Mac users rejoice – with version 4.6.1 of SoapUI we have added support for Macs Retina display resolution. Retina is Apple’s definition of resolutions high enough that a user cannot distinguish between pixels when looking at the screen at a “normal” distance.
This means that if your Mac computer or monitor supports Retina display, SoapUI will be just as pixel-dense as the rest of the OS and other Retina-display supported software you use. As you can see in the image above the difference is actually very noticeable, creating a sharper, more crisp, GUI.
If we were to explain it in Apple-esque words we would probably write: “4.6.1 is the most beautiful release of SoapUI for the Mac ever. Your API testing experience will be 46% more beautiful and 32% more fun compared to previous versions of SoapUI. API Testing has just changed forever.”
But we won’t. In all honestly, it’s a small upgrade. However, it does have a significant impact on the look-and-feel of SoapUI on your Mac, and we hope you like it. Check it out for yourself and download 4.6.1 today using the links below.
Moving forward we will be rolling out some other improvements to the Mac-version that will make the tool’s look-and-feel even better on your Mac, and more consistent with OSX and other software written for Mac.
