Robot Framework 5.1 beta 2 is out!

Robot Framework 5.1 starts our localization efforts and provides also many other nice features as well as performance enhancements. For details about everything that’s new see the release notes.

We got Turkish translations since beta 1 and now the list of all supported languages is:

  • Bosnian (BS)
  • Czech (CS)
  • Dutch (NL)
  • English (EN)
  • Finnish (FI)
  • French (FR)
  • German (DE)
  • Polish (PL)
  • Portuguese (PT) and Brazilian Portuguese (PT-BR)
  • Russian (RU)
  • Simplified Chinese (ZH-CN)
  • Spanish (ES)
  • Thai (TH)
  • Turkish (TR)
  • Ukrainian (UK)

Also the support for embedded arguments was enhanced since beta 1. Most importantly, Robot can now often automatically resolve conflicts when a keyword that is used matches multiple implementations.

We try to get the first release candidate out early next week. After that we only add fixes to critical bugs, so if there’s a language you’d like to be added or you have any other enhancement in mind, now it’s time to act!

Huge thanks for all the contributors as well as for the Robot Framework Foundation for sponsoring my work!
