I blogged earlier about using Selenium for security testing. One of the shortcomings that I pointed out, was that session handling (i.e. cookie handling) was needed. I went ahead and created extensions for this. As of version 0.8.0, Selenium now supports this out of the box. This means that Selenium now is able to test scenarios such as logging in and logging out from web applications, in additional to other cookie-based functionality. Great!
