101
1020.11
103
104- **All new documentation!** nose's documentation is now generated by
105  Sphinx. And thanks to Pam Zerbinos, it is much better organized and easier
106  to use and read.
107- Two new core commandline options can help with testing namespace
108  packages. :option:`--first-package-wins` is useful when you want to test one
109  part of a namespace package that uses another part; in previous versions of
110  nose, the other part of the namespace package would be evicted from
111  sys.modules when the 2nd loaded. :option:`--traverse-namespace` is useful if
112  you want nose to discover tests across entries in a package's
113  __path__. (This was formerly the default behavior).
114- To make it easier to use custom plugins without needing setuptools,
115  :func:`nose.core.main` and :func:`nose.core.run` now support an
116  :doc:`addplugins <doc_tests/test_addplugins/test_addplugins>` keyword
117  argument that takes a list of additional plugins to make available. **Note**
118  that adding a plugin to this list **does not** activate or enable the
119  plugin, only makes it available to be enabled via command-line or
120  config file settings.
121- Thanks to Kevin Mitchell, nose is now more compatible with
122  IronPython. IronPython is still not fully supported, but it should work. If
123  you'd like to improve nose's support for IronPython further, please join the
124  nose developer's list and volunteer to become the IronPython maintainer for
125  nose!
126- Added multiprocess plugin that allows tests to be run in parallel
127  across multiple processes.
128- Added logcapture plugin that captures logging messages and prints them with
129  failing tests. Thanks to Max Ischenko for the implementation.
130- Added optional HTML coverage reports to coverage plugin. Thanks to Augie
131  Fackler for the patch.
132- Added plugin that enables collection of tests in all modules. Thanks to
133  Peter Fein for the patch (#137).
134- Added --failed option to testid plugin. When this option is in effect, if
135  any tests failed in the previous test run (so long as testid was active for
136  that test run) only the failed tests will run.
137- Made it possible to 'yield test' in addition to 'yield test,' from test
138  generators. Thanks to Chad Whitacre for the patch (#230).
139- Fixed bug that caused traceback inspector to fail when source code file
140  could not be found. Thanks to Philip Jenvey for the bug report and patch
141  (#236).
142- Fixed some issues limiting compatibility with IronPython. Thanks to Kevin
143  Mitchell for the patch.
144- Added support for module and test case fixtures in doctest files (#60).
145- Added --traverse-namespace commandline option that restores old default
146  behavior of following all package __path__ entries when loading tests from
147  packages. Thanks to Philip Jenvey for the patch (#167).
148- Added --first-package-wins commandline option to better support testing
149  parts of namespace packages. Thanks to Jason Coombs for the bug report
150  (#197).
151- Added versioned nosetests scripts (#123).
152- Fixed bug that would cause context teardown to fail to run in some
153  cases. Thanks to John Shaw for the bug report and patch (#234).
154- Enabled doctest plugin to use variable other than "_" as the default result
155  variable. Thanks to Matt Good for the patch (#163).
156- Fixed bug that would cause unicode output to crash output capture. Thanks to
157  schickb for the bug report (#227).
158- Added setUp and tearDown as valid names for module-level fixtures. Thanks to
159  AgilityNerd for the patch (#211).
160- Fixed bug in list of valid names for package-level fixtures. Thanks to
161  Philip Jenvey for the patch (#237).
162- Updated man page generation using hacked up manpage writer from
163  docutils sandbox. Thanks grubert@users.sourceforge.net for the
164  original module.

173  if run with options. Thanks to Philip Jenvey for the bug report (#191).
174- Raised score of coverage plugin to 200, so that it will execute before
175  default-score plugins, and so be able to catch more import-time code. Thanks
176  to Ned Batchelder for the bug report and patch (#190).
177
1780.10.2
179
180- nose now runs under jython (jython svn trunk only at this time). Thanks to

183  caused plugin exceptions to be swallowed (#152, #155). Thanks to John J
184  Lee for the bug report and patch.

