Changed

  • Hard version requirement on Ruby >= 1.9.3. Capybara will no longer install on 1.8.7. [Felix Schäfer]
  • Capybara no longer depends on the selenium-webdriver gem. Add it to your Gemfile if you wish to use the Selenium driver. [Jonas Nicklas]
  • Capybara.ignore_hidden_elements defaults to true. [Jonas Nicklas]
  • In case of multiple matches smart matching is used by default. Set Capybara.match = :one to revert to old behaviour. [Jonas Nicklas].
  • Options in select boxes use smart matching and no longer need to match exactly. Set Capybara.exact_options = false to revert to old behaviour. [Jonas Nicklas].
  • Visibility of text depends on Capybara.ignore_hidden_elements instead of always returning only visible text. Set Capybara.visible_text_only = true to revert to old behaviour. [Jonas Nicklas]
  • Cucumber cleans up session after scenario instead. This is consistent with RSpec and makes more sense, since we raise server errors in reset!. [Jonas Nicklas]

Added

  • All actions (click_link, fill_in, etc...) and finders now take an options hash, which is passed through to find. [Jonas Nicklas]
  • CSS selectors are sent straight through to driver instead of being converted to XPath first. Enables the use of some pseudo selectors, such as invalid in some drivers. [Thomas Walpole]
  • Capybara.asset_host option, which inserts a base tag into the page on save_and_open_page, eases debugging with the Rails asset pipeline. [Steve Hull]
  • exact option, can specify whether to match substrings or entire text. [Jonas Nicklas]
  • match option, can specify behaviour in case of multiple matches. [Jonas Nicklas]
  • wait option, can specify how long to wait for a given action/finder. [Jonas Nicklas]
  • Config option which disables bubbling of errors raised inside server. [Jonas Nicklas]
  • text now takes a parameter which makes it possible to return either all text or only visible text. The default depends on Capybara.ignore_hidden_elements. Capybara.visible_text_only option is available for compatibility. [Jonas Nicklas]
  • has_content? and has_text? now take the same count options as has_selector? [Andrey Botalov]
  • current_scope is now public API, returns the current element when within is used. [Martijn Walraven]
  • find("input").disabled? returns true if a node is disabled. [Ben Lovell]
  • Find disabled fields and buttons with :disabled => false. [Jonas Nicklas]
  • find("input").hover moves the mouse to the element in supported drivers. [Thomas Walpole]
  • RackTest driver now support form attribute on form elements. [Thomas Walpole]
  • page.title returns the page title. [Terry Progetto]
  • has_title? matcher to assert on page title. [Jonas Nicklas]

Version 2.0.2

Release date: 2012-12-31

Changed

  • Capybara no longer uses thin as a server if it is available, due to thread safety issues. Now Capybara always defaults to WEBrick. [Jonas Nicklas]

Fixed

  • Suppress several warnings [Kouhei Sutou]
  • Fix default host becoming nil [Brian Cardarella]
  • Fix regression in 2.0.1 which caused node comparisons with non node objects to throw an exception [Kouhei Sotou]
  • A few changes to the specs, only relevant to driver authors [Jonas Nicklas]
  • Encoding error under JRuby [Piotr Krawiec]
  • Ruby 2 encoding fix [Murahashi Sanemat Kenichi]
  • Catch correct exception on server timeout [Jonathan del Strother]

Version 2.0.1

Release date: 2012-12-21

Changed

  • Move the RackTest driver override with the :respect_data_method option enabled from capybara/rspec to capybara/rails, so that it is enabled in Rails projects that don't use RSpec. [Carlos Antonio da Silva]
  • source is now an alias for html. RackTest no longer returns modifications to html. This basically codifies the behaviour which we've had for a while anyway, and should have minimal impact for end users. For driver authors, it means that they only have to implement html, and not source. [Jonas Nicklas]

Fixed

  • Visiting relative URLs when app_host is set and no server is running works as expected. [Jonas Nicklas]
  • fill_in works properly under Selenium again when the caret is not at the end of the field before the method is called. [Douwe Maan, Jonas Nicklas, Jari Bakken]
  • attach_file can once again be given a Pathname [Jake Goulding]

Version 2.0.0

Release date: 2012-11-05

Changed

  • Dropped official support for Ruby 1.8.x. [Jonas Nicklas]
  • respect_data_method default to false for the RackTest driver in non-rails applications. That means that Capybara no longer picks up data-method="post" et. al. from links by default when you haven't required capybara/rails [Jonas Nicklas]
  • find now raises an error if more than one element was found. Since find is used by most actions, like click_link under the surface, this means that all actions need to unambiguous in the future. [Jonas Nicklas]
  • All methods which find or manipulate fields or buttons now ignore them when they are disabled. [Jonas Nicklas]
  • Can no longer find elements by id via find(:foo), use find("#foo") or find_by_id("foo") instead. [Jonas Nicklas]
  • Element#text on RackTest now only returns visible text and normalizes (strips) whitespace, as with Selenium [Mark Dodwell, Jo Liss]
  • has_content? now checks the text value returned by Element#text, as opposed to querying the DOM. Which means it does not match hidden text. [Ryan Montgomery, Mark Dodwell, Jo Liss]
  • #394: #body now returns the unmodified source (like #source), not the current state of the DOM (like #html), by popular request [Jonas Nicklas]
  • Node#all no longer returns an array, but rather an enumerable Capybara::Result [Jonas Nicklas]
  • The arguments to select and unselect needs to be the exact text of an option in a select box, substrings are no longer allowed [Jonas Nicklas]
  • The options option to has_select? must match the exact set of options. Use with_options for the old behaviour. [Gonzalo Rodriguez]
  • The selected option to has_select? must match all selected options for multiple selects. [Gonzalo Rodriguez]
  • Various internals for running driver specs, this should only affect driver authors [Jonas Nicklas]
  • Rename Driver#body to Driver#html (relevant only for driver authors) [Jo Liss]

