SD Times news digest: Deque’s axe DevTools Pro released, Windows Terminal Preview 1.7 release, and Appery.io’s March 2021 release
Deque Systems has announced the release of its new axe DevTools Pro solutions, designed to help users directly address web accessibility issues using human and machine learning.
According to the company, users can run automated and intelligent guided tests on their websites and applications to address 76 to 84% of the accessibility issues on a web page.
“Axe DevTools Pro was built to expand the impact developers can make, without disrupting existing processes,” said Dylan Barrell, the CTO of Deque Systems. “With superior automation and guided tests, even novices can now conduct robust accessibility testing and remediation.”
Windows Terminal Preview 1.7 release
Windows Terminal Preview 1.7 includes support for JSON fragment extensions, meaning that snippets of JSON can be downloaded as extensions that can modify a user’s settings.
Users can also set a new terminal window to launch in an already existing terminal instance through a new global setting called ‘windowingBehavior.’
Windows Terminal now supports read-only panes, which prevents input into a pane.
Additional details on all of the new features in Windows Terminal Preview 1.7 are available here.

Android for Cars App Library in Jetpack
The Android for Cars App Library is now available in Jetpack as androidx.car.app 1.0.0-beta01.
Since Jetpack made the library open source, users will have more visibility into feature development and will have API consistency with other Jetpack libraries.
On September 1, 2021, the closed source Android for Cars App Library (com.google.android.libraries.car.app) will no longer be available and the Google Play Store will not accept submissions that use com.google.android.libraries.car.app, Eric Bahna, product manager at Android, wrote in a blog post.
