1.1 (2020-01-06)

  • Fixes for various things that broke with more recent versions Firefox/Chrome/geckodriver/chromedriver etc.

    • It is possible that if you are on older versions of Firefox you may have regressions or different behaviour with handling of linebreaks e.g. sending \r\n into textarea.

  • Installation fix so that it can be installed with poetry

  • Tested against more recent Django versions (up to 3.1), and fixed issues.

  • Dropped support for Python 3.3 and 3.4

  • Fixed bug with setting checkboxes if a form had multiple checkboxes of the same name

  • Enabled installation on PyPy (doesn’t necessarily work completely).

  • Test against Django 2.1

  • Removed tests and official support for PhantomJS. (No actual functionality was changed regarding PhantomJS).
