  2. New built-in mocking framework: Simply call the new mock() method to create a new mocked object and inject that into your component under test.
  3. New integrated HTML view: This replaces the existing HTML and ExtJS view and is backward compatible.
  4. New beforeTests() and afterTests() for component-level set up and tear down.
  5. New and improved documentation and bug tracking at and
  6. Ant task improvement: now you can send arbitrary URL parameters to your custom runners.
  7. New Ant build.xml examples and Hudson-friendly examples.
  8. More Eclipse snippets!
  9. More Dataprovider improvements.
  10. Eclipse plugin data compare tool.
  11. Multiple Github fork(s) (
  12. Office Hours every other Monday at 12:00pm US Eastern Time. Join in via Adobe Connect and bring any testing or other technical questions or topics:

Tim Farrar
Peter Farrell
Patrick McElhaney
Randy Merrill
Bob Silverberg
John Whish
