Announcing technical preview of Siesta 6 | Bryntum

Siesta 5 goes into maintenance mode

Siesta 5 will remain supported for the foreseeable future. All the Bryntum products have Siesta 5 test suites (thousands of tests in total) and we rely fully on Siesta 5 to keep our releases green and stable. We will continue to fix bugs and release patch versions as requested by our community and customers.

Changes in licensing

Siesta 5 exists as two packages — siesta-lite which is freely available on npm under a proprietary license, and the fullsiesta version – a paid version under a proprietary license.

Project status

We consider the server-side testing functionality to be stable and feature complete. Siesta 6 can be used right now to write tests for Node.js/Deno projects.

What’s new

In version 6, Siesta becomes a truly ubiquitous testing tool — it can run tests in browsers, Node.js and Deno. Tests written for “ isomorphic” code can be run unmodified in all these three target environments! One test tool to run them all 😈

Next steps

Our immediate goal is to reach feature parity with version 5 in the area of Web testing. This includes building the graphical UI, adding support for simulating user actions, and the user actions recorder.
