I'm happy to announce pytest 2.8.5 has been released.

This release is supposed to be drop-in compatible to 2.8.4

pytest is a mature Python testing tool with more than a 1100 tests
against itself, passing on many different interpreters and platforms.

See below for the changes and see docs at:


As usual, you can upgrade from pypi via::

    pip install -U pytest

Thanks to all who contributed to this release, among them:

  Alex Gaynor
  Bruno Oliveira
  Ronny Pfannschmidt

Happy testing,
The py.test Development Team
