pytest / CHANGELOG

Changes between 1.0.0b3 and 1.0.0b6

* renamed py.test.xfail back to py.test.mark.xfail to avoid 
  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) 

* remove scope-argument from request.addfinalizer() because 
  request.cached_setup has the scope arg. TOOWTDI. 

* perform setup finalization before reporting failures

* apply modified patches from Andreas Kloeckner to allow 
  test functions to have no func_code (#22) and to make 
  "-k" and function keywords work  (#20) 

* apply patch from Daniel Peolzleithner (issue #23) 

* resolve issue #18, multiprocessing.Manager() and 
  redirection clash 

Changes between 1.0.0b1 and 1.0.0b3

* plugin classes are removed: one now defines 
  hooks directly in conftest.py or global pytest_*.py 

* added new pytest_namespace(config) hook that allows 
  to inject helpers directly to the py.test.* namespace. 

* documented and refined many hooks 

* added new style of generative tests via 
  pytest_generate_tests hook that integrates 
  well with function arguments. 

Changes between 0.9.2 and 1.0.0b1

* introduced new "funcarg" setup method, 
  see doc/test/funcarg.txt 

* introduced plugin architecuture and many 
  new py.test plugins, see 

* teardown_method is now guaranteed to get 
  called after a test method has run. 
* new method: py.test.importorskip(mod,minversion)
  will either import or call py.test.skip()

* 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 
  Scripts directory as ".cmd" files. 

* py.path.svnwc.status() now is more complete and 
  uses xml output from the 'svn' command if available
  (Guido Wesdorp)

* fix for py.path.svn* to work with svn 1.5
  (Chris Lamb)

* fix path.relto(otherpath) method on windows to 
  use normcase for checking if a path is relative.

* py.test's traceback is better parseable from editors 
  (follows the filenames:LINENO: MSG convention)
  (thanks to Osmo Salomaa)

* fix to javascript-generation, "py.test --runbrowser" 
  should work more reliably now

* removed previously accidentally added 
  py.test.broken and py.test.notimplemented helpers. 

* there now is a py.__version__ attribute
