Release Notes - MTest v.7.8.2 (October 2022)

Bug Fixes and Maintenance

This release mainly focuses on fixing bugs and improving robustness and user experience. These affect a range of functionalities in MTest, e.g. licence management, coverage and testbed generation.

  • #10129: The Lismo-based license management in MTest is now the same for Linux and Windows operating systems.
    The MTest Specification Editor is currently limited to use on Windows operating systems.
  • #8531, #10013: We fixed an issue where test sequence coverage results in the aggregated coverage were not correctly removed, even though the sequences were properly removed via the regarding menu entry. This particularly affected the deletion of test groups.
    In addition, Simulink coverage data is now also be deleted correctly when building a new testbed and importing a test sequence, regardless of the currently active simulation mode.
  • #8172: We fixed an issue where the bus' signals were duplicated in the interface if they were selected by more than one bus selector.
  • #8062: We fixed an issue with the automatic detection of multiple bus object instances at multiple outports.
    In this case the bus renaming is enabled by MTest.

We fixed an issue caused by command behavior changes in the latest Matlab version.
As a result, MTest now also supports Matlab 2022a.

 

 

Installation

  • If you receive MTest in one zip file, please extract it into a folder. Please keep all the subdirectories.
  • Suggestions:
    • C:\Program Files\mtest
    • x:\project\matlab\mtest
    • <MATLAB_ROOT>\toolbox\mtest
  • (Optional) Include the ...\mtest\bin directory into your MATLAB® path (only the \bin directory, all path setting is handled by MTest).
  • See also Chapter 2 of the User Guide.

In order to run MTest and MXAM at the same time, run their path functions in a separate step:

  • Copy the MTest_MXAM_SideBySide.m script from the demo folder of your MTest installation. For example into your MATLAB® startup folder.
  • Change the values of the ``mxamRoot`` and ``mtestRoot`` variables to your MTest and MXAM installation locations.
  • Execute the script manually or let MATLAB® execute it on each start.
  • You may now start MTest and MXAM in any succession.
  • See also Chapter 2 of the User Guide.
