Hi all,

just pushed pytest-2.6.4 to pypi, a small bug fix release.  pytest is a
popular and mature Python testing tool with more than a 1100 tests
against itself, passing on many different interpreters and platforms.
This release is drop-in compatible to 2.5.2 and 2.6.X.  See below for
the changes and see docs at:


Thanks to all who contributed, among them:

    Bruno Oliveira

- Improve assertion failure reporting on iterables, by using ndiff and pprint.

- removed outdated japanese docs from source tree.

- docs for "pytest_addhooks" hook.  Thanks Bruno Oliveira.

- updated plugin index docs.  Thanks Bruno Oliveira.

- fix issue557: with "-k" we only allow the old style "-" for negation
  at the beginning of strings and even that is deprecated.  Use "not" instead.
  This should allow to pick parametrized tests where "-" appeared in the parameter.

- fix issue604: Escape % character in the assertion message.

- fix issue620: add explanation in the --genscript target about what
  the binary blob means. Thanks Dinu Gherman.

- fix issue614: fixed pastebin support.
