ZenTest 3.4.1 Released

Published 2006-10-13 @ 19:04

ZenTest version 3.4.1 has been released!

ZenTest provides 4 different tools and 1 library: zentest, unit_diff, autotest, multiruby, and Test::Rails.

ZenTest scans your target and unit-test code and writes your missing code based on simple naming rules, enabling XP at a much quicker pace. ZenTest only works with Ruby and Test::Unit.

unit_diff is a command-line filter to diff expected results from actual results and allow you to quickly see exactly what is wrong.

autotest is a continous testing facility meant to be used during development. As soon as you save a file, autotest will run the corresponding dependent tests.

multiruby runs anything you want on multiple versions of ruby. Great for compatibility checking!

Test::Rails helps you build industrial-strength Rails code.

% sudo gem update zentest


3.4.1 / 2006-10-13

  • 3 minor enhancements:
    • FUNDAMENTALLY changed the way failures map back to tests. This requires users of autotest to ensure that their tests and impls map 1:1 at every scoping level. I’ll blog more details soon.
    • Hoe’d rakefile
    • Added support for render :collection to RenderTree.
  • 7 bug fixes:
    • Fixed autotest tests for custom ruby names.
    • Fixed some documentation errors in ControllerTestCase.
    • Fixed setup in FunctionalTestCase.
    • Allowed @assigns_ignored to contain either Symbols or Strings, bug 5233.
    • Using Object.path2class to look up classes in helper test cases, bug 5493.
    • Added assert_text_area, bug 5452.
    • Renamed assert_select to assert_select_tag. Stupid rails. We were here first.
