Testautomatisierung: End-2-End-Tests in agilen Softwareprojekten

Qualifizierte Softwaretests sind heute wichtiger als je zuvor. Allerdings nicht mehr am Ende der Entwicklungszeit, sondern als Teil agiler Prozesse fortlaufend im Projekt. Das schreit geradezu nach Testautomatisierung, auch für umfangreichere End-2-End-Tests. Qualifizierte Softwaretests waren lange Zeit Nebensache und Testautomatisierung kaum ein Thema. Schließlich testet jeder Entwickler auch selbst, warum also noch einen weiteren umfangreichen … mehr

FIT 14.6.9 released

Today, we announce the general availability of FIT 14.6.9. This version is a maintenance release comprising bug fixes and a lot of third-party updates. The Web Accelerator’s Image Compression produces smaller WebP results from PNG input files with few colors. Such files often carry graphical images that are more susceptible to compression artifacts. However, even natural … mehr

Bimodal IT: Neuer Ansatz „Stabilität vs Innovation“

“Never touch a running system” – das gilt vor allem für Systeme einer kritischen Infrastruktur. Denn hier stehen Stabilität, Erfahrung und Sicherheit im Vordergrund, nicht schnelle Innovationsschritte. “Running” ist wichtiger als “up-to-date”, solange die Sicherheit nicht beeinträchtigt wird – findet auch Roland Gülle, CTO von Sevenval, und schlägt einen neuen Ansatz für Bimodal IT vor. … mehr

FIT 14.6.8 – BrotliLeaks

14.6.8 is a maintenance release with improvements, bug fixes and third party updates. For the folks operating FIT servers, we are happy to finally ship a solution for the „BrotliLeaks“ issue causing excessive memory use due to brotli compression. It turned out that neither mod_brotli nor libbrotli were leaking memory. However, the way libbrotli malloc()s and free()s leaves behind a fragmented heap … mehr

FIT 14.6.6

14.6.6 is an optimization release comprising quite a few improvements and bug fixes. You will find improvements to many of our acceleration features. The HTML Minifier runs faster to bring down TTFB. The HTTP Cache supports Cache-Control: proxy-revalidate to satisfy more responses from cache. We have removed on-the-fly Image Compression. That means an image that is not cacheable will not be processed … mehr

FIT 14.6.5 & Web Accelerator with improved caching

Doing nothing at all is better than doing something fast. That’s what caching is all about. This release has a lot of features to avoid unnecessary work. FIT has had a HTTP Cache for a long time. But when the time-to-live of a cached resource has passed, the content had to be requested again. While it is … mehr

FIT 14.6.4 & Web Accelerator with Improved Image Quality Assessment

With this release we are proud to take our Automatic Image Quality Assessment out of beta. We have made three significant improvements to this Web Accelerator module. In order to find the highest acceptable compression ratio, AIQA ensures that the visual quality is not degraded. Therefore it is essential that the assessment score closely correlates … mehr

FIT 14.6.3 – New development features

April’s 14.6.3 release comes with a host of new tools for developers. It is now much easier to deal with JSON backends with the <json-parser> option. If set, the parse action will convert a JSON response into a DOM representation for easy manipulation. In case the backend sends an HTML response, the parser is chosen … mehr

FIT 14.6.2 – Stability and Security

FIT 14.6.2 focuses on stability and security. We have replaced our existing CSS minifier by an entirely new implementation. The CSS parser provides better standard compliance and is a lot faster, especially for CSS files with large embedded images. On top of that, the minifier produces smaller results. As part of our open source effort … mehr
