Version 6.6.2

Squish 6.6.2 is a maintenance release containing bug fixes for all editions of the product. See the following sections for a detailed list of all changes.


  • Fixed an issue which caused Squish to start incorrectly after installation into the root directory of Unix systems.
  • Corrected the port number limits for the squishserver --config addAttachableAUT command.


  • Fixed a problem which caused the Auto-Import functionality in the Python editor to be perpetually enabled, regardless of preference settings.
  • Fixed a problem which caused 0-byte ZIP files to be generated when exporting a test report from the squishide.
  • Corrected an issue which caused the squishide to function improperly when reading an empty Test Center configuration file.
  • Cancelling tests that start long-running subprocesses (for example using startaut to start an AUT as part of the test script) now works as intended.
  • Fixed a potential NullPointerException error when recording or creating verification point files.


  • Improved compatibility with the Qt for WebAssembly plugin in Qt 5.15.
  • Added support for calling methods of QObject objects when the method signature contains QTreeWidgetItem arguments.
  • Fixed compiler warnings pertaining to a private field d not being used when including the include/recordhint.h header.
  • Corrected a defect which prevented the object map in the csvtable/suite_rb example from being saved.
  • Fixed recording and replaying interactions on QtQuick Rectangle objects when using Qt 5.12 or newer.


  • Add support for applications using Java 15.


  • Enabled access to elements embedded into the content of Chromium-based applications using the <webview> element tag.
  • Fixed a problem with interacting with confirm, alert and prompt dialogs in Microsoft Internet Explorer, which led to an error being reported involving COM exception code 80020101.
  • Fixed a defect which caused Squish to fail automating Firefox versions prior to 57.
  • Resolved a problem with JavaScript evaluation answers being delayed by the browser. A potential side effect of this resolution includes object lookup errors being slightly delayed, and thus also delaying how long Object waitForObject(objectOrName) takes until an object is successfully found.
  • Fixed a problem with activating webviews, when typing into objects that live in different webview objects in a Chromium-based application.


  • Improved performance when recording and replaying.
  • Accessing WebView controls now works as expected on Android 10 and later.

Windows (native)-specific

  • Fixed a regression which caused blacklisted subprocesses to be hooked by Squish.
  • Added support for mouseDrag(objectOrName, dx, dy) operation on msctls_trackbar32 controls.
  • Introduced logging of any noticed AUT (sub)processes to the Runner/Server log of the squishide.
  • Fixed hooking into subprocesses when attaching to running applications (i.e., invoking startwinaut with both --port and --pid).

macOS-specific (Cocoa/Carbon edition)

  • Fixed handling of color profiles in screenshot verifications on macOS. Screenshot Verification Points taken in older versions of Squish would sometimes fail when testing with Squish 6.6 due to incorrect handling of color profiles. This mishandling would show as slightly wrong colors when comparing actual and reference images.
  • Improved error reporting in cases where mouseMove(x, y) failed.


  • Added Squish for Tk Windows packages for Tk 8.6.

Source Packages

  • Squish source packages now include all files required for Squish for Qt on QNX.
  • squishserver can now be built against a static Qt installation.
  • Fixed Qt symbol lookup on recent Linux systems by adding a workaround for malformed nm output.
