Sneak Peek into Selenium 3.0


At a 2013 conference session, Simon Stewart, the Selenium project lead and inventor of WebDriver, announced that Selenium 3.0, a widely used tool for user-focused automation of mobile and web apps, would be released by Christmas. Three years after that announcement, Selenium 3.0 still hasn’t been released, but this month we got more information about Selenium 3.0 and a more likely release time frame. On 25th May 2016, in a webinar, Stewart did reveal further details about Selenium 3.0. The webinar only had room for 1,000 participants, but the registration list was well over 10,000.

We at Gallop Solutions, Silver Sponsors of Selenium project, bring you the highlights of the announcement and provide insights into roadmap of Selenium project in our webinar.

In this webinar we covered:

  • Big changes regarding old Selenium core libraries and focus on Webdriver API
  • Impact or changes to WebDriver API of Selenium 2.0
  • Changes in the Selenium Java APIs
  • Advantages of having W3C WebDriver specifications
  • Increasing importance of browser vendors
  • Roadmap of Selenium

This webinar is based on things we have known from our direct references and information obtained in SeleniumHQ webinars. Folks attending the webinar would gain insights on Selenium 3.0 & what changes are needed to be done to the existing Selenium suites to make them 3.0 ready. We will also cover a peek view into the Selenium roadmap beyond 3.0, that is, 4.0 and 5.0. View the webinar recording below.
