Four months after release 1.14, I’m glad to announce the availability of HtmlUnit 2.0. Thanks to everyone who has contributed to this release and particularly to the committers Ahmed Ashour and Daniel Gredler.
From the large list of improvements contained in this release, following are particularly important:
– first release to target Java 5: HtmlUnit now makes intensive usage of Java 5 features, particularly of generics
– HtmlUnit DOM now implements org.w3c.dom.* making interaction with 3rd party libraries easier
– improved support for incorrect HTML code
– and as always a very large number of improvements in JS support with a major achievement: the GWT 1.4 tests now pass when simulating Firefox as well as when simulating Internet Explorer!
This major release contains a few incompatible changes and can’t be dropped as a replacement of HtmlUnit-1.14.
