[TIP] In 2013, I need to use nose1 or nose2 ? What is the future of nose ?

The best answer is: whatever works better for you.

That said, nose (nose1) is purely in maintenance mode. I'm happy to accept
patches, and I put together a release whenever I have time and can get
help, but I'm not actively developing it right now. But it's also much more
mature and widely used than nose2.

nose2 is a much smaller, cleaner codebase, and is where I put new features
whenever I want a new test runner feature. (For instance, zope-style layers
are only in nose2). I myself use nose2 much more than nose1 now. nose2 also
has a more liberal license, if that matters to you.

I have extremely limited time for personal projects these days -- for
actual coding, about 30 minutes/week at best. So progress on nose1 releases
and nose2 features is always very slow.

I hope that helps,
