We are using Magento TAF (test automation framework) in our deployment cycle, to test basic Magento functionality before pushing our changes to the staging and production environments. We also have written several functional tests for our own customizations.
But the TAF github repository has not been updated for 9 months and there are no tests for Magento 1.8 version. So I have a question - what is planned for the Magento TAF in the future? Will it be updated for the 1.8 version? It seems unlikely that such a huge system as Magento can be developed without automated functional tests.
Are there any official news on this?
