Release Features
  • Touch events are now available from an action
  • ProjectMaker smart function search
  • New HTTP Requests cube that supports PUT, DELETE, HEAD, OPTIONS, PATH, TRACE
  • Create actions from traffic monitor requests in one click
  • Improved ProjectMaker UI response



Enhanced Touch Events

New action: Touch event

From now on, touch events are available not only from the C# code.
Currently, there are two interaction options: Touch and LongTouch. Classic search by element, XPath, and coordinates is available. Newer versions will bring more events.





Touch events in Action Editor

Touch and LongTouch events are now available in Action Editor.



Default input mode

We added a new button so you can switch the default input mode from Mouse to Touch Events, and vice versa. You can find it in the browser window, to the right of the URL bar. If action recording is on and the input mode is Touch, cubes with touch actions will be automatically added to the project.





Smart Function Search

From now on, smart search combs through not only actions but all ProjectMaker functions! Just start typing the action name and the system will suggest the most relevant action with an already selected option. Just move it to the project by clicking Enter, double LMB clicking, or drag'n'drop.




Enhanced HTTP Request Usability

New action: HTTP requests

Previously, such requests as PUT, DELETE, HEAD, OPTIONS, PATH, and TRACE were only accessible from the C# code. Since this version, you can execute any of these HTTP requests with one action dubbed HTTP Requests.




Creating actions from traffic monitor requests

It's easier now to translate a browser project into HTTP requests.
RMB-click on a needed request in the traffic monitor window. In the context menu click Create Action from Request. You will see a cube that contains all the data of this request, including URL, Referrer, Titles, etc.




Improved Interface Response

It's imperative that this range of functions and advantages is fast-response available. This is what drove us to rework how ProjectMarker UI responds to user actions.
  • Increased project loading speed and boosted switching between window
  • Accelerated launch of DOM and various settings, table/C#/Email operations, value setting
  • Faster first-time project launches

FAQ

Yes, we are going to support ZennoPoster 5 with updates for some time.
Yes. You can install the new ZennoPoster 7 without deleting ZennoPoster 5.
No, you won't. ZennoPoster 7 is fully compatible with the older version. Therefore, all the settings, templates, schedules, etc. will be saved after you install a newer version.

However, there is one difference. ZennoPoster employs the new format .xp that replaced .xmlz. This said, you may need to add projects to ZennoPoster with another recommended extension, .zp, replacing your existing projects.

Why is the newer format better?
In our refreshed format, we tried to fix data storage errors that had been dragging on from the very first versions. Newer-format projects consume 60% less space and load by far faster than those in the previous format .xmlz. Also, the upgraded format has regard to versions of all actions. You don't have to guess if a template is compatible with the older program version.

Conversion
When you open an older template in ProjectMaker, it will be converted into a newer format. With that, the original .xmlz file will remain, with a newer one, in the .zp format, created. To enable inverted compatibility, you will be able to save a template in the older format in the Save As menu.
Yes, they will!
