Released 2/6/2020

Summary:

Cypress 4.0.0 includes support for Mozilla Firefox browsers (beta support) and Microsoft Edge (Chromium based) browsers which is a big step forward for Cross Browser Testing in Cypress. We've also updated many of the underlying tools behind Cypress that bring new powerful features.

Breaking Changes:

⚠️ Please read our Migration Guide which explains the changes in more detail and how to change your code to migrate to Cypress 4.0.

  • Mocha, Chai, and Sinon.JS has been upgraded which includes a number of breaking changes and new features. Addresses #2528, #2529, #2866.
  • During before:browser:launch, we no longer yield the second argument as an array of browser arguments and instead yield an options object with an args property in order to support more advanced browser launch options. Addresses #6306.
  • We updated the Cypress browser objects of all Chromium-based browsers, including Electron, to have chromium set as their family field. Addresses #6243.
  • The --browser flag no longer accepts canary as its sole argument to run Chrome Canary. You now have to specify chrome:canary to use the Chrome Canary browser. Addresses #6243.
  • cy.writeFile() now yields null instead of the contents written to the file in order to more align with the behavior of fs. Addresses #2466.
