QualityLogic announced today that it has begun development of two suites of Application Test Suite Intermediate Files (ATS-IFs) for Microsoft Office 2016 applications running in Windows 10. Test files are being developed for Word, PowerPoint, and Publisher in Suite #1 and Excel, Visio, and Internet Explorer 12 (Spartan) in Suite #2. Both suites will begin shipping in June.

QualityLogic’s Windows 10 ATS-IF Suites let developers test any consumer (printers, RIPs, printer drivers, or software that views, edits, preflights, or converts to another file format) of each application’s format without developing their own test pages. QualityLogic’s rigorous, structured approach creates “real world” test pages that strenuously exercise the device or software.

“Printer and MFP companies and their partners have used QualityLogic ATS-IFs to test their products with popular application packages for more than 25 years,” said Steve Kang, QualityLogic senior vice president, Engineering. “We look forward to helping our customers ensure that their products are compatible with Windows 10 applications as they hit the market.”
