also released pytest-xdist-1.11 with some little improvements and speedups regarding overheads for distributing tests (maybe 10%, not too much).
Install it with:
pip install -U pytest-xdist
and checkout the pypi page:
add glob support for rsyncignores, add command line option to pass additional rsyncignores. Thanks Anatoly Bubenkov.
fix pytest issue382 - produce "pytest_runtest_logstart" event again in master. Thanks Aron Curzon.
fix pytest issue419 by sending/receiving indices into the test collection instead of node ids (which are not neccessarily unique for functions parametrized with duplicate values)
send multiple "to test" indices in one network message to a slave and improve heuristics for sending chunks where the chunksize depends on the number of remaining tests rather than fixed numbers. This reduces the number of master -> node messages (but not the reverse direction)