221- Fixed bug in result proxy that caused tests to fail if they accessed
222  certain result attibutes directly (#114). Thanks to Neilen Marais
223  for the bug report.
224- Fixed bug in capture plugin that caused other error formatters
225  changes to be lost if no output was captured (#124). Thanks to

332- Rewrote test runner and result classes to reduce duplication of effort.
333- Revised configuration system to be less convoluted.
334- Added nose.case.TestCase as universal wrapper for all

337  of different plugin loading schemes. The default manager loads
338  builtin plugins, 0.10 plugins under the setuptools entrypoint
339  nose.plugins.0-10 and provides limited support for legacy plugins
340  loaded under the entrypoint nose.plugins.
341- Added plugin hooks in all phases of discovery, running and description.
342- Converted several formely core features to plugins: output capture,
343  assert introspection, pdb, and skipped and deprecated test support.

350  supported python versions.
351- Added score property to plugins to allow plugins to execute in a
352  defined order (higher score execute first).
353- Expanded nose's own test suite to include a variety of functional tests.
354- Fixed many bugs.
355
3560.9.3
357
358- Added support for user configuration files. Thanks to Antoine Pitrou for the
359  patch.

371  setuptools. Thanks to Allen Bierbaum for the suggestion.
372- Fixed a bug in the doctests plugin that caused an error when multiple
373  exclude arguments were specified. Thanks to mbeachy for the bug report and
374  patch.
375
3760.9.2
377
378- Added nosetests setuptools command. Now you can run python setup.py
379  nosetests and have access to all nose features and plugins. Thanks to James
380  Casbon for the patch.
381- Added make_decorator function to nose.tools. Used to construct decorator
382  functions that are well-behaved and preserve as much of the original
383  function's metadata as possible. Thanks to Antoine Pitrou for the patch.
384- Added nose.twistedtools, contributed by Antoine Pitrou. This module adds
385  @deferred decorator that makes it simple to write deferred tests, with or
386  without timeouts.
387- Added monkeypatch to doctests that keeps doctest from stepping on coverage
388  when the two plugins are used together. Thanks to David Avraamides for the
389  bug report.
390- Added isolation plugin. Use this plugin to automatically restore sys.modules
391  after each test module or package. Thanks to Michal Kwiatkowski for the
392  feature request.
393- Fixed bug where -vvvv turned off verbose logging instead of making it even
394  more verbose. Thanks to Ian Bicking for the bug report.
395- Fixed bug where assert inspection would fail when the trailing """ of a
396  docstring was one of the inspected lines. Thanks to cito at online dot de
397  for the bug report.
398- Updated attrib plugin to allow selection of test methods by attributes of
399  the test case class. Thanks to Jason Hildebrand for the patch.
400- Improved compatibility with python 2.2. Thanks to Chad Whitacre for the
401  patch.
402- Fixed bug in handling of options from setup.cfg. Thanks to Kumar McMillan for
403  the patch.

405  funciton would result in an AttributeError. Thanks to Antoine Pitrou for the
406  bug report.
407- Updated coverage plugin to ignore lines tagged with #pragma: no cover,
408  matching the behavior of coverage.py on the command line. Thanks to Bill
409  Zingler for the bug report.
410- Added a man page for nosetests. Thanks to Gustavo Noronha Silva for the
411  request and providing an example.
412
4130.9.1
414
415- New function nose.runmodule() finds and runs tests only in a
416  single module, which defaults to __main__ (like unittest.main() or
417  doctest.runmodule()). Thanks Greg Wilson for the suggestion.
418- Multiple -w (--where) arguments can now be used in one command line,
419  to find and run tests in multiple locations. Thanks Titus Brown for
420  the suggestion.
421- Multiple --include and --exclude arguments are now accepted in one command
422  line. Thanks Michal Kwiatkowski for the feature request.
423- Coverage will now include modules not imported by any test when
424  using the new --cover-inclusive switch. Thanks James Casbon for the
425  patch.
426- module:TestClass test selections now properly select all tests in the test
427  class.
428- startTest and stopTest are now called in plugins at the beginning and end of
429  test suites, including test modules, as well as individual tests. Thanks
430  Michal Kwiatkowski for the suggestion.
431- Fix bug in test selection when run as ``python setup.py test``: 'test' was
432  passing through and being used as the test name selection. Thanks Kumar
433  McMillan for the bug report.
434- Fix bug in handling of -x/--stop option where the test run would stop on
435  skipped or deprecated tests. Thanks Kumar McMillan for the bug report.
436- Fix bug in loading tests from projects with layouts that place modules in
437  /lib or /src dirs and tests in a parallel /tests dir.
438- Fix bug in python version detection. Thanks Kevin Dangoor for the bug report
439  and fix.
440- Fix log message in selector that could raise IndexError. Thanks Kumar
441  McMillan for the bug report and patch.

