Changes between 1.X and 1.1.1
- moved dist/looponfailing from py.test core into a new
separately released pytest-xdist plugin.
- new junitxml plugin: --junitxml=path will generate a junit style xml file
which is processable e.g. by the Hudson CI system.
- new option: --genscript=path will generate a standalone py.test script
which will not need any libraries installed. thanks to Ralf Schmitt.
- new option: --ignore will prevent specified path from collection.
Can be specified multiple times.
- new option: --confcutdir=dir will make py.test only consider conftest
files that are relative to the specified dir.
- new funcarg: "pytestconfig" is the pytest config object for access
to command line args and can now be easily used in a test.
- install 'py.test' and `py.which` with a ``-$VERSION`` suffix to
disambiguate between Python3, python2.X, Jython and PyPy installed versions.
- new "pytestconfig" funcarg allows access to test config object
- new "pytest_report_header" hook can return additional lines
to be displayed at the header of a test run.
- (experimental) allow "py.test path::name1::name2::..." for pointing
to a test within a test collection directly. This might eventually
evolve as a full substitute to "-k" specifications.
- streamlined plugin loading: order is now as documented in
customize.html: setuptools, ENV, commandline, conftest.
also setuptools entry point names are turned to canonical namees ("pytest_*")
- automatically skip tests that need 'capfd' but have no os.dup
- allow pytest_generate_tests to be defined in classes as well
- deprecate usage of 'disabled' attribute in favour of pytestmark
- deprecate definition of Directory, Module, Class and Function nodes
in conftest.py files. Use pytest collect hooks instead.
- collection/item node specific runtest/collect hooks are only called exactly
on matching conftest.py files, i.e. ones which are exactly below
the filesystem path of an item
- change: the first pytest_collect_directory hook to return something
will now prevent further hooks to be called.
- change: figleaf plugin now requires --figleaf to run. Also
change its long command line options to be a bit shorter (see py.test -h).
- change: pytest doctest plugin is now enabled by default and has a
new option --doctest-glob to set a pattern for file matches.
- change: remove internal py._* helper vars, only keep py._pydir
- robustify capturing to survive if custom pytest_runtest_setup
code failed and prevented the capturing setup code from running.
- make py.test.* helpers provided by default plugins visible early -
works transparently both for pydoc and for interactive sessions
which will regularly see e.g. py.test.mark and py.test.importorskip.
- simplify internal plugin manager machinery
- simplify internal collection tree by introducing a RootCollector node
- fix assert reinterpreation that sees a call containing "keyword=..."
- fix issue66: invoke pytest_sessionstart and pytest_sessionfinish
hooks on slaves during dist-testing, report module/session teardown
- fix issue65: properly handle dist-testing if no
execnet/py lib installed remotely.
- skip some install-tests if no execnet is available
- fix docs, fix internal bin/ script generation
Changes between 1.1.1 and 1.1.0
- introduce automatic plugin registration via 'pytest11'
entrypoints via setuptools' pkg_resources.iter_entry_points
- fix py.test dist-testing to work with execnet >= 1.0.0b4
- re-introduce py.test.cmdline.main() for better backward compatibility
- svn paths: fix a bug with path.check(versioned=True) for svn paths,
allow '%' in svn paths, make svnwc.update() default to interactive mode
like in 1.0.x and add svnwc.update(interactive=False) to inhibit interaction.
- refine distributed tarball to contain test and no pyc files
- try harder to have deprecation warnings for py.compat.* accesses
report a correct location
Changes between 1.1.0 and 1.0.2
* adjust and improve docs
* remove py.rest tool and internal namespace - it was
never really advertised and can still be used with
the old release if needed. If there is interest
it could be revived into its own tool i guess.
* fix issue48 and issue59: raise an Error if the module
from an imported test file does not seem to come from
the filepath - avoids "same-name" confusion that has
been reported repeatedly
* merged Ronny's nose-compatibility hacks: now
nose-style setup_module() and setup() functions are

for test functions with multiple arguments.
* merge Jarko's fixes, issue #45 and #46
* add the ability to specify a path for py.lookup to search in
* fix a funcarg cached_setup bug probably only occuring
in distributed testing and "module" scope with teardown.
* many fixes and changes for making the code base python3 compatible,
many thanks to Benjamin Peterson for helping with this.
* consolidate builtins implementation to be compatible with >=2.3,
add helpers to ease keeping 2 and 3k compatible code
* deprecate py.compat.doctest|subprocess|textwrap|optparse
* deprecate py.magic.autopath, remove py/magic directory
* move pytest assertion handling to py/code and a pytest_assertion
plugin, add "--no-assert" option, deprecate py.magic namespaces
in favour of (less) py.code ones.
* consolidate and cleanup py/code classes and files
* cleanup py/misc, move tests to bin-for-dist
* introduce delattr/delitem/delenv methods to py.test's monkeypatch funcarg
* consolidate py.log implementation, remove old approach.
* introduce py.io.TextIO and py.io.BytesIO for distinguishing between
text/unicode and byte-streams (uses underlying standard lib io.*
* make py.unittest_convert helper script available which converts "unittest.py"
style files into the simpler assert/direct-test-classes py.test/nosetests
style. The script was written by Laura Creighton.
* simplified internal localpath implementation
Changes between 1.0.1 and 1.0.2
* fixing packaging issues, triggered by fedora redhat packaging,
also added doc, examples and contrib dirs to the tarball.
* added a documentation link to the new django plugin.
Changes between 1.0.0 and 1.0.1
* added a 'pytest_nose' plugin which handles nose.SkipTest,
nose-style function/method/generator setup/teardown and
tries to report functions correctly.
* capturing of unicode writes or encoded strings to sys.stdout/err
work better, also terminalwriting was adapted and somewhat
unified between windows and linux.
* improved documentation layout and content a lot
* added a "--help-config" option to show conftest.py / ENV-var names for
all longopt cmdline options, and some special conftest.py variables.
renamed 'conf_capture' conftest setting to 'option_capture' accordingly.
* fix issue #27: better reporting on non-collectable items given on commandline
(e.g. pyc files)
* fix issue #33: added --version flag (thanks Benjamin Peterson)
* fix issue #32: adding support for "incomplete" paths to wcpath.status()

* setup/teardown or collection problems now show as ERRORs
or with big "E"'s in the progress lines. they are reported
and counted separately.
* dist-testing: properly handle test items that get locally
collected but cannot be collected on the remote side - often
due to platform/dependency reasons
* simplified py.test.mark API - see keyword plugin documentation
* integrate better with logging: capturing now by default captures
test functions and their immediate setup/teardown in a single stream
* capsys and capfd funcargs now have a readouterr() and a close() method
(underlyingly py.io.StdCapture/FD objects are used which grew a
readouterr() method as well to return snapshots of captured out/err)
* make assert-reinterpretation work better with comparisons not
returning bools (reported with numpy from thanks maciej fijalkowski)
* reworked per-test output capturing into the pytest_iocapture.py plugin
and thus removed capturing code from config object
* item.repr_failure(excinfo) instead of item.repr_failure(excinfo, outerr)
Changes between 1.0.0b7 and 1.0.0b8
* pytest_unittest-plugin is now enabled by default
* introduced pytest_keyboardinterrupt hook and
refined pytest_sessionfinish hooked, added tests.

* tweaked doctest output for docstrings in py modules,
Changes between 1.0.0b3 and 1.0.0b7

two ways to decorate for xfail
* re-added py.test.mark decorator for setting keywords on functions
(it was actually documented so removing it was not nice)

* completely revised internal py.test architecture
* new py.process.ForkedFunc object allowing to
fork execution of a function to a sub process
and getting a result back.
XXX lots of things missing here XXX
Changes between 0.9.1 and 0.9.2
* refined installation and metadata, created new setup.py,
now based on setuptools/ez_setup (thanks to Ralf Schmitt
for his support).
* improved the way of making py.* scripts available in
windows environments, they are now added to the
