Ranorex User Guide - when is an update coming?

Post by gilbar16 » Wed Mar 09, 2016 7:04 pm

The more I use the Ranorex User Guide with Ranorex 5.4.5, the more areas I see that needs to be updated.
Settings dialog is one of them where a couple of Tabs are not covered in the User Guide.

My guess would be that they are waiting on the release of Ranorex 6.0 before they update the User Guide.

It appears that 6.0 is coming soon(ish...) from the talk I have seen on the forums (I don't know anything other than that, and I probably couldn't say if I did... :D ).

I don't think there is much point in spending time updating the 5.X UG if the new version of Ranorex is so close. The tech writers are probably working on the 6.0 UG anyway.
Shortcuts usually aren't...

According to Ranorex roadmap, it seems the next major version is right behind the door (Preparing for shipment stage)...

I believe not so long ago it was in "In Progress" stage?

Just wondering which tabs you think are not covered in the user guide. IMHO all tabs are covered, but you might want to tell us which tabs need more attention by our tech writers :-)

Yes, they are already, but not everything is going to change in the user guide...
