- Updated URL of bug tracker.

- `script` extra no longer requires `elementtree` on Python >= 2.5.

0.13 (2012-01-30)

- Added a selenese assert type 'list' and added it to the window management
  query methods.

- API expansion: added ``openWindow``.

- API change: filter the result of ``getAllWindowNames`` to ignore 'null'.

- backwards-compatible API change: ``selectWindow`` now selects the main
  window also when passed the window id ``None`` or no argument at all.

- pinned compatible ZTK version to 1.0.1, grok version to 1.2.1, generally

- Described how to test a Zope 2/Plone application if using `plone.testing`
  to set up test layers.

0.10.1 (2011-02-02)

- Improvements on the README.

- Wrote a quick start section for packages using ZTK but using
  ```` instead of ````.

- Allowed to use `regexp` as pattern prefix for regular expressions
  additionally to `regex` to be compatible with the docstring and the
  Selenium documentation.

0.10 (2011-01-18)

- Script that generates python tests from Selenium HTML tables.
  Reused from KSS project, courtesy of Jeroen Vloothuis, original author.

- Using a URL of `Selenium RC` in README where version 1.0.3 can be
  downloaded (instead of 1.0.1) which works fine with Firefox on Mac OS X,

0.9 (2010-12-28)

- Provide integration with the recent testlayer approach
  ( used by Grok (#8260).
- Provide integration with plone.testing
- Make browser and RC server configurable (#6484).
- Show current test case in command log (#7876).
- Raise readable error when connection to RC server fails (#6489).
- Quit browser when the testrunner terminates (#6485).

0.8 (2010-10-22)

- Fixed tests for the StaticFilesLayer to pass with Python 2.4 through 2.7.
- API expansion: ``getSelectOptions``

0.7 (2010-08-16)

- API expansion: ``getElementHeight|Width``, ``getCookie*`` and a few others.
- lots of action methods (``mouse*`` among others)

0.6 (2010-08-09)

- assertXpathCount now also takes ints (#7681).

- API expansion: add ``isChecked`` to verify checkboxes, ``runScript``,
  ``clickAt``, ``getLocation``, ``getSelectedValue``, ``getSelectedIndex``.

- The ``pause`` method uses float division now. Pauses where implicitly rounded
  to full seconds before when an int was passed.

- The name of the factored test layer contains the module of the bases now. The
  name is used by zope.testrunner distinguish layers. Before this fix selenium
  layers factored from base layers with the same names but in different modules
  would be considered equal by zope.testrunner.

- The factored ZTK layer cleanly shuts down the http server in tearDown now.
  This allows to run different selenium layers in one go.

0.5 (2010-08-03)

- Add a static files test layer for running selenium tests against a set
  of static (HTML) files.
- Patterns now also work with multiline strings,
  i. e. 'foo*' will match 'foo\nbar' (#7790).

- API expansion: ``*keyDown``, ``*keyUp``, ``keyPress``.

0.4.1 (2010-04-01)

- API expansion: added ``getSelectedLabel``.

- Ignore the code of a server's response when calling `open`. The default
  behaviour of SeleniumRC changed between 1.0.1 and 1.0.2 but we want the old
  behaviour by default.

0.4 (2010-03-30)

- API expansion: add ``getLocation`` to retrieve currently loaded URL in

- API expansion: added ``waitForPopUp``, ``selectPopUp``, ``deselectPopUp``
  and ``close``.

- API expansion: added ``verifyAlertPresent``, ``verifyAlertNotPresent`` and

- Usability: raise a better readable exception when an unimplemented selenese
  method is called.

- Usability: raise failure exceptions that convey the name of the failed
  assertion in spite of some lambdas wrapped around it.

0.3 (2010-01-12)

- Extracted 'host' and 'port' as class attributes of gocept.selenium.ztk.Layer
  so subclasses can override them; stopped hardcoding 8087 as the server port.

- Fix incomplete sdist release on PyPI.

0.2 (2009-12-18)
