* Node skips configurations that does not match current platform, no more IE
slots on Linux-based nodes.
* Introduced unique ids for node slot configurations. Hub injects UID of the
matched configuration to the new request payload. Node mutates capabilities
with matching config UUID only. This allows to have multiple configurations
for the same browser in node config file.
* Implemented matching of some browser-specific capabilities on Grid hub,
namely "marionette" for Firefox (default is true) and "technologyPreview"
for Safari (default is false).
* "technologyPreview" capability is now honored again by SafariDriver.
* Added initial support for managing Grid Hubs and Nodes via JMX
* Removed `Alert.authenticate` and supporting classes
* Better handling of configuring SafariDriver via capabilities.
* Including httpcore in the packaged libs.
* Sending geckodriver logs to stderr by default. The default log level
is low enough that the log does not look polluted. Geckodriver does
not allow to separate its own log from the browser logs, so messages
from the browser log can appear in the log even on the lowest level.
* Avoid sending the shutdown command to driver services that don't
support it.
* Add support for customizing the Grid Registry.
* Firefox and Chrome binary paths specified in Grid Node configs are
now honoured.

* SafariDriver and legacy FirefoxDriver can now be configured when
using the remote server through Capabilities. Notably, this allows
the Safari Technology Preview to be used if it's installed.
* Implemented the ability to configure the firefox log target using
the driver service builder or a system property. Logs are sent to
the null output stream by default. Fixes #4136
* Simulate some w3c Actions commands using the old APIs. This allows a
local end that only speaks the JSON Wire Protocol to use
"Actions.moveTo" when communicating with a W3C compliant remote
end. Apparently, people need this.
* More fluent APIs in `*Options` classes.
* Moving some safari config options from `SafariOptions` to the
* In Grid and Remote, force the use of the legacy Firefox driver when
marionette flag is set.
* The protocol handshake now uses a `CapabilityTransform` to convert
an JSON Wire Protocol capability to one or more w3c
capabilities. These are located using the standard Java
ServiceLoader framework.
* The protocol handshake also uses a `CapabilitiesFilter` that
extracts keys and values specific to a browser from a JSON Wire
Protocol capabilities map. Again, these are loaded using the
`ServiceLoader` framework.
* `requiredCapabilities` are now no longer sent across the wire.
* Fixed handling of unrecognized platform names returned by remote
end. #4781
* Better error messages from the htmlrunner.
* Migrated from using `DesiredCapabilities` to either
`MutableCapabilities` or (preferably) `ImmutableCapabilities`.
* Move building of locators to How enum

* Added `Interactive` interface to EventFiringWebDriver. Fixes #4589
* Add options to start Firefox and Chrome in headless modes.
Important note:
* The new standalone server and Grid Node feature a "pass through"
mode. If you see changes to the Selenium WebDriver "logging" APIs or
automatic capture of screenshots on error (or if you want the old
behaviour back) you can do so by executing:
`java -jar selenium-server-standalone-3.5.3.jar -enablePassThrough false`
* Allow user-provided DriverProviders to override default providers in
passthrough mode.
* Fixes issue with W3C Actions not being properly filled when multiple
input sources are used.
* Platform that represent platform families ("WINDOWS", "UNIX", "MAC",
and "IOS") return `null` from `Platform.getFamily`.

* Synchronized "platform" and "platformName" capability values. Fixes #4565
* Add iOS `Platform`.
* Fix wrapping of maps with null values. Fixes #3380
* Grid: Add new w3c compatible `status` endpoints for Hub and nodes.
* Grid: Properly parse responses from upstream nodes that are not
200. Fixes issue where `NoSuchElementException` was mistaken for a
* Grid: Handle re-encoding issue when transferring text from the
endpoint node to the local end.
Important note:
* The new standalone server and Grid Node feature a "pass through"
mode. If you see changes to the Selenium WebDriver "logging" APIs or
automatic capture of screenshots on error (or if you want the old
behaviour back) you can do so by executing:
`java -jar selenium-server-standalone-3.5.2.jar -enablePassThrough false`
* Avoid encoding numbers as floats rather then longs in JSON payloads.
* New "pass through" mode supports file uploads again.
* Added support for querying running sessions via the
"/wd/hub/sessions" endpoint
* Fix a NullPointerException when deserializing exceptions from a
remote webdriver.
* Handle the `macOS` as a valid platform name, as this is used by
Important note:
* The new standalone server and Grid Node feature a "pass through"
mode. If you see changes to the Selenium WebDriver "logging" APIs or
automatic capture of screenshots on error (or if you want the old
behaviour back) you can do so by executing:
`java -jar selenium-server-standalone-3.5.1.jar -enablePassThrough false`
* Bump guava to version 23. This is work around an issue where maven
will select guava's android variant if using a ranged selector.
Note: Never pushed to maven due to problems resolving guava version.
Important note:
* The new standalone server and Grid Node feature a "pass through"
mode. If you see changes to the Selenium WebDriver "logging" APIs or
automatic capture of screenshots on error (or if you want the old
behaviour back) you can do so by executing:
`java -jar selenium-server-standalone-3.5.0.jar -enablePassThrough false`
* Bump guava to version 22.
* Add support for a new "pass through" mode. This allows a connection
from your test's RemoteWebDriver, through the Grid Hub, to a Grid
Node, and down to a DriverService and thence the browser to use the
same WebDriver protocol (the Json Wire Protocol or the W3C one) end
to end without translation. This mode can be disabled by starting
the standalone server or Grid node with `-enablePassThrough false`
* Pin Guava to version 21+. This fixes problems with lambdas being
used as ExpectedConditions.
* Start making *Option classes instances of Capabilities. This allows
the user to do:
`WebDriver driver = new RemoteWebDriver(new InternetExplorerOptions());`
* Better handling of `getText` when confronted with a Shadow DOM
* Better logging when using an Augmenter fails.
* Make it easier to add new @FindBy annotations.
* Attempt to kill processes before draining input, error, and output
streams. This should reduce apparent hanging when closing Firefox in

