Hi all,

There's a new version of the black-box test tool TextTest out.

Various enhancements and bug fixes, notably
- Tests can be rerun from the dynamic GUI with different settings
- Config file settings can now be varied per test
- Can now set up a "known bug" that will trigger a rerun of the test
up to a certain number of times

Note this release requires at least Python 2.6 and PyGTK 2.16 now.

TextTest is a tool for automatic text-based functional testing. This
means running a batch-mode executable in lots of different ways from
the command line, and using the text output produced as a means of
controlling the behavior of that application. As well as being usable
"standalone", it is an extendable framework for black-box testing
written in Python. It's also useful as a test management tool wrapping
some other test tool as a test runner.
