Announcing Selenium 2.6.0, Firefox 6 and 7 support

Posted Sep 14th, 2011

As mentioned previously, we’ve been keeping up to date with the Selenium project and different browser releases on a regular basis.

Today, we’re happy to introduce you to Firefox 6 and Firefox 7 beta in both Sauce Scout and Sauce OnDemand for Selenium 1 and Selenium 2 users. Those versions are currently available for Windows XP (2003) and Vista (2008).

Selenium 2.6.0 is the latest version in the project. Released just yesterday, it includes tons of important bug fixes that will make your tests in the cloud even more reliable than before. Here’s the official changelog for more information.

As we’ve done in the past, we’ll soon be making 2.6.0 the default version for all of our users’ tests to run. This transition is scheduled for Monday, September 19th. In the meantime, we advise you to test in this new version using the following Desired Capabilities/JSON key-value:

"selenium-version": "2.6.0"

If you see any issues after moving your tests to this new release, we definitely want to hear about it. And remember, once we move everyone over, you’ll still be able to test with previous versions using the “selenium-version” capability outlined above, in case you notice any issues with the default version.

Happy testing!