Protocol ones.
* Fixing boolean command line arguments (#3877)
* Geckodriver 0.16 is strongly recommended
* LiFT package is now available as a separate maven dependency.
* Deprecated numerous constructors on RemoteWebDriver that are no

from the remote end are now unwrapped properly.
* Fix a bug with the status page of the standalone server.
* Deprecated `Capabilities.isJavascriptEnabled`
* Support for geckodriver v0.15.0.
* Deprecated seldom used FirefoxDriver constructors.
* Added javadocs to show best way to create a new FirefoxDriver:
DesiredCapabilities caps = new FirefoxOptions()
// For example purposes only
.setProfile(new FirefoxProfile())
WebDriver driver = new FirefoxDriver(caps);
* Stream New Session capabilities to disk before use to avoid eating
every byte of available memory.
* Beginnings of local-end implementation of the w3c New Session

* Grid new session requests pass original request through to the node
without any modifications.
* Fix NPE in htmlrunner when port is not specified.
* FirefoxDriver (legacy) fix to cleanup temp filesystem on quit (#2914 #2908).
* Firefox is only fully supported at version 47.0.1 or earlier. Support
for later versions of firefox is provided by geckodriver, which is
based on the evolving W3C WebDriver spec, and uses the wire protocol
in that spec, which is liable to change without notice.
* You may wish to choose an ESR release such as 45.4.0esr or earlier.
* Firefox 47.0.0 is not supported at all.
Other major changes:
* Stability fixes in Grid.
* All Grid nodes can now offer help.

* Firefox profile is passed to both the legacy FirefoxDriver and
* Firefox is only fully supported at version 47.0.1 or earlier. Support
for later versions of firefox is provided by geckodriver, which is
based on the evolving W3C WebDriver spec, and uses the wire protocol
in that spec, which is liable to change without notice.
* You may wish to choose an ESR release such as 45.4.0esr or earlier.
* Firefox 47.0.0 is not supported at all.

* Added a "protocol handshake" on starting a remote webdriver. We now
log the wire dialect spoken (original as "OSS" and the version
tracking the W3C spec as "W3C"). This may result in multiple calls

