Upcoming Deprecations

The following classes/modules have been moved to the run-loop gem. They will be deprecated and replaced with their run-loop equivalents in future releases.

  • Calabash::Cucumber::Version
  • Calabash::Cucumber::SimulatorAccessibility
  • Calabash::Cucumber::XcodeTools
  • Calabash::Cucumber::PlistBuddy

Upcoming Changes

We are exploring deprecating the calabash_exit method. This might break code coverage support. We think this change will provide a more stable test environment in Xcode 6.
