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!
Watir 7.0.0.beta3 is now available on RubyGems. This update includes bug fixes
and things that were intended for the last release for Capabilities but overlooked.
Watir 7.0.0.beta2 is now available on RubyGems. This is all the additions and optimizations that were dependent on
removing the deprecated code in Beta 1. Watir Repo now has zero outstanding bugs! The Issues list contains 2 optimizations
and 2 feature requests which we may or may not get to before Watir 7.0 is released. Expect production release of
Watir 7.0 as soon as Selenium 4.0 is released.
