Selenium 2.8 Released

Filed under: Releases — illicitonion @ 6:16 pm GMT+0000

In keeping with our (roughly) weekly releases, Selenium 2.8 was released today (and on Maven too), with a *huge* list of bug-fixes!  As well as improved stability, if you’re using the Java API, this release adds the ability to upload files to a RemoteWebDriver server (see RemoteWebDriver.setFileDetector).

Particular thanks have to go out to our two newest committers, Alexei Barancev and Ajay Kemparaj, for the copious bug-fixes they’ve contributed!

We’re already hard at work getting 2.9 ready for next week with even more more bug-fixes – watch this space!

  2. I am getting serious issues with IEDriver.dll with selenium 2.8:
    at System.Runtime.InteropServices.Marshal.ThrowExceptionForHRInternal(Int32 errorCode, IntPtr errorInfo)
    at OpenQA.Selenium.NativeLibrary..ctor(String fileName) in c:\Projects\WebDriver\trunk\dotnet\src\WebDriver\Internal\NativeLibrary.cs:line 59
    at OpenQA.Selenium.IE.InternetExplorerDriverServer..ctor() in c:\Projects\WebDriver\trunk\dotnet\src\WebDriver\IE\InternetExplorerDriverServer.cs:line 60
    at OpenQA.Selenium.IE.InternetExplorerDriver..ctor() in c:\Projects\WebDriver\trunk\dotnet\src\WebDriver\IE\InternetExplorerDriver.cs:line 75

    When will there be a new drop of this file and is there a wiki page on all of the issues?

    Big Thanks,
