Watir 7.0.0 is now available on RubyGems. It requires Ruby 2.6+ and Selenium 4.0 which was just released last week.
It’s been a long road since Watir 6.0 was released almost 5 years ago. That version was a substantial reenvisiong
of Watir’s default approach to automation, especially as it relates to Selenium. It was designed to combine
the original philosophy of Watir with the power of Selenium. Watir 7 is mostly just a much more
stable and performant implementation of that vision. As of this release, there are no outstanding Pull Requests
or reported bugs in our Issue Tracker!