(immediately previous ESR), 38 (immediately previous release and current
ESR), and 39 (current release).
* Beta Alert.AuthenticateUsing api implementation added, beta testing with IE.
* Added TakesScreenshot to WebElement.
* (provided by Microsoft) Added language bindings for Microsoft Edge browser
* Make it possible for users to override how the Lock is obtained with Firefox.
* (provided by Ahmed Ashour) Added implementation of Alert for HtmlUnit driver.
* (provided by Ahmed Ashour) Fixed findElementByXPath for HtmlUnit driver to
work for XML pages.
* (provided by Ahmed Ashour) Fixed HtmlUnit driver to allow for manipulating
elements in SVG documents.
* (provided by Ahmed Ashour) Fixed HtmlUnit driver so that deleteAllCookies
deletes cookies only for the current domain, matching other implementations.
* (provided by Tamás Buka) Created an overload to
ExpectedConditions.frameToBeAvailableAndSwitchToIt support to index and
WebElement so that WebDriverWait can use this mode to switch frames.
* (provided by Joshua Bruning) Allow access to local profiler logs. An
exception may be thrown if the WebDriver server does not recognize profiler
logs. In this case, the user should be able to see the local profiler logs.
* (provided by Sergey Tikhomirov) Changed visibility of isDecoratableList
method of DefaultFieldDecorator to protected for use with custom PageFactory
* Froze javascript.enabled property in Firefox profiles
* FIXED #426: (provided by Anand Jayaram) Default the hub port to 4444, if no
port was provided.
* FIXED #638: Disabled HTTP Public Key Pinning (HPKP) when the
webdriver_accept_untrusted_certs capability is set. As of Firefox 39, Firefox
ignores certificate overrides if the domain's certificate is pinned.
* FIXED #644: (provided by Brett Randall) Modified ErrorHandler to tolerate
non-Number lineNumber, and also attempts to safely parse a non-Number Object
if it receives a non-Number. If absent or non-numeric it now continues to
build the StackTraceElement (instead of aborting that frame) and uses the
conventional -1 for lineNumber.
* FIXED #658: Disable reading list info panel in Firefox.
* Added a guard that prevents starting "IE instead of Opera" (or some other
unwanted browser that obviously does not match the desired capabilities).
Previously if a new session request is forwarded to a node it results in a
driver instance creation in any case. For example, let's suppose a user
starts a node with -browser browserName=opera option, and there is no
operadriver in the classpath. Then the user requests a new remote driver with
browserName=opera. The hub forwards the request to the node, and the node
attempts to find the "best matching" driver provider. As far as opera is not
available, it can start any other browser. Because "best matching" does not
imply matching. The new guard prevents this unwanted behavior.
* Added support to grid for Microsoft Edge driver
* (provided by Dima Kovalenko) Sort Grid Proxies in order of least busy to
busiest. This should prevent situation where one node is running multiple
sessions while several nodes are completely idle.
* Removed start of Firefox with -silent option to prevent crash in Firefox.
* FIXED #570: Add ability to record elements that do not have href attributes.
Important changes in this release:
* Supports native events for Firefox version 31 (immediately previous
ESR). Native event support has been discontinued for versions of
Firefox later than 33. Synthetic events tested on Firefox versions 31
(immediately previous ESR), 37 (immediately previous release), and 38
(current release and current ESR).
* Remove all support from both webdriver and RC for Presto-based
Opera. Blink-based Opera is still supported!
* Added beta Marionette driver (for Firefox OS and recent desktop
* Fixing critical selenium server error caused by a user registering a
driver class compiled with a higher Java version than the server is
running (eg: server runs with Java 7, but the driver is comopiled to
target Java 8)
* FirefoxDriver: now supported on OpenBSD (added by
* HtmlUnitDriver: Updated to HtmlUnit 2.17. Requires Java 7 or above to work.
Other notable changes:

preset preference values
* PageFactory: Changed default value of how part of @FindBy annotation
from ID to UNSET, but treat them equivalent to ensure backward
* PageFactory: Provide ability to use custom annotations. (Provided
by Artem Koshelev)
* Use DaemonExecutor from commons-exec instead of DefaultExecutor.
Fixes Google Code issue 4734. (Provided by Richard Atkins)
* FirefoxDriver and Java language bindings now handle both legacy and
W3C specification dialects of element reference serialization in the
JSON wire protocol.
* FirefoxDriver: Don't force garbage collection in httpd.js for
Firefox when connections are closed
Important changes in this release:
* Native events in Firefox relied on an API that Mozilla no longer
provides. As such, fall back to synthesized events on recent Firefox
Other changes:
* When Selenium is unable to interact with an element, such as the
case when an element is missing or disabled, this change will output
exactly how Selenium is attempting to locate the element, such as
the XPath or id of the element. This greatly speeds up
troubleshooting issues, as the exception message clearly states what
element is broken/missing for common problems like an
* improve ByCssSelector#toString
* Remove automatic installation of the SafariDriver in Java.
* Complete Selenium Java Server support for Blink based Opera
* Upgrading PhantomJS driver
* Pull HttpClient implementation details out of HttpCommandExecutor.
* Fix issue 8254: Extensions were incorrectly transferred between
Windows client and Linux grid node, because ZipEntry had incorrect
name with '\' as separators.
* Adding capabilities and browser type for Opera Blink, and
configuring tests to run in Opera Blink
* Adding support for Blink-based Opera to Java binding
* Adding Yosemite platform
* Allowing to set an arbitrary platform capability even if it can't be
converted to Platform enum. Non-standard platform values can cause
matching issues on Grid, but they can be usable for third-party Grid
* Taking XML namespaces into account when searching by XPath. Checked
to work in Firefox. Chrome supports namespaces out of the box. Need
to update IE and Safari drivers to use the updated atom and test
them carefully.
* Updating Native events to support Firefox 24, 31, 32 and 33
* Update calls to deprecated guava methods.
* Remove the deprecated DatabaseStorage interface. And callers. Note that the browser implementations may still have an implementation of these interfaces, but nothing in the main project implements it so we should be okay.
* Bump the version of guava to 18
* Bringing MarionetteConnection in line with the current marionette state (FF33)

