hi, you are not doing anything wrong, except that there hasnt been any release of arquillian-performance that uses the latest version of arquillian-core.
to get it to work with the latest version of arquillian, download the source (https://github.com/arquillian/arquillian-extension-performance), build it and change the pom to use 1.0.0-SNAPSHOT of arquillian-performance.
Fair enough, although I guess I'll just wait for an updated Arquillian Performance.
Just pushed Arquillian Performance 1.0.0.CR1
A notable change from Alpha5, Performance is now split in API and Impl.
API for test compile and Impl for runtime.
