We’d like to share some of the updates on Awetest we’ve created to further support our customers’ cross-platform and mobile testing efforts. DevOps, along with Mobile, continue to remain one of the core areas of focus for the enterprise for 2015, and we have made a conscious effort to ensure that we’re incorporating the appropriate support for newer automation technologies like Appium and integration capabilities with CI platforms like Jenkins. We have also continued to expand the existing integration with HP ALM.  Below is a summary of the new features, enhancements, and visible changes included in 2.4 release.
