Beta Release

Remember: beta software is intended for trial purposes only.

Katalon Studio 8.2.5 beta has been released with the following release note:

In restricted environments, unpacked extensions are disabled for security purposes. In that case, using the Spy, Record, and Smart Wait with Chrome might prompt this error: “Loading the unpacked extension is disabled by the administrators.”

This version supported Katalon Compact Utility and fixed the above message. More details can be found in Katalon Compact Utility.

Alpha Release

Remember: alpha software is not ready for prime time use. Like beta software, it is intended for trial purposes only and is certainly not production ready.

There is no current alpha release of Katalon Studio.

really like integration of testOps into the IDE left side bar. Great addition. Would be cool to also see individual tests run as well as executions. Cool feature
