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 ( 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.
