Whatโ€™s new in 0.9

Sessionless keywords are now available, you can just GET, POST, etc.. no need to create a session anymore!

${resp}=  GET  https://www.google.com

Status Should Be and Request Should Be Successfull can use the last response, no need to pass the response anymore!

GET  https://www.google.com
Status Should Be  200

Whatโ€™s new in 0.8

New keywords structure: All requests keywords have been rewritten because of many not backward compatible changes and to allow in the near future requests keywords without a session. Example Get Request become GET On Session and soon there will be also just GET when a session is not needed. Old keywords * Request are now deprecated and will be removed in 1.0.0 version.

Implicit assert on status code: * On Session keywords automatically fail if an error status code is returned. expect_status= could be used to specify a status code (201, OK, Bad request) or any if you want to evaluate the response in any case.

Closer to the original Requests library: New keywords have the same parameter orders and structure as the original. Lot of pre-parsing / encoding has been removed to have a more accurate and unchanged behaviour.

Cleaner project architecture: Main keywords file has been split with a more logic division to allow better and faster maintenance.
