New Features of Eggplant Functional v17

 Recently, we released eggPlant Functional v17, which introduces a variety of productivity features. Heavily inspired by user requests, v17 contains a little something for everybody…

TestPlant released eggPlant v16.1 this month, and I’m writing to talk to you about my favorite of the marquee features: support for Gherkin, the language of the Cucumber BDD framework. (Cue the vegetable puns!) Throughout our internal beta and in our v16.1 webinars, I’ve heard some great questions about Gherkin and our implementation of it that I’d like to share here. (I will also unabashedly share my preoccupation with Pokémon Go.)
