Get to the root cause of a test run failure by recording a video of your desktop to get a holistic view of what was happening.
Use the new Reporter.startScreenRecording and Reporter.stopScreenRecording methods to start and stop a recording during the test run and add the video to the report.
UFT Developer grid enhancements

Use the new DesktopEnvironment.release method in your test to unlock a node.

Text recognition enhancements
When using the UFT Developer OCR features, enjoy improved text recognition, mostly in the hieroglyphic languages, such as Chinese, Japanese, or Korean. This is provided by a new version of the ABBYY OCR engine. Mixed-language text is identified more accurately, as well as other text strings that were previously not recorded correctly.
However, text recognition still depends on font and image quality, as well as spacing and resolution. In some cases, existing tests may not recognize certain strings as they did before.
