Windmill Web testing framework releases version 0.8.2

Windmill is an open-source framework for automated testing of dynamic Web apps, which originated at the Open Source Applications Foundation.

The Windmill team recently released version 0.8.2, with some great new features:

  • Integrated Firebug Lite support
  • wxWindmill contrib application
  • Enhanced ‘smart’ recorder
  • Auto element-scroll-into-view to simulate actual use more closely

The core team is hard at work on more new-feature goodness, as well as relentlessly squashing bugs as they crop up. You can usually find them in IRC (#windmill on Freenode.net), or follow their progress on the developer mailing list. They recently migrated to brand-new infrastructure and a shiny new Web site.

Check out their introductory screencast to see the newest Windmill release in action.

There’s also a Windmill Book that provides step-by-step instructions on how to get started. Windmill has a cross-platform recorder that will allow you to record and play back tests. Tests can be written in JSON, Python, or JavaScript.
