Cypress v6.1.0 Release Notes

Release Date: 2020-12-07 // over 3 years ago
  • ๐Ÿš€ Released 12/07/2020

    ๐Ÿ”‹ Features:

    • ๐Ÿ”ง There's a new scrollBehavior configuration option that controls the viewport position when an element is scrolled prior to action commands. Possible values are 'top', 'bottom', 'center', 'nearest', and false, with 'top' being the default. scrollBehavior: false disables scrolling altogether. scrollBehavior can be specified in global configuration, test configuration or individual action commands via options. Addresses #871 and #4356.
    • โœ… The Tests tab in the Test Runner now orders folders before files. This matches the ordering of most IDEs' file explorers. Addresses #7334.

    ๐Ÿ›  Bugfixes:

    • ๐Ÿ›  Responses stubbed from cy.intercept() will now automatically set Access-Control-Allow-Origin and Access-Control-Allow-Credentials to permissive values unless explicitly overridden. Fixes #9264.
    • The Cannot read property "fireChangeEvent" of undefined error will no longer throw during a race condition when using cy.intercept(). #9170
    • ๐Ÿ›  HTTP responses that cannot have a body (like HTTP 304 and HTTP 204) can now be awaited using cy.intercept(). Fixes #8934 and #8999.
    • ๐Ÿ›  We fixed an issue where HTTP redirects could not be awaited using cy.intercept() unless dynamically intercepted. Addressed in #9097.
    • โœ… Tests will no longer hang in certain situations when there's an error in a before() hook. Fixes #9162.
    • ๐Ÿ›  We no longer strip / from URLs when they are explicitly passed with query paramaters. Fixes #9360.

    ๐Ÿ—„ Deprecations:

    ๐Ÿš€ Deprecations still work as before but will be removed from Cypress in a future release. We encourage you to update your code now to remove uses of deprecations.

    • ๐Ÿš€ Cypress.moment has been deprecated and will be replaced in a future release. Consider migrating to a different datetime formatter. Addresses #8714.


    • ๐Ÿ‘ We collect more environment variables from Bitbucket to better detect reruns. Addresses #9309.
    • waitForAnimations and animationDistanceThreshold types are now included for all actionable commands. Addresses #8854.

    โšก๏ธ Dependency Updates:

    • โฌ†๏ธ Upgraded mocha-junit-reporter from 1.23.1 to 2.0.0. Addressed in #9528.