* Using asMap as well as toMap to convert an object to Json
* Using JsonNull.INSTANCE instead of null
* Removing deprecated classes
* Log stacktrace. Adds more info on catch to be put into the log instead of just console. This will help debug issues when one has access to grid hub log but no access to console.
* Remove unused static import of Ignore.Driver.HTMLUNIT.
* Remove obsolete ChromeOptions code.
* trim() HTTP response content because some drivers send back a response containing trailing null bytes, which the GSON parser does not like.
* If JsonParser.parse() fails to parse a string obtained from a reflective call to a toJson() method, assume it is a primitive string.
This is the case for, e.g., FirefoxProfile.toJson(), which returns a base64-encoded zip file. That string likely contains at least one '/', which the Gson parser rejects.
* Fixing SessionId from json converter to better handle the case of null sessionId
* Fix the Eclipse config. The new gson dependency wasn't added. Now is :) Also switched a call in HtmlUnitWebElement to use guava rather than commons-lang since that's already included in the build configs for both Buck and CrazyFun.
* Get the Buck build working again.
* HtmlUnit: add text to the end of input fields. This makes the htmlunit driver work as the other drivers do.
* HtmlUnit: Fix getAttribute for dynamic properties.
* Enable Html5CapabilitiesTest for HtmlUnit
* Fix classpath for running tests in eclipse This allows the htmlunitdriver tests to run in Eclipse.

* IEDriver crashes in WaitUntilElementFocused() because of null pointer. Fixes issue #7577
* Deprecate the original RC interface in Selenium.
As part of Selenium 3.0, we shall be moving the original RC interface to a
legacy JAR that will be available as a separate download. As the first step
in this process, the original "Selenium" interface is being marked as
* Run FirefoxDriver tests with Buck.
* Bump timeout for tests since a suite is also a test.
* Run htmlunit-driver tests with Buck.
* Run the ignored tests printer with Buck.
* Get org.openqa.selenium.SmallTests building with Buck.
* Working around limitations in subpixel precision event handling.
The bug/limitation where browser supports subpixel precision for elements but not for dispatched events was found in both modern Chrome ( and Firefox (?) browsers.
(IE doesn't seem to be affected: before and including IE9 - no subpixel for elements and events; from ie10 - subpixel is supported for both elements and events).
This test was lucky so far (mostly?) and didn't hit this issue, until Chrome 37 that enabled subpixel text scaling by default.
This change makes *sure* elements have subpixel coordinates (if only browser supports'em) and then it makes sure this test doesn't fail because of that (while still testing selenium atoms).
While there, I moved asserts from event handlers into the normal test flow so jsunit can properly attribute assertion failures to specific test methods.

* Modified IE driver server to more closely follow W3C spec
This commit includes a number of changes designed to bring the IE driver
into closer alignment with the W3C WebDriver specification. It provides
no functional changes to the driver, nor does it change any external-
facing API. The changes are:
* Changed webdriver::Server to examine the response from the newSession
command for the session ID rather than a two-stage process. The
webdriver::Server::DispatchCommand method now calls the
InitializeSession method directly when processing the newSession
* Removed the now-obsolete webdriver::Server::CreateSession method.
* Added a Serialize/Deserialize method pair on the webdriver::Command
class (renaming the Populate method to Deserialize).
* Revamped the serialization of webdriver::Command to use 'name' instead
of 'command' for the command name.
* Added a session ID member to the webdriver::Command object.
* Modified the webdriver::Command object to no longer draw distinction
between parameters passed in as part of the URL substitution and those
passed in as part of the JSON payload in the body.
* Modified webdriver::CommandHandler::ExecuteInternal (and all subclass

* When Firefox is configured to accept all SSL certs (which is the default behavior), we need to set a time offset to prevent Firefox from using HSTS (HTTP Strict Transport Security). If we don't do this, Firefox will pre-fetch the certs for sites that should always be accessed over HTTPS and allows Firefox to catch man-in-the-middle attacks. While this is A Good Thing for users, it prevents WebDriver from accepting self-signed certs for these domains (e.g. when they are accessed through a HTTPS proxy).

