We are pleased to announce the availability of pytest-django 2.0.0. This release is rewritten to make use of fixture API introduced in py.test 2.3, which fixes a lot of bugs and edge cases in previous releases. Get it directly from PyPI or install with pip:

pip install -U pytest-django

pytest is an innovative testing tool for Python programs. pytest-django is a plugin that provides Django integration and helpers. Improvements over Django's standard test runner includes test database re-use, easier selection of running a subset of test cases. Existing test suites based on Django's own test runner should be compatible out of the box.