445  report a better error message when a fixture is not callable. Thanks Ian
446  Bicking for the bug report.
447
4480.9.0
449
450- More unit tests and better test coverage. Numerous bugfixes deriving from
451  same.
452- Make --exe option do what it says, and turn it on by default on
453  Windows. Add --noexe option so windows users can turn if off.Thanks
454  richard at artsalliancemedia dot com for the bug reports.
455- Handle a working directory that happens to be in the middle of a package
456  more gracefully. Thanks Max Ischenko for the bug report and test case.
457- Fix bugs in test name comparison when a test module is specified whose name
458  overlaps that of a non-test module. Thanks Max Ischenko for the bug report
459  and test case.
460- Fix warning spam when a non-existent test file is requested on the command
461  line. Thanks Max Ischenko for the bug report.
462
4630.9.0b2
464
465- Allow --debug to set any logger to DEBUG. Thanks to casbon at gmail dot com
466  for the patch.
467- Fix doctest help, which was missing notes about the environment variables
468  that it accepts. Thanks to Kumar McMillan for the patch.
469- Restore sys.stdout after run() in nose.core. Thanks to Titus Brown for the
470  bug report.
471- Correct handling of trailing comma in attrib plugin args. Thanks Titus Brown
472  for the patch.
473
4740.9.0b1
475
476- Fix bug in handling of OR conditions in attrib plugin. Thanks to Titus
477  Brown for the bug report.
478- Fix bug in nose.importer that would cause an attribute error when a local
479  module shadowed a builtin, or other object in sys.modules, without a
480  __file__ attribute. Thanks to casbon at gmail dot com for the bug report.
481- Fix bug in nose.tools decorators that would cause decorated tests to appear
482  with incorrect names in result output.
483
4840.9.0a2
485
486- In TestLoader, use inspect's isfunction() and ismethod() to filter functions
487  and methods, instead of callable(). Thanks to Kumar McMillan for reporting
488  the bug.
489- Fix doctest plugin: return an empty iterable when no tests are found in a
490  directory instead of None. Thanks to Kumar McMillan for the bug report and
491  patch.
492- Ignore executable python modules, unless run with --exe file. This is a
493  partial defense against nose causing trouble by loading python modules that
494  are not import-safe. The full defense: don't write modules that aren't
495  import safe!
496- Catch and warn about errors on plugin load instead of dying.
497- Renamed builtin profile module from nose.plugins.profile to
498  nose.plugins.prof to avoid shadowing stdlib profile.py module.
499
5000.9.0a1
501
502- Add support for plugins, with hooks for selecting, loading and reporting on
503  tests. Doctest and coverage are now plugins.
504- Add builtin plugins for profiling with hotshot, selecting tests by
505  attribute (contributed by Mika Eloranta), and warning of missed tests
506  specified on command line.
507- Change command line test selection syntax to match unittest. Thanks to Titus
508  Brown for the suggestion.
509- Option to drop into pdb on error or failure.
510- Option to stop running on first error or failure. Thanks to Kevin Dangoor
511  for the suggestion.
512- Support for doctests in files other than python modules (python 2.4 only)
513- Reimplement base test selection as single self-contained class.
514- Reimplement test loading as unittest-compatible TestLoader class.
515- Remove all monkeypatching.
516- Reimplement output capture and assert introspection support in
517  unittest-compatible Result class.
518- Better support for multiline constructions in assert introspection.
519- More context output with assert introspections.
520- Refactor setuptools test command support to use proxied result, which
521  enables output capture and assert introspection support without
522  monkeypatching. Thanks to Philip J. Eby for the suggestion and skeleton
523  implementation.
524- Add support for generators in test classes. Thanks to Jay Parlar for the
525  suggestion and patch.
526- Add nose.tools package with some helpful test-composition functions and
527  decorators, including @raises, contributed by Scot Doyle.
528- Reimplement nose.main (TestProgram) to have unittest-compatible signature.
529- All-new import path handling. You can even turn it off! (If you don't,
530  nose will ensure that all directories from which it imports anything are on
531  sys.path before the import.)
532- Logging package used for verbose logging.
533- Support for skipped and deprecated tests.
534- Configuration is no longer global.
535
5360.8.7
537
538- Add support for py.test-style test generators. Thanks to Jay Parlar for
539  the suggestion.
540- Fix bug in doctest discovery. Thanks to Richard Cooper for the bug report.
