been lazy during the summer weeks - Botium is becoming more and more popular, it is featured on conferences and meetups worldwide, and we are getting lots of great feedback and input from our community!

We invested quite some work in fixing all known security vulnerabilities in Botium Core and Botium Box by deeply analyzing all involved components with the NPMJS Security Audit tools.

Apart from that, this release was mainly community-driven, we implemented lots of feature requests. It is now possible to work with Watson Assistant context variables, with some new logic hooks and a generic JSONPath asserter. We addressed some real-life-problems with new support for large Excel files and showing recently used objects on the Botium Box Dashboard. We have progress on test result visualization with new filter & sort options, and test failure visualization. And our Botium Wiki is getting larger and larger every day, and for learning purposes, we have a public Github repository with Botium Box sample projects showcasing connectors and BotiumScript!
