In June, Micro Focus had released LoadRunner Professional 2020 Service Pack 2. You can check it out in my last article about SP 2 features. In the last week of September, we are getting LoadRunner Professional 2020 SP 3 update. This blog post is dedicated to see the high level overview about the new features.
As you know, only for those who has valid support contract will get the complete package i.e. VuGen, Controller, and Analysis. For those under community license (like me) will get only VuGen in the Micro Focus marketplace.
I wanted to write and create YouTube videos about LoadRunner, but I need to wait for the major release to do complete tutorials about all the components. Hopefully if someone reading this from Micro Focus team can propose the changes to the management.
