Hi there,

The Gatling team is very proud to announce the availability of Gatling 2.1.5.

This release includes new versions of:

  • core Gatling
  • Highcharts reports
  • maven plugin
  • sbt plugin

Amongst others, please note the following fixes:

  • race condition in AsyncHttpClient causing excessive “Remotely closed” exceptions
  • gatling-maven-plugin compatibility with maven 3.3
  • digest auth
  • SSLSessionContext not collected fast enough

See here for full release note.

We also released Gatling Jenkins Plugin 1.1.1 that fix compatibility with recent Jenkins versions.

Users are strongly advised to upgrade.


Stephane et al,

Thanks for all the creative effort you have put into this project, which is without doubt the most promising load-test tool in existence. Thanks also for the patience you have had for those like me who have had at various times asked the most stupidest of questions.

I wish you every success for future releases and I hope to see you soon training us at the BBC.

Many Thanks

Adrian Lewis

Thanks for your kind words, Adrian!


I am facing errors while building my Gatling project in Jenkins:
