Automatic Testing tool now available for KDE
KD Executor is a record and playback tool for Qt and KDE applications. In addition, it contains a test environment which uses this record and playback tool for testing Qt and KDE applications.
Today, Klarälvdalens Datakonsult AB released the first beta version of
KD Executor 2.0; our tool for testing and automation. We
are proud to make available a free version of this to the KDE community.
(Free as in beer, not as in speech).
What is KD Executor
KD Executor is a record and playback tool for Qt and KDE
applications. In addition, it contains a test environment which uses
this record and playback tool for testing Qt and KDE applications.
Why free as in beer and not free as in speech?
Klarälvdalens Datakonsult AB has always been very dedicated to Open Source
Software development, all of our employees are involved in KDE development,
and most have a record of open source involvement in the order of magnitude
of 10 years.
Much of our software is dual-licensed under the GPL and a commercial
license, and therefore it has been a great worry for us that we have
so far not been able to make KD Executor available under GPL.
We have reached the conclusion that this is likely never going to
happen, as this would make it very difficult, if not impossible, for
us to sell any commercial licenses, but fortunately we have found a
way to still make it available to our fellow KDE programmers.
Where to download it?
The KD Executor community edition is available from
To use it you need to set a license key (the version will expire in three
months at which time the final 2.0 version should be released; that

Mirror sites needed

it if people set up mirrors.
