New features in this release include:

Inspect: Inspector helps users derive meaningful locators from components on any web page. The component selection option, along with a powerful wizard, allows for the choice of multiple properties. This gives users the ability to construct a meaningful locator that is unique to the highlighted Ext JS component.
External Libraries: Sencha Test 2.1 provides a way to add external files or node modules to the scenario (WebDriver only) and require them directly in the test code. This feature enables usage of custom classes within your test code. Also, node modules can be utilized to connect to databases or REST APIs to perform specific tasks.
ALM Integration: Sencha Test 2.1 will be a starting point for integration with third party defect management tools. Through our seamless integration, bugs can be validated using a built-in review screen and pushed to JIRA. The status updates on JIRA are automatically refreshed in Studio, preventing users from logging duplicate bugs.
Local Archive Server: Studio incorporates a built-in archive server that eliminates the need to run a separate server. Test runs executed in Studio can now be automatically stored in the local archive server and analyzed at a later point in time. This will allow storing selective test runs that can be analyzed during the entire software development lifecycle for potential bugs. The archive server is the entry point for logging defects into Jira. Additionally, the Local Archive Server, in combination with a WebDriver scenario, provides the benefit of performing visual screen comparison testing directly from Studio
Page Objects: Using Inspect feature grid, generate page objects for all the different pages within the applications. Create tests using page objects and store all locators and API details in a centralized location. This reduces the time spent on maintaining tests and improves quality of overall testing.
