WebPagetest 2.9


From SVN (requires a client that can follow externals references for files): svn co https://webpagetest.googlecode.com/svn/tags/webpagetest/2.9/

Changes from WebPagetest 2.8:

Web Server

  • Added support for retrying failed tests X times automatically if retry=X is specified when a test is submitted
  • Integrated with cloudshark for viewing tcpdumps online
  • The gzip compression test now looks at all resources regardless of mime type
  • Added a headless=1 setting that forces WebPagetest into API/relay-only mode
  • Fixed the reporting of Visual Progress in the XML results
  • Fixed querying of the status of remote locations

Test Agent

  • wptdriver:
    • Added support for IE 10
    • Added support for Safari (Windows)
    • Improved the support for reporting on Chrome SSL requests
    • Fixed an issue where test commands to the browser extension that were larger than 512 bytes would fail (so, any url to be tested that was longer than ~400 bytes would fail).
  • URLBlast (legacy IE testing):
    • Fixed support for blocking requests that are a result of a redirect
  • Improvements common to both agents:
    • Added support for traffic shaping on 64-bit Windows (32-bit browsers only)
    • Added the "setActivityTimeout" script command that allows for control over the network activity timeout
