Hi all,

There's a new version of the black-box test tool TextTest out.

There are various enhancements and bug fixes, notably
- GUI improvements with focus on usability
- enhancements to "known bugs" functionality
- Polling Sun Grid Engine to make the status of tests in it more visible
(when that plugin is being used)

and many bugfixes and other improvements. See the mailing list for more

Note this is the last release that will support Python 2.4 and 2.5: 3.20
will require Python 2.6 and probably GTK 2.18 as well.

TextTest is a tool for automatic text-based functional testing. This
means running a batch-mode executable in lots of different ways from
the command line, and using the text output produced as a means of
controlling the behavior of that application. As well as being usable
"standalone", it is an extendable framework for black-box testing
written in Python. It's also useful as a test management tool wrapping
some other test tool as a test runner.
