Test::Harness 3.00

Journal written by AndyArmstrong (7200) and posted by brian_d_foy on 2007.11.06 14:48   Printer-friendly

We've just released Test::Harness 3.00. It's a complete rewrite of Test::Harness with a more modular architecture that should make it easier to write custom testing tools.

In no particular order here are some of the things that have changed:

  • Support for TAP version 13
  • Cleaner API
  • Closer integration with CPAN::Reporter
  • Parallel test runs
  • Improved output formatting
  • Machine readable YAML diagnostics
  • Better detection of TAP syntax errors

And in alphabetical order some of the people who made it happen:

  • Sebastien Aperghis-Tramoni
  • Leif Eriksen
  • Shlomi Fish
  • David Golden
  • Jim Keenan
  • Andy Lester
  • Michael Peters
  • Curtis Ovid Poe
  • Michael Schwern
  • Gabor Szabo
  • Eric Wilhelm


Development on Test::Harness continues. There are a number of proposals on the Test Anything Wiki and at least some of them will make it into future releases. If you'd like to follow progress more closely - or offer some help - you'll find the Test::Harness developers on the TAPX-DEV mailing list or on #toolchain on IRC.

  • Thanks for all the hard work on this. In the past few years Perl quality has skyrocketed and all the great testing modules have played a big role in this. Your work here will keep perl at the forefront of testing. Sincerely, John