* Update to support native events for Firefox 28 (removed native event
support for Firefox 26). Native events are now supported for the
following Firefox versions:
17 (immediately previous ESR release)
24 (current ESR release)
27 (immediately previous release
28 (current release)
* Fixed capabilities to be sent properly encoded. For instance,
capabilities for mobile have copyright signs.
* Renamed some commands in the Firefox driver to prepare for Selenium
3. This essentially means that we're mirroring the names of the
commands in the function names within the driver. Also implemented
handling a Selenium 3 style "sessionId" in a Command received by a
Selenium 2 server.
* Implemented support for switching context as described here:
This feature will be used by mobile WebDriver users to switch
between different contexts like the native or the webview UI element
tree. The feature is end to end tested with latest Selendroid
snapshot version (6a126ab). In the langauge bindings, this is
implemented as a role-based interface. Subclasses of RemoteWEbDriver
that need this should extend TargetLocator and use covariant return
types to keep everything happy and sweet.
* Removed InternetExplorerDriver constructor that accepts
WindowsProxyManager as a parameter. Proxy management moved to
IEDriverServer and WindowsProxyManager is used for RC only now.
* Removed use of VK_ENTER since its been removed from Firefox. PUA
code uses VK_RETURN now like Mozilla Tools.
* Added switch to parent frame command to the wire protocol and API.
* Added httpOnly flag to Cookie JSON object.
* (on behalf of Tobias Lidskog): Added property for silencing
chromedriver. The Java property "" is
now used to set the default value for silent mode in chromedriver
using the ChromeDriverService class. This is analogous to the
existing system property for controlling verbose mode.
* (on behalf of Yi Zeng): Updated download link to
* Reduced the visibility of a deprecated class in the htmlunit driver.
* Removed deprecated FirefoxProfile.setProxyPreferences method.
* Removed deprecated ChromeOptions.setExperimentalOptions
* FIXED: 4843: (on behalf of Jonatan Kronqvist): Regard all modifier
keys in SingleKeyAction. An earlier commit added META, but COMMAND
and LEFT_* were left out as they were misinterpreted as aliases,
which they aren't (they onlyuse the enum definition to get the same
character code of the keys).
* FIXED: 5331: Added javadoc to JavascriptExecutor executeAsyncScript
about the default timeout. Also added some extra information on
troubleshooting common issues.
* FIXED: 7014: Fixed parameters parsing.
* FIXED: 7033: Fixed javadoc.
* FIXED: 7105: Properly bind "this" for beforeEach/it/afterEach in
mocha integration.
* Modified to ignore exceptions during the clean-up process if failing
to start a RemoteWebDriver instance.
* FIXED: 6770: Setting a timeout when Jetty has low resources to
prevent hub from hanging.
* FIXED: 6771: If a session times out and the browser was never
started, it should still be cleaned up on the hub side.
BeforeRelease should then be a no-op and not throw.
* FIXED: 6772: Added a configuration parameter to set the number of
threads Jetty uses. Default is -1, which implements the current
behavior (255 threads from Jetty's default settings)
* FIXED 6773: Consuming the request in all cases to properly release
* FIXED: 6811: Clean up immediately if starting a driver or session
errors in RemoteWebDriver.
* FIXED: 6878: Actually pass the response body to CommandListener
implementations, per the interface contract.
* FIXED: 7047: Updated a grid timeout property that seems to have been
overlooked in a previous cleanup.
* Added lost quotes in JSON format (RC).
* Removed old version of Selenium RC emulation and leaving the new one
in place.
* Update to support native events for Firefox 27 (removed native event
support for Firefox 25).
* Removed the iPhone driver. Also leaving the atoms available, so that
appium and iosdriver can use them.
* Deleted the client side of the AndroidDriver. Note that the atoms
are still left in place so that Selendroid can still be compiled.
* Make the RemoteWebDriver implement TakesScreenshot. There's only one
driver that doesn't implement the interface (the HtmUnitDriver) and
this is the most common cause for using the Augmenter, which isn't
very discoverable.
* Imported PhantomJSDriver 1.1.0, removing 1.0.4 (previous version).
* Implemented augmentation of previously augmented instances
* Fixed JdkAugmenter's inability to add interfaces that are already implemented
* Removed, an unnecessary abstraction
* (on behalf of Tobias Lidskog) Add ability to send --silent flag to
when building an inverted predicate.
* Implemented part of advanced user interactions using injected atoms
* Fixed HtmlUnitDriver to handle timeout exception on refresh.
* Implemented page load timeouts in Firefox without stopping page
* Implemented pageLoadingStrategy capability in Firefox.
* Migrated the WebDriverBackedSelenium to
com.thoughtworks.selenium.webdriven. This also leaves behind a
deprecated implementation of each of the key interfaces to ease
migration for users.
