I'm pleased to announce the release of version 0.4.0 of unittest2.
* unittest2 on PyPI: http://pypi.python.org/pypi/unittest2
* Article introducing unittest2:
* Development docs for unittest (new features documented)
* Mercurial Development Repository: http://hg.python.org/unittest2
unittest2 is an enhanced version of unittest including a standard test
runner (automatic test discovery), class and module level fixtures
(``setUpClass`` / ``setUpModule`` etc), many powerful new assert
methods, better resource management with ``addCleanups`` and a host of
other new features. These new features are *all* going into the Python
version of unittest in Python 2.7 and Python 3.2. The point of unittest2
is that it works with Python 2.4 - 2.6; you can use it now.
The latest release is 0.4.0, which roughly equates to the feature set
that will be in unittest in Python 2.7 beta 1 which is due out any
minute now. The last public release of unittest2 I announced was version
0.2.0 and there have been several new and important features since then.
For full details of all the new features, see my blog entry:
