Seam 3.0 RC3 Released

The third release candidate of Seam 3.0 has been announced, following a number of last minute API changes. In this release, the @SeamManaged annotation has been moved into Seam Solder, and all the transaction-related classes have been refactored so they are in their own package. Typesafe logging has been added, and all known issues with Seam’s Glassfish support have been addressed. Seam 3.0 Final is scheduled for a release before the end of the month.

Selenium 2.0 Beta 3 Adds Firefox 4 Support

The third beta of Selenium 2.0 is out now. In this release of the Selenium browser automation framework, support for IDE 9 and Firefox 4 has been added, alongside experimental IME support on Windows. The user interaction API and Java webdriver-backed selenium have both been improved. Selenium can be downloaded now from the Google Code site. The next release will add support for Grid 2.0.

Firebug 1.7.0 is Final!

Firebug 1.7.0 is Final! Following eleven alphas and four betas, Firebug 1.7.0 fixes three bugs reported in the previous beta, including problems with the html tabs and DOM elements. This release of Firebug adds full compatibility with Firefox 4, a new API for Firebug extensions and support for local, session and global storage examination in the DOM and Console panels. Firebug integrates with Firefox, allowing users to edit, debug and monitor CSS, HTML, and JavaScript live in web pages.
