    🛠 Fixes

    • 👉 Use ps -lef instead of ps to list pids on Android 8.x. In new versions, ps doesn't return anything. Thanks @thinkhy!

    July 14, 2018

    3.3.1 (2018-07-14)

  • v3.3.0 Changes

    March 24, 2018

    3.3.0 (2018-03-25)

    ✨ Enhancements

    • ➕ Added a new column to the device list that displays the OpenGL ES version of each device. Note that you may have to reset the columns once if you can't see it. Thanks @koral--!
    • ➕ Added a new --no-screen-reset option to disable the default behavior of resetting rotation and returning to the home screen after a user stops using a device. Thanks @0rzech!
    • ➕ Added a new --saml-id-provider-callback-url option to the auth-saml2 unit. Thanks @0rzech!

    🛠 Fixes

    • 🛠 Fixed a setup issue with TPS650.
    • 🛠 Fixed an issue where most uploads would fail due to a breaking configuration change in a dependency.
    • ⚡️ Updated minitouch to fix multitouch issues on some devices that require the BTN_TOUCH kernel event. Lifting a contact while having and keeping one held down may have prevented any events from being processed until a new touchdown event.
  • v3.2.0 Changes

    December 06, 2017

    3.2.0 (2017-12-06)

    ✨ Enhancements

    • 👍 Android 8.1 is now supported.
    • ⚡️ The network column in the device list is now based on a value that gets updated in real time. The format of the column has changed slightly due to this change.
    • 0️⃣ The --mute-master option now accepts the values never (default), inuse (only when a device is being used), and always (mute pre-emptively during setup phase). For backwards compatibility, --mute-master with no value maps to inuse, and --no-mute-master to never.
    • The battery level and battery temperature columns are now filterable with comparison operators.
    • 🌲 Log output now includes a timestamp.

    🛠 Fixes

    • 🛠 Fixed an issue on Windows where our device binaries may have failed to install due to an Out of fallback locations error caused by a faulty mode check. Thanks @iqianxing!
  • v3.1.0 Changes

    August 30, 2017

    3.1.0 (2017-08-31)

    ✨ Enhancements

    • 👍 Android 8.0 is now supported. Please note that Android O developer previews are no longer officially supported, though they may or may not still work.
  • v3.0.1 Changes

    August 21, 2017

    3.0.1 (2017-08-21)

    🛠 Fixes

    • ⚡️ Updated adbkit to fix RangeError: Index out of range errors when parsing newer APKs that use UTF-8 encoding for their string pools.
  • v3.0.0 Changes

    August 09, 2017

    3.0.0 (2017-08-09)

    ✨ Enhancements

    • ➕ Added support for Android O Developer Preview 1 (note that any later previews are not supported yet)
    • You can now set screen JPEG quality with the SCREEN_JPEG_QUALITY environment variable at launch time. Can be useful for slow networks.
    • 📜 Switched to yargs for option parsing to make it easier to modify the CLI.
    • 💻 Almost all command line options can now be specified with environment variables.
    • Internal commands are now hidden from help output but can still be used.
    • ⚙ Running the stf binary without a command now errors and shows help output (previously there was no output whatsoever).
    • 👌 Improved help messages for various options.
    • ➕ Added an app switch key. Thanks @koral--!

    🛠 Fixes

    • 🛠 Fixed Lenovo A806 and most likely other cheap Lenovo devices as well by updating adbkit.
    • 🛠 Fixed ZUK Z1, Z2 and others by adding an alternate install location for our binaries, since /data/local/tmp is mounted as noexec on those devices. Thanks @dkw72n!
    • ⚡️ Updated adbkit-apkreader to resolve issues with certain APK files that were unparseable and therefore failed installation. We've only seen a single a single APK with this issue, but there could be more.
    • ⚡️ Updated adbkit-apkreader to resolve another unrelated parsing issue with slightly malformed manifest files.
    • ⚡️ Updated adbkit to resolve an issue where trailing spaces in an adb public key would cause an error during adb connect.
    • ⚡️ Updated adbkit to resolve issues with log parsing on Android 7.0 and later, caused by Android no longer transforming \n to \r\n.
    • ⚡️ Updated adbkit to resolve an issue with recent versions of ADB that include a null byte in, which was causing validation to fail.
    • 🛠 Fixed minitouch on Blackberry PRIV.


    • ⚡️ We now use please-update-dependencies to check for outdated dependencies when running from source. It's a super quick local check that compares package.json with installed dependencies. Should help avoid unnecessary issues caused by forgetting to run npm install after git pull.

    💥 Breaking changes

    • ⚡️ Node v6.9.x or later is now required. Earlier versions will not work. To avoid a sudden flood of issues about this change, please-update-dependencies enforces the minimum version and tells you if you need to update.
    • 🚚 The -C shortcut for the --no-cleanup option has been removed due to the switch to yargs. Please use the full --no-cleanup option instead.
    • Although likely not used by anyone, it was possible to give multiple ZeroMQ endpoints to options such as --connect-push by separating them with commas. This is still possible but now works in a different way due to the switch to yargs. Comma-separated hosts in a single value are no longer accepted. If you need to specify multiple hosts, simply use the option as many times as you like. This change is unlikely to have any impact whatsoever on most users.
    • 🚚 The --devices option of stf doctor has been removed due to unnecessary complexity.
  • v2.3.0 Changes

    November 09, 2016

    2.3.0 (2016-11-09)

    🚀 Minor release addressing the following:

    🛠 Fixes

    • 🛠 Fixed minicap on various devices running Android 4.2, incl. Qumo Quest 405, Yoga Tablet 8 etc. There may still be some that do not work, as 4.2 was customized pretty heavily by some makers. Thanks to @dkw72n for tracking down the issue and coming up with a fix! And as always, please let us know if you find any device (running any Android version) that does not work.
