pytest-2.4.1: fixing three regressions compared to 2.3.5

pytest-2.4.1 is a quick follow up release to fix three regressions compared to 2.3.5 before they hit more people:

  • When using parser.addoption() unicode arguments to the “type” keyword should also be converted to the respective types. thanks Floris Bruynooghe, @dnozay. (fixes issue360 and issue362)

  • fix dotted filename completion when using argcomplete thanks Anthon van der Neuth. (fixes issue361)

  • fix regression when a 1-tuple (“arg”,) is used for specifying parametrization (the values of the parametrization were passed nested in a tuple). Thanks Donald Stufft.

  • also merge doc typo fixes, thanks Andy Dirnberger

as usual, docs at and upgrades via:

pip install -U pytest

have fun, holger krekel