* Implemented proper error code for the case of invalid css selector
empty class name, and compound class name in atoms.
* Implemented alert and confirmation handling in WDBS (Java)
* Throw a more descriptive error when typing in certain types of input
elements in Chrome. Starting with Chrome 33, certain types of input
elements do not support the selection API (in fact, they throw when
you try to access the property). This prevents us from fully
simulating typing in the atoms.
* FIXED: 2397: (on behalf of TommyBeadle) Fixed exception handling
* FIXED: 3991: Add Keys.chord(Iterable<CharSequence>) as a utility
* FIXED: 4606: Stop web page loading after timeout.
* FIXED: 4843: (on behalf of Jonatan Kronqvist) Keys.META is now
regarded as modifier key in SingleKeyAction. Keys.META, Keys.COMMAND,
Keys.LEFT_ALT, Keys.LEFT_CONTROL and Keys.LEFT_SHIFT are now also
regarded as modifier keys in SingleKeyAction (because of their
* FIXED: 5397: Disabled validation of cookies loaded from the browser.
If the browser could parse the cookie we are to be able to provide
this information to the user even if the cookie is inalid.
* FIXED: 5859: Implemented keyDownNative, keyUpNative and
keyPressNative in WDBS. These commands are implemented via Actions.
* FIXED: 6512: When the host is unknown, make the HtmlUnitDriver
return an error page.
* FIXED: 6657: Make the LoggingPreferences implement Serializable.
* FIXED: 6681: Preventing augmentation of subclasses of RemoteWebDriver. Fixes
* FIXED: 6830: (on behalf of GeorgeKlinich) Urlencoding result
returned by server implementation of WebDriverBackedSelenium.
* FIXED: 6834: Creating sesion cookie if expiry is not set. Fixes issue 6834
* FIXED: 6947: Script timeout should get reset even when async
callback is called synchronously.
* For consistency with Closure's new promise API, use thenCatch()
and thenFinally() instead of addCallback(), addErrback(), et al.
* ResultType.EXCEPTION and ResultType.ERROR are handled the exact same way,
so remove one of them and simplify some code.
* Treat promise.fulfill/reject as no-ops instead of throwing if the
promise has already been resolved.
* Added some utility functions to simplify working with arrays of
* FIXED: 6826: Add support for custom locators in webdriverjs.
* FIXED: 4589: Restrict the host where grid hub is listening if -host
option is specified.
* FIXED: 6445: Shorten string representation of capabilities in the
hub log and grid console.
* Deprecated browser launchers for dead versions of firefox.
* Update to support native events for Firefox 26.
* Removed server side of iPhone driver.
* Removed server-side of AndroidDriver and deprecating client side.
* FIXED: 6686: Changed Deferred#cancel() to silently no-op if the
deferred has already been resolved.
* Update to support native events for Firefox 25.
* Updated httpclient and httpcore maven dependencies
* When moving the mouse relative to an element hidden in a parent's
overflow region, that element must first be scrolled into view
before the mouse move can be completed.
* Removed WindowsProxyManager from InternetExplorerDriver, proxy
management is implemented in IEDriverServer now.
* The logging level for the FirefoxDriver's native components can now
be set from the command line with the SELENIUM_LOG_LEVEL
environment variable. Valid values are ERROR, WARN, INFO, DEBUG,
and TRACE. If the value is not set, or an unrecognized value is
specified, the log level will be set to FATAL (which was the
previous behavior).
* Implemented ability to return Date object from executeScript
(Firefox only).
* Fixed Firefox returning the actual state of nativeEvents.
* Made it possible to switch the webdriver.xpi from the command line
using a system property.
* Removed hardcoded chromedriver version
* SafariDriver WebElement#getTagName() should return a lowercase
* If ChromeDriver fails to start, suppress any exceptions from the
subsequent "clean-up" quit() so the error from start is not lost.
* Added an alternate, and Android-friendly, implementation of the
Augmenter that uses JDK interface proxies instead of cglib. This
new implementation is available as org.openqa.remote.JdkAugmenter;
the default Augmenter implementation still relies on cglib.
* Prevented an infinite loop when computing overflow state when the
documentElement has fixed position.
* Improveed logging for UnixProcess#destroy().
* If an error is thrown while typing a key sequence, return that
error to the client. Prior to this change, the driver would
effectively hang.
* Do not attempt to generate a key event if the target element is no
longer attached to the DOM. nsIPressShell (which is used to
dispatch events) will throw a generic NS_UNEXPECTED_ERROR if we
fail to make this check.
* FIXED: 3107: (On behalf of Ross Patterson) Preventing possible NPE.
* FIXED: 4501: (On behalf of Robert Ambrus) Introduced a system
property org.openqa.jetty.SocketListener.bufferSize that allows to
set the size of the buffer Jetty uses for network communications.
* FIXED: 4698: Added missing expected conditions.
* FIXED: 5295: User defined element properties should be retrievable
with getAttribute.
* FIXED: 5900: Revamped the SafariDriver's internal networking.

