Release Notes


  • Upgraded to Silverlight 4.0
  • Added support for the "Preview" bits of the March2010 Microsoft.Silverlight.Testing released on Jeff's website
  • Support for scenarios where the xap under test had a dependency on ServiceReference.ClientConfig
  • When a modal dialog is closed (Debug assertion, or message box). StatLight will now "scrape" the screen for text and information contained within the dialogs to be reported in the test results.
  • Added better "auto-detection" for what version of the MSTest version used. (So you don't have to specify the test provider and/or version)
  • Item # 10533: Command line option to configure StatLight to run specific test methods.
  • Item # 10005: - Full UnitDriven support.
    • A new test host was written to support UnitDriven natively. (Allowing you to run your async UnitDriven tests within StatLight)
  • Updates to the Xml report
    • Modified the way exceptions were reported - broke out the separate parts of an exception to not be a big string (Message, StackTrace, etc...)
    • Added support for other internal messages that StatLight could report
  • Added support for testing multiple assemblies contained within the same test xap.

Resolved Items from the Issue Tracker

  • Item # 10792: - Failure to parse AppManifest.xaml when a Xap was OutOfBrowser enabled
  • Item # 10170: - Angle brackets in command line usage examples a bit confusing
    • The misleading angle brackets in the example were replaced with quotes
  • Item # 10599: - MSTest tests now have support for the Timeout attribute
    • This required dropping support for the December2008 and March2009 builds of Microsoft.Silverlight.Testing. If you're still using one of these builds - upgrade :)
  • Item # 10479:- when the path to a xap wasn't correct StatLight now reports a more friendly view of the problem.

Other things to note

  • The source was moved to github (contributions welcome)
  • The internals of StatLight went through a pretty serious re-write.
    • Updates to memory usage (in the continuous mode scenario)
    • Removed a loop that caused a single thread to max out while the browser was running tests.
  • Added "Namespace" to the standard console reporting.

Possible Breaking changes to users

  • Removed support for the December2008 and March2009 Microsoft.Silverlight.Testing versions
  • If you wrote a project that parsed the Xml report file (say for, there were some breaking changes (hopefully for the better)
