67.0 A Beautiful Mind

The Avocado team is proud to present another release: Avocado version 67.0, AKA “A Beautiful Mind”, is now available!

Release documentation: Avocado 67.0

The major changes introduced on this version are listed below, roughly categorized into major topics and intended audience:

Users/Test Writers

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed the lack of initialization of the logging system that would, on some unittests, cause an infinity recursion.

Internal Changes

  • The template engine that powers the HTML report has been replaced, and now jinja2 is being used and pystache has been dropped. The reason is the lack of activity in the pystache project, and lack of Python 3.7 support.
  • A number of refactors and improvements on the selftests have increased the number of test to the 650 mark.
  • The mechanism used to list selftests to be run is now the same when running tests in serial or in parallel mode, and is exposed in the selftests/list script.
