stb-tester 0.20 has been released. The key new developments are:

  • Improvements to OCR flexibility and accuracy. We now expose the full power of the underlying tesseract OCR engine.
  • The new stb-tester core based on GStreamer 1 is now stable and we recommend that all users upgrade to 0.20.
  • The stbt batch HTML report looks better

Stb-tester has been ported to GStreamer 1, so it is incompatible with your existing “source_pipeline” (and possibly “sink_pipeline”) configuration from stb-tester 0.18. No changes are needed to your test scripts.

For more information see the 0.20 release notes.

If you’re upgrading from 0.18, see the release notes for the 0.19 beta release.