in WDBS.
* FIXED: 6358: Disabled Content Security Policy in Firefox.
* FIXED: 6414: Fixed the way EventFiringWebDriver unwraps the
underlying driver.
* FIXED: 6431: Catch an exception thrown if the chrome executable is
not found and stop chromedriver before propagating it.
* FIXED: 6445: Shortened Firefox profile textual representation in
* FIXED: 6473: Implemented ability to pass --verbose option to
WebDriver JS:
* Always annotate errors for rejected promises
* FIXED: 6284: Omit x/y offsets from the mouseMove command instead of
defaulting to (0,0).
* FIXED: 6471: Correctly document the contract on
* FIXED: 6612: On Unix, use the default IANA ephemeral port range if
unable to retrieve the current system's range.
* FIXED: 6617: Checking for Error.captureStackTrace is sufficient to
determine if an environment supports stack traces. This avoids
unnecessarily triggering debuggers configured to halt when an error
is thrown.
* FIXED: 6627: Safely rebuild chrome.Options from a partial JSON spec.
* FIXED: 6357: Added PhantomJS icon to the grid console.
* FIXED: 6392: Removed misleading log messages.
* FIXED: 1666: Fixed typo in RegExp.test function name.

* FIXED: 2845: Moved storedVars from test case level to test suite
* FIXED: 3185: Fixed JSON converter (RC).
* FIXED: 3270: Fixed switch to window by var= locator (RC).
* FIXED: 5103: Fixed screenshooter in Firefox and Selenium RC,
limiting the size of the screenshot to pevent failures.
* FIXED: 6496: Enabled .htm and .xhtml extensions for test suites.
* Fix Firefox native event support on Linux for 23 & 24.
* Updated Firefox native event components to support Firefox 24.
* Updated HtmlUnit to 2.13.
* Updated HttpClient to 4.3.
* Updated version of Guava to 15.
* Updated version of wgxpath.
* Return an empty string instead of "null" when the browserName and
version capabilities are not set.
* Stop propagation of the webdriver-evaluate custom event when
executing user supplied JavaScript. Without this change, the event
handler will trigger twice for async scripts, causing the driver to
attempt to evaluate the user script twice, leading to unpredictable
* Added a new pause action to the interactions API.
* Improved support for using the HTML5 APIs through the remote
server by augmenting the session driver before attempting to
access HTML5 capabilities. If the driver does not support the
requested feature, throw an UnsupportedCommandException instead of
a ClassCastException.
* Implemented elementScrollBehavior capability in FirefoxDriver.
* Fixed getLocation to work on scrolled pages.
* Fixed autoscrolling for elements located in frames.
* Fixed drag-n-drop for elements in frames in Firefox with native
* Implemented SOCKS proxy support for FirefoxDriver
* Fixed support for SVG documents in the atoms.
* Fixed computing an element's container dimensions to account for
the scrollbar size when scrolling
* FIXED: 2670: Made subclasses of By serializable.
* FIXED: 6200: Pass command line arguments to the Selenium server
instead of to the JVM.
* FIXED: 6293: Added more informative error message.
* FIXED: 6346: Allow args to passed to the JVM using the jvmArgs
* Added ability to fetch slotCounts from /grid/api/hub. The resource
looks like this:
{ "slotCounts": { "total": 20, "free": 8 } }
* Added ability to fetch newSessionRequestCount from the
/grid/api/hub resource.
* Updated Firefox native event components to support Firefox 23.
* Removing deprecated interactions interfaces (Keyboard, Mouse,
* Updated operadriver to 1.4.
* Introduced ie.setProxyByServer capability to select how IE browser
proxy will be set up, either by old Java code using Windows
registry or inside IEDriverServer using WinINet methods. This
capability is marked as deprecated and will be removed in future
versions. In the future, IE proxy settings will be set up only by
IEDriverServer. Current default value of ie.setProxyByServer is
false so Windows registry will be used for IE proxy setup.
* Guarded around IE returning an empty object for the active element.
* FIXED: 6055: Fixing "invalid xpath" issue, actually invalid NS
WebDriver JS:
* FIXED: 6079: The parent process should not wait for spawned driver
service processes (chromedriver, phantomjs, etc.)
* Updated Firefox native event components to support Firefox 22.
* Update synthesized mouse implementation. Mouse moves are
implemented using nsIDOMWindowUtils.
* Finding in a slightly more intelligent way: Check that
dlopen actually succeeds, if not found in one of the fixed paths,
look in the LD_LIBRARY_PATH.
* Added ExpectedConditions to check for the visibility of all
WebElements in a List
* Updated the wgxpath library.
* Updated our copy of the Closure compiler and library to the most
recent versions.
* Updated the atoms library, including support for MS pointer events
and refinements to element visibility tests.
* Close all open connections when stopping the SafariDriver server.
* Fall back to a loopback address if the current machine does not
have an external IP address (as will be the case when there is no
internet connection).
* Remove sizzle dependency from the firefox driver. We only needed
this for versions of firefox prior to 3.5, which we no longer
* Fixed Select.escapeQuotes method.
* Added SafariOptions and support for custom Safari extensions.
* Moved Mouse, Keyboard and TouchScreen to the interactions package
where they belong. This has the benefit of also making our build
files simpler once we delete the original versions which have been
* Deprecated the HasTouchScreen interface.
* Fixed condition in Select.select_by_index method to fix case when
selection is performed by index on a multiple select element.
* Implemented an alpha version of a Marionette (WebDriver implemented
natively in Firefox) driver.
* Deprecated IPhoneDriver.
* Added support for the HTML5 "hidden" attribute. If an element, or
ancestor, has hidden attribute make, it is not shown.
* FIXED: 2285: Allow setting default logLevel for standalone-server.

* Update grid for change in behavior of WebDriver's new session
* Fixed handling of JSON conversion errors at node.
* FIXED: 5942: Fix hang of hub when node machine is not available.
* Fixed RC tests failing in Firefox beta builds. This has been fixed
in two ways:
* Rely on the automation atoms where possible.
* Obtain the document and window from the element the event is
firing from.
In the course of fixing this, all but one usage of "triggerEvent"
was replaced. Because of this, the method has been inlined to the last
call site.
* FIXED: 1646: UTF-8 encoded user-extensions.js support.
* getText() ignores elements in the <head>
* Bundled OperaDriver version bumped to 1.3.

