Performance, Performance, Performance

There are no new features in this release, just an overhaul to how Watir handles Selenium wire calls. You can read more in the previous article on the release candidate. We’d love to hear how much this speeds up your tests, and as always, let us know if you find bugs

See the Changelog for the complete history of updates.
