+py.test 2.1.2: bug fixes and fixes for jython
+pytest-2.1.2 is a minor backward compatible maintenance release of the
+popular py.test testing tool.  pytest is commonly used for unit,
+functional- and integration testing.  See extensive docs with examples
+Most bug fixes address remaining issues with the perfected assertions
+introduced in the 2.1 series - many thanks to the bug reporters and to Benjamin
+Peterson for helping to fix them.  pytest should also work better with
+Jython-2.5.1 (and Jython trunk).
+If you want to install or upgrade pytest, just type one of::
+    pip install -U pytest # or
+    easy_install -U pytest
