py.test 2.0.3: bug fixes and speed ups¶
Welcome to pytest-2.0.3, a maintenance and bug fix release of pytest, a mature testing tool for Python, supporting CPython 2.4-3.2, Jython and latest PyPy interpreters. See the extensive docs with tested examples here:
If you want to install or upgrade pytest, just type one of:
pip install -U pytest # or easy_install -U pytest
There also is a bugfix release 1.6 of pytest-xdist, the plugin that enables seamless distributed and “looponfail” testing for Python.
