  • Explicit stopping of Selenium node instances at stopNode, preventing some timeout issues.
  • Prevent a rare case of an NPE in SSL debug output.
  • Bugfix: changeKeyboardLayout function does now work properly, but is still not recommended for use; attribute keyboard-layout should be set on VM creation instead to prevent VNC misbehaviour.
  • Bugfix: waitState does not wait if a VM is already destroyed.

Version 0.3.30 (released on June 13th, 2016)

  • Improve exception messages of the VMNeverReadyException and throw it earlier in some cases.
  • Create a merged version of Scaladoc and Javadoc in the Javadoc jar, so that IDEs can display Scaladoc information on our Scala classes if they can only read Javadoc.
  • Bugfix: findVMs (introduced in 0.3.29) misbehaved in some cases.

This release received a small hotfix to the Javadoc jars:

  • In the very first build, accidentally the Javadoc of the testcase-api was not built at all, as it did not contain any Scaladoc. This was hotfixed so all Javadoc jars contain the full Javadoc.
  • No labels
