Shortly after the release of Cobra 2.0, the GNU/Linux Desktop (GUI Application) Testing Project (GNU LDTP) also released a new version of its Linux testing tool. LDTP 3.0 includes many of the new features that were included with the Windows version, including enhanced language support. Linux-specific additions include the ability to change the state of check boxes in Firefox and fixes to the program's interactions with Qt and the Python-ldtp interface.

LDTP is a testing and automation tool that uses accessibility libraries to test an application's user interface widgets. The software crawls applications according to pre-recorded test cases and examines the user interface automatically. LDTP for Linux has been tested to work with GNOME and KDE applications, Java Swing, and Mozilla's software.

LDTP 3.0 is available as .deb and RPM packages from the project's download site on the OpenSUSE servers. The application source code is licensed under the LGPLv2.1 and can be downloaded from GitHub.
