Changes between 2.3.1 and 2.3.2

  • fix issue208 and fix issue29 use new py version to avoid long pauses when printing tracebacks in long modules
  • fix issue205 - conftests in subdirs customizing pytest_pycollect_makemodule and pytest_pycollect_makeitem now work properly
  • fix teardown-ordering for parametrized setups
  • fix issue127 - better documentation for pytest_addoption and related objects.
  • fix unittest behaviour: TestCase.runtest only called if there are test methods defined
  • improve trial support: don’t collect its empty unittest.TestCase.runTest() method
  • “python setup.py test” now works with pytest itself
  • fix/improve internal/packaging related bits:

    • issue206 - fix test_assertrewrite.py to work when a global PYTHONDONTWRITEBYTECODE=1 is present
    • add tox.ini to pytest distribution so that ignore-dirs and others config bits are properly distributed for maintainers who run pytest-own tests
