Hi Sauce user,

Due to very low usage Sauce Labs will be ending support for Windows XP and Mac OS 10.8. With the elimination of these platforms, users will no longer be able to run automated or manual tests on the following browsers from July 30th -

  • Internet Explorer 6, Internet Explorer 7 (Including all minor versions)

  • Internet Explorer 8.0.6001

  • Safari 5 and 6

IE 8.0.7601 will continue to be supported through the Windows 7 platform.

Ending support for old platforms allows us to accelerate the introduction of new platforms and features.

Action items :

If you are running tests on any of these platforms, please review your tests to ensure they are moved to newer platforms before July 30th. Please check out Platform configurator for the desired capabilities and specify a platform version when running tests.

Here are a few examples -

DesiredCapabilities caps = DesiredCapabilities.edge();
caps.setCapability("platform", "Windows 10");
caps.setCapability("version", "15.15063");

DesiredCapabilities caps = DesiredCapabilities.safari();
caps.setCapability("platform", "macOS 10.12");
caps.setCapability("version", "10.0");

Thanks and happy testing!

 The Sauce Labs Team.
