@brendankenny brendankenny released this Jul 24, 2019

5.2.0 (2019-07-24)

Expected DevTools release in Chrome 77 (September 2019)

New Audits

  • Third-Party Usage, a new performance diagnostic that shows a breakdown of third-party resources in the page and the time/bytes needed to load them (#9067)
  • Total Blocking Time, an experimental new metric that serves as a companion to TTI to help prioritize unblocking the main thread. Since it is currently experimental, the audit is unscored and appears only in the raw LHR JSON, not in the HTML report. (#8975, #9409)

Notable changes

  • tracehouse: performance trace processing has been moved to its own directory in lib/tracehouse/ to serve as a more standalone library (9f80524, 1af2edd, 7ba6776, ddff3d6)
  • certificate security errors are no longer a fatal Lighthouse error, though the Chrome error page will still return few results in the report by default. See the docs for testing a page in this situation. (#8865)
