Hello (fire)watirists!

We are happy to announce that a (very) long-waited (Fire)Watir
1.6.6.rc1 is out! Please grab it now:

Make sure your local gem system is up to date.

gem update --system

run gem -v at the command line, you should be running 1.3.7

gem install (fire)watir --pre

Note: If you're installing on Mac or Linux you'll want to use
firewatir for the gem install.

...and give it a go. Try to use it with your existing test suites and
so on to see if there are any issues.

If there are any problems then:
1) Fix it and send a pull request on Github, our main github repo:
 This is the preferred way of accepting patches, we're happy to work
with you on how to do this, github also has extensive docs on how to
fork and submit a pull request.
2) Add it to our JIRA tracker: http://jira.openqa.org/browse/WTR

If you need help with that let us know.

You can check out changelog at http://github.com/bret/watir/blob/master/CHANGES

With your help, we will be getting out a final version of 1.6.6
shortly and working on continuously rolling out releases on a quick
timeline. We already have actions lined up for 1.6.7 which should be
released fairly quickly as we make our way through the current tickets
and changes and roll them into releases.

If you do have time and can help, please let us know, we can take any
help from documentation to running tests on various OSes. We're a
friendly project and would be happy to mentor you if you and/or your
company is willing to put in the time.

If you're giving it a try then please try to use IE-s #click_no_wait.
Please note that it will be working in 1.8.7 after next release. Also
pay attention to any page loading (#wait method) issues you might get.

I'm asking about these two things because they both are involving some
core changes and thus might cause some unexpected problems.