541- Fix bug in output capture being appended to later exceptions. Thanks to
542  Titus Brown for the patch that uncovered the bug.
543- Fix bug(?) in Exception patch that caused masked hasattr/__getattr__ loops
544  to either become actual infinite loops, or at least take so long to finally
545  error out that they might as well be infinite.
546- Add -m option to restrict test running to only tests in a particular package
547  or module. Like the -f option, -m does not restrict test *loading*, only
548  test *execution*.
549- When loading and running a test module, ensure that the module's path is in
550  sys.path for the duration of the run, not just while importing the module.
551- Add id() method to all callable test classes, for greater unittest
552  compatibility.
553
5540.8.6
555
556- Fix bug with coverage output when sys.modules contains entries without
557  __file__ attributes
558- Added -p (--cover-packages) switch that may be used to restrict coverage
559  report to modules in the indicated package(s)
560
5610.8.5
562
563- Output capture and verbose assertion errors now work when run like
564  'python setup.py test', as advertised.
565- Code coverage improvements: now coverage will be output for all modules
566  imported by any means that were not in sys.modules at the start of the test
567  run. By default, test modules will be excluded from the coverage report, but
568  you can include them with the -t (--cover-tests) option.
569
5700.8.4
571
572- Fix bugs in handling of setup/teardown fixtures that could cause TypeError
573  exceptions in fixtures to be silently ignored, or multiple fixtures of the
574  same type to run. Thanks to Titus Brown for the bug report.
575
5760.8.3
577
578- Add -V (--version) switch to nosetests
579- Fix bug where sys.path would not be set up correctly when running some
580  tests, producing spurious import errors (Thanks to Titus Brown and Mike
581  Thomson for the bug reports)
582- For test classses not derived from unittest.TestCase, output (module.Class)
583  "doc string" as test description, when method doc string is available
584  (Thanks to David Keeney for the suggestion, even if this isn't quite what he
585  meant)
586
5870.8.2
588
589- Revise import to bypass sys.path and manipulate sys.modules more
590  intelligently, ensuring that the test module we think we are loading is the
591  module we actually load, and that modules loaded by other imports are not
592  reloaded without cause
593- Allow test directories inside of packages. Formerly directories matching
594  testMatch but lacking an __init__.py would cause an ImportError when located
595  inside of packages
596- Fix bugs in different handling of -f switch in combination with -w and -o
597
5980.8.1
599
600- Fix bug in main() that resulted in incorrect exit status for nosetests
601  script when tests fail
602- Add missing test files to MANIFEST.in
603- Miscellaneous pylint cleanups
604
6050.8
606
607- Add doctest support
608- Add optional code coverage support, using Ned Batchelder's coverage.py;
609  activate with --coverage switch or NOSE_COVERAGE environment variable
610- More informative error message on import error
611- Fix bug where module setup could be called twice and teardown skipped
612  for certain setup method names.
613- main() returns success value, does not exit. run_exit() added to support
614  old behavior; nosetests script now calls nose.run_exit()
615
6160.7.5
617
618- Fix bus error on exit
619- Discover tests inside of non-TestCase classes that match testMatch
620- Reorganize selftest: now selftest tests the output of a full nose run
621- Add test_with_setup.py contributed by Kumar McMillan
622
6230.7.2
624
625- Refactor and correct bugs in discovery and test loading
626- Reorganize and expand documentation
627- Add -f (run this test file only) switch
628
6290.7.1
630
631- Bugfix release: test files in root of working directory were not being
632  stripped of file extension before import.
633
6340.7
635
636- Change license to LGPL
637- Major rework of output capture and assert introspection
638- Improve test discovery: now finds tests in packages
639- Replace -n switch ('no cwd') with -w switch ('look here')
640
6410.6
642
643- New nosetests script
644- Allow specification of names on command line that are loadable but not
645  directly loadable as modules (eg nosetests -o path/to/tests.py)
646- Add optional py.test-like assert introspection. Thanks to Kevin Dangoor
647  for the suggestion.
648- Improvements to selftest
649
6500.5.1
651
652- Increased compatibility with python 2.3 (and maybe earlier)
653- Increased compatibility with tests written for py.test: now calls
654  module.setup_module(module) if module.setup_module() fails
655
