I am trying to migrate to 0.12.0 but I stumbled in a problem with the class attribute selector. I have a Module with the following content:

static content = {
  userMenuButton { $('a', class: 'user-menu-button') }

The above code works with GEB 0.10.0 but throws the following exception with 0.12.0:

geb.error.RequiredPageContentNotPresent: The required page content 'userMenuButton - SimplePageContent (owner: module.UserMenuModule@4c2d6108, args: [], value: null)' is not present
at geb.content.TemplateDerivedPageContent.require(TemplateDerivedPageContent.groovy:68)

at spec.authentication.LoginLogoutSpec.can logout from MyApp(LoginLogoutSpec.groovy:37)

It works if I change the code without using the class attribute:

static content = {
  userMenuButton { $('a.user-menu-button') }

Please notice that the element has multiple classes.

I'm just finding my way around Geb, so I apologize if I'm out of line here, but shouldn't that be:

static content = {
    userMenuButton { $('a', class:contains('user-menu-button') }

I believe that looking for class as you have in your OP fails because of the additional classes.

No @treyturner, it should work the way @fabriziofortino expects it to work. That was the behaviour prior to 0.12.0 and it is a bug I introduced while working on #280.

Doh, I could swear I had problems selecting this way in 0.10.0. Good to know though, I'll stay at 0.10.0 for now, thanks.
