Hi All,

I'm pleased to announce the release of testfixtures 4.7.0. Since 4.5.1, 
the following have been added:

- Add the ability to pass raises=False to compare() to just get
   the resulting message back rather than having an exception raised.

- Fix a bug that mean symlinked directories would never show up when
   using TempDirectory.compare() and friends.

- Add the `followlinks` parameter to TempDirectory.compare() to
   indicate that symlinked or hard linked directories should be recursed
   into when using `recursive=True`.

The package is on PyPI and a full list of all the links to docs, issue 
trackers and the like can be found here:
