pytest-2.3.1: fix regression with factory functions¶
pytest-2.3.1 is a quick follow-up release:
fix issue202 - regression with fixture functions/funcarg factories: using “self” is now safe again and works as in 2.2.4. Thanks to Eduard Schettino for the quick bug report.
disable pexpect pytest self tests on Freebsd - thanks Koob for the quick reporting
fix/improve interactive docs with –markers
for general information. To install or upgrade pytest:
pip install -U pytest # or easy_install -U pytest
best, holger krekel
Changes between 2.3.0 and 2.3.1¶
fix issue202 - fix regression: using “self” from fixture functions now works as expected (it’s the same “self” instance that a test method which uses the fixture sees)
skip pexpect using tests (test_pdb.py mostly) on freebsd* systems due to pexpect not supporting it properly (hanging)
link to web pages from –markers output which provides help for pytest.mark.* usage.
