Selenium 2.2 Released

Filed under: Releases — shs96c @ 9:30 am UTC

The feedback from the last release was heard loud and clear: little and often it is!

We’re proud to announce the release of Selenium 2.2. What’s new this time? For many users, this is simply a bug fix release as there are no new major features. One thing you might appreciate is better exceptions being thrown when xpath searches return something other than a web element when using the WebDriver APIs, and we’re continuing to tweak the emulation of user events.

If you’re a .Net user, there is now an official NuGet package, and if you’re a maven user then rest assured the release is heading to the central repo as quickly as we can manage.

  1. When do selenium 2.2 support perl language ???????

    • There’s a separate project to bring perl support to webdriver here: https://github.com/aivaturi/Selenium-Remote-Driver

      The major problem we’ve had is that the perl community seem interested in using webdriver, but not in writing or maintaining the necessary perl bindings.

    • It’s coming, but for basic testing, you can use the normal “click” and “sendKeys” methods.

  5. THANK YOU!

    This fixed the Firefox 5 issue I was having in Bromine. Bromine would no longer launch Firefox when FF5 came out.

    We appreciate you hard work

  6. this version seems to be very slower than the 2.0b3 …
    my test takes now 21s vs 9 seconds with the older version (Firefox driver + Firefox 4.0+ web gwt app)
    All click commands spend more time . When I come back to the older version it’s faster again.
    any idea ? thank’s

  7. Hi, we came across an issue when using Seleninum 2.1, we then upgraded to Selenium 2.2 and found a similar issue using Firefox 5. In Selenium 2.2, the executeScript method of the JavascriptExecutor interface is not throwing any expection log when a null value is passed to the executeScript method. This issue was observed when the WebDriver was trying to invoke the executeScript method on a object which had null value. After calling this method, the control is never returned nor an exception was generated. Kindly help. Thanks in advance
