Hi all,

I've put a new release of StoryText out just now. The main changes are:

Many improvements to SWT/Eclipse RCP support, including support for
GEF applications.
Many improvements to wxPython support, status changed from Alpha to Beta.
Support for Python 3 and Tkinter added.
Many bugfixes.

More detail:
TextTest is a tool for automatic text-based functional testing. This
means running a batch-mode executable in lots of different ways from
the command line, and using the text output produced as a means of
controlling the behavior of that application. Alone, it is aimed
primarily at testing batch systems, scripts and legacy systems.

StoryText is a companion tool to enable text-based GUI testing. Aimed
to be used together with TextTest, it generates an ASCII art log of
the important changes in the GUI, instead of having an "assertion
mechanism" as most other tools do.

StoryText defines GUI actions in terms of a user-defined "domain
language". Tests can either be defined up-front, or using its
recorder, which unlike most recorders
understands the domain language and records tests in it, meaning it is
usable for more than demos...
