This is a hotfix release to solve a regression in the builtin monkeypatch plugin that got introduced in 2.8.6.
pytest is a mature Python testing tool with more than 1100 tests against itself, passing on many different interpreters and platforms. This release is supposed to be drop-in compatible to 2.8.5.
See below for the changes and see docs at:
As usual, you can upgrade from pypi via:
