1.7.2 (2013-03-16)

  • Fixed release issues.
  • Updated copyright and license to reflect recent Zope Foundation release of claim on the project.

1.7.0 (2013-02-13)

  • Added support for docutils-style code blocks and options there-of.

1.6.1 (2013-01-24)

  • Fixed a bug that made doctests fail if sys.argv contained the string “-v”.

1.6.0 (2012-04-16)

  • Ported to Python 3, still works in 2.6 and up.

1.5.0 (2011-03-08)

  • Removed the dependency on zope.testrunner
  • Added the ability to run the tests using “ test”.

1.4.1 (2011-01-25)

  • Fixed a bug that caused extra example evaluation if multiple doctest manuels were used at once (e.g. to execute Python and shell code in the same document).

1.4.0 (2011-01-11)

  • Added a parser keyword argument to manuel.doctest.Manuel to allow a custom doctest parser to be passed in. This allows easily adding support for other languages or other (but similar) example syntaxes.

1.3.0 (2010-09-02)

  • Respect test runner reporting switches (e.g., zope.testrunner’s –ndiff switch)
  • Fixed a bug that caused post-mortem debugging to not work most of the time.
  • Made return a sensible textual value at all times. This keeps Twisted’s trial testrunner happy.

1.2.0 (2010-06-10)

  • Conform to repository policy.
  • Switch to using zope.testrunner instead of zope.testing due to API changes. zope.testing is now only required for testing.

1.1.1 (2010-05-20)

1.1.0 (2010-05-18)

  • fix a SyntaxError when running the tests under Python 2.5
  • improved error message for improperly indented capture directive
  • Manuel no longer uses the now depricated zope.testing.doctest (requires zope.testing 3.9.1 or newer)

1.0.5 (2010-01-29)

  • fix a bug that caused Manuel to choke on empty documents (patch submitted by Bjorn Tillenius)
  • add a pointer to Manuel’s Subversion repo on the PyPI page
  • add an optional parameter that allows a custom TestCase class to be passed to TestSuite() (patch submitted by Bjorn Tillenius)

1.0.4 (2010-01-06)

  • use newer setuptools (one compatible with Subversion 1.6) so built distributions include all files

1.0.3 (2010-01-06)

  • fix a small doc thinko
  • fix the code-block handler to allow :linenos:
  • open files in universal newlines mode

1.0.2 (2009-12-07)

  • fix a bug that caused instances of zope.testing.doctest.Example (and instances of subclasses of the same) to be silently ignored.

1.0.1 (2009-08-31)

  • fix line number reporting for test failures

1.0.0 (2009-08-09)

  • Python 2.4 compatability fix

1.0.0b2 (2009-07-10)

  • add the ability to identify and run subsets of documents (using the -t switch of zope.testing’s testrunner for example)

1.0.0b1 (2009-06-24)

  • major docs improvements
  • added several new plug-ins

1.0.0a8 (2009-05-01)

  • add a larger example of using Manuel (table-example.txt)
  • make the test suite factory function try harder to find the calling module
  • fix a bug in the order regions are evaluated
  • add a Manuel object that can evaluate Python code in “.. code-block:: python” regions of a reST document

1.0.0a4 (2009-05-01)

  • make the global state (“globs”) shared between all evaluators, not just doctest

1.0.0a3 (2009-05-01)

  • make zope.testing’s testrunner recognized the enhanced, doctest-style errors generated by Manuel
  • rework the evaluaters to work region-by-region instead of on the entire document
  • switch to using regular Python classes for Manuel objects instead of previous prototype-y style

1.0.0a2 (2008-10-17)

  • first release