* FIXED: 5632: It's now possible to create a new session with
WebDriverJs when running in a browser.
* Add a WebDriverJs client to the SafariDriver's logging window so
it's possible to use WebDriver from the devtools REPL on that
* Making "beta" console the default one, it's time to get out of
beta status
* Old console is now available at /grid/old/console/
* Addressed memory leaks caused by per-session logging.
* FIXED: 3001: Making Selenium the default protocol if a node was
started with "-role rc" option.
* FIXED: 3636: selenium.fireEvent works with the webdriver-backed
selenium and IE.
This release supports Firefox verions: 10esr, 17esr, 19, 20
* Let WindowsUtils.killPID() kill the whole process tree
* Implementing support for implicit "submit" button type in
* bug fix for python hang with 302 response

to element and allows JavaScript execution
* Fixing case of "no active element" for HtmlUnitDriver
* WindowsUtils.kill() fix on Windows 8
* Updating HtmlUnit to 2.12 (and cssparser to 0.9.9)
* Fixing illegal negative timeout values for HtmlUnitDriver, zero
means infinite wait
* Implementing pageLoadTimeout in HtmlUnitDriver
* Allow users to specify a custom location for Safari's data
directory using the "safari.dataDir" capability.
* Fix for using DesiredCapabilities with WebDriverBackedSelenium
* PhantomJS Driver bindings updated to 1.0.3
* Minimize the number of third party libraries used by the very
heart of the remote webdriver server.
* fix issue where server was appending '?null' to all forwarded
* Issues fixed: 5293, 4902, 5283, 5278
(summary not created, check version history logs)
* Fixing a bug introduced by a change in how we get already logged
messages from the console service in firefox. This allows us to
function with firefox 19
* FIXED: 1181: Improved loopback detection
* FIXED: 1627: Implementing ability to use auto proxy in
* FIXED: 3652: moveToElement with offset should consider 0 as a
valid value, not as "undefined".
* FIXED: 3868: Better ephemeral port range selection.
* FIXED: 4107: Added prebuilt version of the SafariDriver extension
to the client jar.
* FIXED: 4821: WebDriverBackedSelenium works when added to project
via maven.
* FIXED: 4940, 5075: Added iceweasel to list of firefox variants.
* FIXED: 5022: Text node with overflow:hidden and height/width 0 to
not be visible since we cant see them.
* FIXED: 5030: Only send files to upload, not directories.

predicate message.
* FIXED: 5109: We should show elements visible if there is a pixel
* Semi-private change: Changes in the Coordinate class.
* Update WebDriverJS to support parallel flows. This change renames
several low-level classes and functions in the promise module:
promise.Application -> promise.ControlFlow
#schedule(string, function) -> #execute(function, [string])
#scheduleTimeout(string, number) -> #timeout(number, [string])
#scheduleWait(string, function, number, [string]) -> #wait(function, number, [string])
The old schedule* functions are still present, but will print a
warning message if called. They will be removed in 2.31.
* Added ability to use relative path to an -htmlSuite file.
* FIXED: 3498: Proxy based browsers are back to normal on HTTPS
* FIXED: 5113: Implementing GET requests support for RC protocol.
* Firefox 18 support.
* IEDriver supports "requireWindowFocus" desired capability. When
using this and native events, the IE driver will demand focus and
user interactions will use SendInput() for simulating user
interactions. Note that this will mean you MUST NOT use the
machine running IE for anything else as the tests are running.
* Use the "webdriver.remote.shorten_log_messages" system property to
reduce the verboseness of ouput from executeScript and
executeAsyncScript when using the RemoteWebDriver.
* Switching HtmlUnitDriver default from FIREFOX_3_6 to FIREFOX_10

known-element cache of invalid elements after every page
load. This is intended to keep memory usage down and improve
performance. However, it is an intrusive change, so this
capability is provided temporarily to allow disabling this
behavior if problems arise. The default of this new capability is
"true", meaning this behavior is turned on by default.
* Added shift key handling to the synthetic keyboard actions.
* Modifying scroll behavior in IE driver SendKeysCommandHandler to
call Element::GetLocationOnceScrolledIntoView() instead of calling
the DOM scrollIntoView() function. Should result in less page

and implemented basic support for these in the firefox
driver. Failure to fulfull a required capability will cause a
SessionNotCreatedException to be thrown.
* Added the ability to determine how unhandled alerts should be
handled. This is handled by the "unexpectedAlertBehaviour"
capability, which can be one of "accept", "dismiss" or
"ignore". Java code should use the UnexpectedAlertBehaviour
enum. This is only implemented in Firefox for now.
* Allow native events to be configured in Firefox and
(experimentally) in IE using the "nativeEvents" capability.
