Good things have happened in the test world in the past couple of weeks.
Last week, Autrijus and I discussed porting Test::Builder to Perl 6 for Pugs. Schwern and I sketched out some refactorings of Test::Builder a couple of years ago and promptly didn't do it. I resurrected the idea (if not the notes, if that hard drive even exists anywhere accessible anymore) and came up with some ideas last night. Today, the idea came up again on the Perl QA mailing list for Perl 5 and it looks like we can go ahead with it.
Most of the ideas are merely internal cleanups, but they'll make it possible to do some cooler things that people have asked for in cleaner ways.
I've spent some of my off-hours documenting existing and inventing some new testing tricks. I'll explain more about this soon.
Finally, I'm fiddling with the OpenGL bindings to Parrot again. What? You didn't know they existed? Oh, they do. I'll show them off soon.
