Robot Framework 6.0 rc 2 has been released!

Robot Framework 6.0 is a new major release that starts Robot Framework’s localization efforts. In addition to that, it contains several nice enhancements related to, for example, automatic argument conversion and using embedded arguments. To learn everything that’s new and enhanced see the release notes.

Second release candidate was needed because we wanted to add some features that make IDE integration easier. As a nice bonus we got five new translations, Bulgarian, Hindi, Italian, Romanian and Swedish, as well! The full list of languages supported by RF 6.0 out-of-the-box, is below:

  • Bosnian (bs)
  • Bulgarian (bg) (new in rc 2)
  • Chinese Simplified (zh-CN) and Chinese Traditional (zh-TW)
  • Czech (cs)
  • Dutch (nl)
  • English (en) (automatically enabled)
  • Finnish (fi)
  • French (fr)
  • German (de)
  • Hindi (hi) (new in rc 2)
  • Italian (it) (new in rc 2)
  • Polish (pl)
  • Portuguese (pt) and Brazilian Portuguese (pt-BR)
  • Romanian (ro) (new in rc 2)
  • Russian (ru)
  • Spanish (es)
  • Swedish (sv) (new in rc 2)
  • Thai (th)
  • Turkish (tr)
  • Ukrainian (uk)

The final release is planned for next Tuesday. There’s thus one week to test this release candidate and help us iron out possible regressions so that you can use the final release without problems.

Huge thanks to all contributors, too many to be listed here but everyone is mentioned in the release notes, and for Robot Framework Foundation for sponsoring my work!
