Espresso 2.0 is here!

A release is never too late, nor is it too early. It arrives precisely when it’s meant to.” That being said, we would like to apologize for such a long wait. Part of the delay was caused by work that ensures that this does not happen again.

Espresso 2.0 is packed with new features[0], but perhaps the most important change is that Espresso is now part of the Android Support Library and available in the Android Open Source Project (AOSP) soon. This will make it easier for you to contribute to future releases.

With this release, we would also like to introduce the new AndroidJUnitRunner[1], which contains all the functionality of GoogleInstrumentationTestRunner and adds extra features[2], including Junit4 support.

Although this is an API-breaking release (hence the major version bump), we do not expect the majority of projects to be affected by anything other than the package name change.

We have added a new set of individual sample projects, available on GitHub[3], to make it easier for you to learn about the new features and get started with Espresso.

Documentation[4,5] and Javadocs[6,7,8] are still hosted on android-test-kit, but will move to in early 2015.

We hope that you enjoy the new Espresso experience and look forward to your feedback and contributions.

Happy holidays and happy testing!

According to the HTTP Archive, HTTPS adoption for the top 300K sites has grown by 300%+ over the last two years [1], from 4% to 13%. However, it's important to keep in mind that HTTP Archive is counting unique origins, which does not account for the popularity of any particular site - e.g. a single origin, like or may be responsible for many more user navigations as compared to a site that you may visit infrequently. 

Looking at the number of actual navigations shows that, in Chrome, the number of HTTPS navigations [2] has grown from ~27% to ~58% within the same period of last two years - i.e. more than half of user navigations are over HTTPS!

The goal is, of course, to get to 100% - aka, HTTPS everywhere - and we still have a lot of work to do as an industry to make this a reality, but we’re making good progress! 

[1] - 2012-2014 stats.

[2] HTTPS navigation: any navigation (link clicks, omnibox navigations, back/forward, fragment changes, pushState) where the destination scheme of the main frame is “https”.
