Espresso for Android 1.1 released!

Google Espresso Team just announced about the second 1.1 release of their small in size but huge in potential baby. The new features are:
  1. so expected swiping ViewActions - swipeRight() and swipeLeft()
  2. maybe even more desired multi-window support
  3. new type text ViewAction - typeTextIntoFocusedView(String stringToBeTyped)
  4. bugfixes and improvements
The release notes available at android-test-kit page - release notes Espresso 1.1.

I'd also like to mention useful features that are not present at release notes page:
  1. added possibility to create custom Root matchers
  2. updated scrollTo() ViewAction for horizontal scroll view support
  3. added NoActivityResumedException which indicates that there are no activities in stage RESUMED
  4. added DrawerActions and DrawerMatchers
  5. and last but not least - new stylish logo
Stay tuned!
