April 2021 Release

What’s New in NeoLoad 7.9?

Automatic License Leasing at Runtime

We have streamlined the runtime experience when using Neoload Web as your licence server.
With the auto-lease option activated, you won’t have to manually lease from your licence to run tests — Neoload will manage the lease/release process for you.

If you have multiple licenses, you can easily toggle the option to lease from your license manually as you do today, to remain compatible with your current workflows.
