  • Eggplant Functional will no longer support Windows 7 starting in 2021.
  • Red Hat 6 or CentOS 6 are no longer supported.
  • The optical character recognition (OCR) engine was updated in Eggplant Functional 20.0. This change might require you to make changes to existing tests that use OCR.
  • A bug exists in the MySQL Connector for ODBC 8.0 on Windows 10 systems that causes Eggplant Functional to crash when connecting to an ODBC database. The crash typically occurs when connecting for the second time. See the MySQL forums here for any updates on the status of this issue from MySQL. The only known workaround is to use the older version 5.3 connector instead.
  • Direct connections to Android devices using ADB from Eggplant Functional are no longer supported as of 20.1. Instead, use the Android Gateway.
  • Scheduler functionality will be removed in a future release of Eggplant Functional, as this functionality will be available as part of Eggplant DAI.
