The pytest team is proud to announce the 8.0.0rc2 prerelease!

This is a prerelease, not intended for production use, but to test the upcoming features and improvements in order to catch any major problems before the final version is released to the major public.

We appreciate your help testing this out before the final release, making sure to report any regressions to our issue tracker:

When doing so, please include the string [prerelease] in the title.

You can upgrade from PyPI via:

pip install pytest==8.0.0rc2

Users are encouraged to take a look at the CHANGELOG carefully:

Thanks to all the contributors to this release:

  • Ben Brown

  • Bruno Oliveira

  • Ran Benita

Happy testing, The pytest Development Team
