We are pleased to announce the release of Appium 1.5.3 through npm and on Sauce Labs! Appium 1.5.3 is primarily a bug-fix release. However, it also adds functionality to support for iOS WKWebViews and for automating the iOS Calendar app, as well as adding a capability to use abd for screenshots in Android web/hybrid sessions, and providing a list of Android activities to wait for on session startup. General

  • Add support for automating the built-in Calandar app.

  • Fix handling of Safari in "new window" state.

  • Allow appWaitActivity to be a list of activities.
  • Fix setting wifi and data state.
  • Implement initAutoWebView capability.
  • Report appPackage, appActivity, and deviceUDID when requesting session details, so tests have more information about running state.
