Version 1.3 of the PyUnit unit testing framework is out, for those who are

Quick summary for those not familiar with PyUnit:-

 - PyUnit is a Python port of Java's popular JUnit testing framework
 - It provides a framework for easily writing unit and functional tests
   for your Python code, for aggregating the tests to run en-masse, and
   for running tests in text or GUI mode
 - PyUnit has been around since 1999 and is used in many projects,
   including Zope.

Here's what's new in this release:-

 - Clearer and more verbose text output format
 - JPython and Python 2 compatibility
 - New FunctionTestCase class provides support for wrapping legacy test
   functions into PyUnit test case instances
 - Support for short descriptions of tests, taken from __doc__ strings
   by default
 - Updated and expanded documentation
 - Convenient new unittest.main() function for use by all test modules
 - Tests run in text mode can now be interrupted using ctrl-c
