A Smattering of Selenium #53
Well, since the last Smattering there hasn’t been much in the community. Oh. Well, except for hitting the 2.0.0 milestone. Which seems like a good time to remind people that:
- Selenium is the project name
- Selenium 1 is a project version
- Selenium 2 is a project version
- Selenium Remote Control (RC) is an API name
- Selenium WebDriver is an API name
- A person upgrades from Selenium 1 to Selenium 2
- A person migrates from RC to WebDriver
And with that soap boxing, here are some links for your consumption.
