72.0 Once upon a time in Holywood

The Avocado team is proud to present another release: Avocado 70.0, AKA “Once upon a time in Holywood”, is now available!

Release documentation: Avocado 72.0

Users/Test Writers

  • The new vmimage command allows a user to list the virtual machine images downloaded by means of avocado.utils.vmimage or download new images via the avocado vmimage get command.

  • The tags feature (see Categorizing tests) now supports an extended character set, adding . and - to the allowed characters. A tag such as :avocado: tags=machine:s390-ccw-virtio is now valid.

  • The still experimental “N(ext) Runner”, introduced on version 71.0, can now run most Avocado Instrumented tests, and possibly any test who implements a matching avocado-runner-$(TEST_TYPE) script that conforms to the expected interface.
