HtmlUnit 2.6 has just been released! A ton of work has gone into this release, so I hope people find it useful.
- Marc Guillemot tweaked the caching infrastructure a bit, which should result in improved performance, especially for those of you hitting remote websites for scraping and such.
- Ahmed Ashour has fixed quite a few bugs in a focused effort to make it easier for the GWT folks to incorporate HtmlUnit.
- Our WebClient serialization support was very broken in 2.5; this has now been fixed.
- Many, many more bugfixes!
Give it a try and let us know what you think!

As per Simon’s post on the WebDriver mailing list, WebDriver and Selenium are starting the merge that will define Selenium 2.0… wasn’t Selenium 1.0 just released a couple of months ago? And didn’t they take something like 6 years to get to 1.0? Things are certainly speeding up! Anyone care to place a bet on how far out 2.0 is?

Ahmed Ashour and I will be talking about HtmlUnit today at 2:50 PM (room 301). We’ll be discussing browser driving tools and browser simulation tools, their pros and cons, and where HtmlUnit fits into the landscape. Stop by if you’re interested in web application integration testing in general, and HtmlUnit in particular!

If you’re at TheServerSide Java Symposium this week and are interested in web application testing, be sure to stop by the session that Marc Guillemot and I will be presenting — HtmlUnit: An Efficient Approach to Testing Web Applications (Wednesday @ 2:40). We’ll be talking about the strengths (and limitations) of HtmlUnit and the browser emulation approach which it espouses.
If you’re already a user, stop by the Meet-Up for Selenium, soapUI, HtmlUnit and Other Test Tools (Wednesday @ 1:15), hosted by Frank Cohen. It should be a good opportunity to see how others in the community are meeting their testing requirements; I’m sure I myself will learn something new.
