Cypress - v9.7.0

Released 5/23/2022


  • The Electron version and shipped Chromium browser version has been updated.
    Addressed in #21418.


  • The Cypress.Cookies.preserveOnce() and Cypress.Cookies.defaults() Cypress
    APIs have been deprecated. In a future release, support for
    Cypress.Cookies.preserveOnce() and Cypress.Cookies.defaults() will be
    removed. Consider using the experimental
    cy.session() command instead to cache and restore
    cookies and other sessions details between tests. Fixed


  • Updated the cy.contains() command to correctly
    error and retry if the provided regex pattern begins with an equal sign and a
    match was not initially found. Previously the command would incorrectly fail
    with a syntax error. Fixed
  • Corrected the cy.session() command log grouping and validation verbiage.
    This change provides better insights to logs associated with the command.
    Fixed #21377.
  • Removed eventemitter2 third-party type definitions from cy and Cypress
    that were unintentionally exposed. Fixed
