Where are release notes for ReadyAPI / SoapUI?

Spoiler
I'm using the SoapUI part of ReadyAPI, and in our lab we have version 1.4.0.
Because of potential compatibility issues, I'm not free to just upgrade it to 1.8.0 without getting buy-in from others.
I would like to know what new features and bug fixes there are in the newer versions.
Can someone please direct me to release notes that document this for all the versions newer than 1.4.0?

Thanks.

Re: Where are release notes for ReadyAPI / SoapUI?

I suggest that links to the release notes for each version be added to the download page.  That's where I'm used to finding them on other web sites, so that's where I looked for them here.

 

Thank you for your patience

That is true.

But that is already there, it seems.

I go to
https://www.soapui.org/
Where I see
SoapUI NG 1.8 released! with link read more and follow it where you can find the same link provided by @HKosova.

Re: Where are release notes for ReadyAPI / SoapUI?

soapui.org?  I didn't even know that existed.  What's the relationship between smartbear.com and soapui.org?

Do I have to look at two completely separate web sites to find everything I need for Ready!API?

 

I went to smartbear.com, clicked on Support, chose Downloads, and then on Ready!API.

That took me to https://support.smartbear.com/downloads/readyapi/

I don't see any link to the release notes there.

Your question itself has soapui. At, least you come to know now. soapui is the base product and being acquired by eviware and again being acquired by smartbear.

Though it is SmartBear, soapui is very well know brand name, soapui.org continue to exists, I believe. There open source edition's core documentation & downloads available. Apart from it, Pro tools can also be downloaded from there.

Re: Where are release notes for ReadyAPI / SoapUI?

I think the lesson to take here is that there are people such as myself who learn first about Smartbear and Ready!API, and see SoapUI just as being a part of that.  I had no idea there was a soapui.org, so if we're going to depend on finding things there, there should be links to it in appropriate places in the smartbear.com web page.

Soapui.org does exist, but it is not necessary to find information about Ready! API.

 

If you navigate to smartbear.com>Products>SoapUI NG Pro, the release notes are available under the "What's New" tab.

Re: Where are release notes for ReadyAPI / SoapUI?

Indeed there is some valuable material under the "What's New" tab.  In particular, I commend whomever decided to create that brief video tutorial about capturing HTTP traffic ("API Discovery") to create a test case.  Short videos like that are a great idea.

 

But . . .

This page mentions only version 1.7, and only mentions a couple of the many things that went into 1.7.  It's good marketing material, but not good technical material.  1.8 has already been released, but isn't mentioned, nor is there any information whatsoever on earlier releases.  Compare what you find there to the technical information at http://readyapi.smartbear.com/about/release_notes/v170/soapui.

 

And

The download page (https://support.smartbear.com/downloads/readyapi/ for Ready!API, and others for other products) has no link to either of these pages of release notes.  I think it should have links to http://readyapi.smartbear.com/about/release_notes/start.  I am used to finding release notes on download pages, so that's where I look for them.  I don't think I'm alone on this.

 

I think we've beaten this horse to death.  I think my suggestions are simple, worthwhile, and easy to implement, but if you folks disagree, I'm not going to spend any more time on the issue.

 

I also want to repeat my praise for that little educational video.  A little bit of tutorial example like this goes a long way.  Make more of  those!

 

Best Regards