Removed

  • No longer possible to specify failure_message for custom selectors. [Jonas Nicklas]
  • #589: Capybara.server_boot_timeout has been removed in favor of a higher (60-second) hard-coded timeout [Jo Liss]

  • The :resynchronize option has been removed from the Selenium driver [Jonas Nicklas]
  • The rows option to has_table? has been removed without replacement. [Jonas Nicklas]

Added

  • Much improved error message [Jonas Nicklas]
  • Errors from inside the session for apps running in a server are raised when session is reset [James Tucker, Jonas Nicklas]
  • A ton of new selectors built in out of the box, like field, link, button, etc... [Adam McCrea, Jonas Nicklas]
  • has_text? has been added as an alias for has_content? [Jonas Nicklas]
  • Add Capybara.server_host option (default: 127.0.0.1) [David Balatero]
  • Add :type option for page.has_field? [Gonzalo Rodríguez]
  • Custom matchers can now be specified in CSS in addition to XPath [Jonas Nicklas]
  • Node#synchronize method to rerun a block of code if certain errors are raised [Jonas Nicklas]
  • Capybara.always_include_port config option always includes the server port in URLs when using visit. Facilitates testing different domain names. [Douwe Maan]
  • Redirect limit for RackTest driver is configurable [Josh Lane]
  • Server port can be manually specified during initialization of server. [Jonas Nicklas, John Wilger]
  • has_content? and has_text? can be given a regular expression [Vasiliy Ermolovich]
  • Multiple files can be uploaded with attach_file [Jarl Friis]

Fixed

  • Nodes found via all are no longer reloaded. This fixes weird quirks where nodes would seemingly randomly replace themselves with other nodes [Jonas Nicklas]
  • Session is only reset if it has been modified, dramatically improves performance if only part of the test suite runs Capybara. [Jonas Nicklas]
  • Test suite now passes on Ruby 1.8 [Jo Liss]
  • #565: require 'capybara/dsl' is no longer necessary [Jo Liss]
  • Rack::Test now respects ports when changing hosts [Jo Liss]
  • #603: Rack::Test now preserves the original referer URL when following a redirect [Rob van Dijk]
  • Rack::Test now does not send a referer when calling visit multiple times [Jo Liss]
  • Exceptions during server boot now propagate to main thread [James Tucker]
  • RSpec integration now cleans up before the test instead of after [Darwin]
  • If respect_data_method is true, the data-method attribute can be capitalized [Marco Antonio]
  • Rack app boot timing out raises an error as opposed to just logging to STDOUT [Adrian Irving-Beer]
  • #source returns an empty string instead of nil if no pages have been visited [Jonas Nicklas]
  • Ignore first leading newline in textareas in RackTest [Vitalii Khustochka]
  • within_frame returns the value of the given block [Alistair Hutchison]
  • Running Node.set on text fields will not trigger more than one change event [Andrew Kasper]
  • Throw an error when an option is given to a finder method, like all or has_selector? which Capybara doesn't understand [Jonas Nicklas]
  • Two references to the node now register as equal when comparing them with == [Jonas Nicklas]
  • has_text (has_content) now accepts non-string arguments, like numbers. [Jo Liss]
  • has_text and text now correctly normalize Unicode whitespace, such as &nbsp;. [Jo Liss]
  • RackTest allows protocol relative URLs [Jonas Nicklas]
  • Arguments are cast to string where necessary, so that e.g. click_link(:foo) works as expected. [Jonas Nicklas]
  • :count => 0 now works as expected [Jarl Friis]
  • Fixed race conditions on negative assertions when removing nodes [Jonas Nicklas]

Version 1.1.4

Release date: 2012-11-28

Fixed

  • Fix more race conditions on negative assertions. [Jonas Nicklas]

Version 1.1.3

Release date: 2012-10-30

Fixed:

  • RackTest driver ignores leading newline in textareas, this is consistent with the spec and how browsers behave. [Vitalii Khustochka]
  • Nodes found via all and first are never reloaded. This fixes issues where a node would sometimes magically turn into a completely different node. [Jonas Nicklas]
  • Fix race conditions on negative assertions. This fixes issues where removing an element and asserting on its non existence could cause StaleElementReferenceError and similar to be thrown. [Jonas Nicklas]
  • Options are no longer lost when reloading elements. This fixes issues where reloading an element would cause a non-matching element to be found, because options to find were ignored. [Jonas Nicklas]

Version 1.1.2

Release date: 2011-11-15

Fixed

  • #541: Make attach_file work with selenium-webdriver >=2.12 [Jonas Nicklas]

Version 0.3.7

Release date: 2010-04-09

This is a drop in compatible maintainance release. It's mostly important for driver authors.

Added

  • RackTest scans for data-method which rails3 uses to change the request method

Fixed

  • visit now accepts fully qualified URLs for drivers that support it.
  • Capybara will always try to run a rack server, unless you set Capybara.run_sever = false

Changed

  • thin is preferred over mongrel and webrick, since it is Ruby 1.9 compatible

Added

  • Much improved error messages in a multitude of places
  • More semantic page querying with has_link?, has_button?, etc...
  • Option to ignore hidden elements when querying and interacting with the page
  • Support for multiple selects

Fixed

  • find_by_id is no longer broken
  • clicking links where the image's alt attribute contains the text is now possible
  • within_fieldset and within_table work when the default selector is CSS
  • boolean attributes work the same across drivers (return true/false)
