For more information on this release, including a full list of enhancements, bug fixes, and upgrade advice, visit the release notes. While this is a new major release with a few backwards-incompatible changes, we’ve taken extra care to make sure that only a very small number of tweaks are necessary for an initial upgrade from Intern 1 (usually just updating the tunnel configuration), so in less than 15 minutes you should be up and running with everything that Intern 2 has to offer.
If you or your team would like assistance upgrading your test suite to use all the features of Intern 2, or if you are looking to have a new feature added to Intern, SitePen is here to help with expert advice, support, and custom development services. Get in touch today to learn how we can help.
