We are excited to announce that SpecFlow 3.9 is finally publicly released. In this release we fixed several bugs and tried to solve a long running issue with SpecFlow and Mac OS.

A big Thank You to all our amazing contributors!

As always this release would not be possible without you.

SpecFlow Suite 3.8

3.8
Afflected Products: SpecFlow, SpecFlow.ExternalData, SpecFlow+ LivingDoc, SpecFlow+ Runner

We are excited to announce that SpecFlow 3.8 is finally publicly released. The biggest new feature we added in this version is a dedicated API for additional output (text and files) for your scenarios.

Yes, you could this before by using the APIs of various test runners, but you had to have prior knowledge on how to use them. Also, having an abstraction layer makes it possible for us to hook into it and display further valuable information. The first thing we did with this new extension point is to bring the output to SpecFlow+ LivingDoc.

Test Output in SpecFlow+ LivingDoc

You can learn more about the Output API and its usage in our documentation. To use it, you simply update the SpecFlow NuGet packages to the latest version, and you are ready to go.

We developed this because our community upvoted this feature on our feature request list. The feature request became very popular; therefore, we decided to adjust our backlog priorities to implement this swiftly and bring more value to our users.

A big Thank You to all our amazing contributors!

As always this release would not be possible without you.

SpecFlow Suite 3.7

Afflected Products: SpecFlow, SpecFlow.ExternalData, SpecFlow+ LivingDoc, SpecFlow+ Runner

What is new?

We were finally able to fix a major bug that happens during the parallel execution of scenarios and was a problem for a lot of users. Parallel execution on feature-level (one scenario of multiple features is running in parallel) should work now without problems. If you have still one, please create an issue on GitHub.

A big Thank You to all our amazing contributors!

As always this release would not be possible without you.
