1.2.1 (2014-10-16)

  • Dockerfile base image is downgraded to Ubuntu 12.04 to fix random crashes;
  • Debian/buildbot config is fixed to make Splash UI available when deployed from deb;
  • Qt / PyQt / sip / WebKit / Twisted version numbers are logged at startup.

1.2 (2014-10-14)

  • All Splash rendering endpoints now accept Content-Type: application/json POST requests with JSON-encoded rendering options as an alternative to using GET parameters;
  • headers parameter allows to set HTTP headers (including user-agent) for all endpoints - previously it was possible only in proxy mode;
  • js_source parameter allows to execute JS in page context without application/javascript POST requests;
  • testing suite is switched to pytest, test running can now be parallelized;
  • viewport size changes are logged;
  • /debug endpoint provides leak info for more classes;
  • Content-Type header parsing is less strict;
  • documentation improvements;
  • various internal code cleanups.

1.1 (2014-10-10)

  • An UI is added - it allows to quickly check Splash features.
  • Splash can now return requests/responses information in HAR format. See render.har endpoint and har argument of render.json endpoint. A simpler history argument is also available. With HAR support it is possible to get timings for various events, HTTP status code of the responses, HTTP headers, redirect chains, etc.
  • Processing of related resources is stopped earlier and more robustly in case of timeouts.
  • wait parameter changed its meaning: waiting now restarts after each redirect.
  • Dockerfile is improved: image is updated to Ubuntu 14.04; logs are shown immediately; it becomes possible to pass additional options to Splash and customize proxy/js/filter profiles; adblock filters are supported in Docker; versions of Python dependencies are pinned; Splash is started directly (without supervisord).
  • Splash now tries to start Xvfb automatically - no need for xvfb-run. This feature requires xvfbwrapper Python package to be installed.
  • Debian package improvements: Xvfb viewport matches default Splash viewport, it is possible to change Splash option using SPLASH_OPTS environment variable.
  • Documentation is improved: finally, there are some install instructions.
  • Logging: verbosity level of several logging events are changed; data-uris are truncated in logs.
  • Various cleanups and testing improvements.
