Selenium 2 in the news!

Posted Apr 7th, 2011

“Selenium 2.0, an upgrade to the popular open source Web application testing tool set, is anticipated for release this summer, featuring accommodations for mobile platforms and architectural improvements, its creator said on Tuesday.” “The upgrade is set to support testing of Web applications that run on Apple iPhone and Google Android devices, said Jason Huggins, who first built Selenium in 2004. Some time after the 2.0 release, Selenium builders hope to add Web application testing for Research in Motion BlackBerry and Microsoft Windows Phone 7 devices. Testing of native device applications also is on the long-term road map for Selenium. "I think it makes sense for us to expand, to be able to do native apps," said Huggins, who is attending Selenium Conference 2011 in San Francisco this week. Version 2.0 already has been in a beta test phase.” “Architectural enhancements in version 2.0 will enable Selenium to better deal with testing areas, such as accommodating password popups or security warnings. "There's a lot of under-the-hood cleaning that we've done," said Huggins, who is co-founder and CTO at Sauce Labs , which offers a cloud-based version of Selenium called Sauce On Demand.”
