Ah, spring, when a tester's fancy turns to new releases.

Today brings nose 0.9.3. nose 0.9.3 is mainly a bugfix release. The
major new feature is support for user configuration files: now you can
put your frequently used configuration options in .noserc or nose.cfg
files, rather than typing them over and over and over again. Many
thanks to Antoine Pitrou for that patch, and thanks to all of the
other users who reported bugs and submitted patches and suggestions.

Barring catastrophic bugs, this will be the last release of nose in
the 0.9 series. An alpha release of nose 0.10 should be forthcoming
within a few weeks. Details about the new features and architecture
changes in nose 0.10 may be found here:


As usual, the new release may be installed via easy_install, or downloaded from:
