rspec-2.6.0.rc2 is released!

| Comments

We’re releasing rspec-2.6.0.rc2 as a release candidate as there are some internal changes that we’d like to see put through their paces before doing a final release. Note that the changes I speak of are internal. There are no new deprecations in this release, nor any backward-incompatible changes.

There are, however, some new features that we’re really excited about. Please do check it out and please do report any issues to the appropriate github issue tracker:


full changelog

  • Enhancements

    • shared_context (Damian Nurzynski)
      • extend groups matching specific metadata with:
        • method definitions
        • subject declarations
        • let/let! declarations
        • etc (anything you can do in a group)
    • its([:key]) works for any subject with #[]. (Peter Jaros)
    • treat_symbols_as_metadata_keys_with_true_values (Myron Marston)
    • Print a deprecation warning when you configure RSpec after defining an example. All configuration should happen before any examples are defined. (Myron Marston)
    • Pass the exit status of a DRb run to the invoking process. This causes specs run via DRb to not just return true or false. (Ilkka Laukkanen)
    • Refactoring of ConfigurationOptions#parse_options (Rodrigo Rosenfeld Rosas)
    • Report excluded filters in runner output (tip from andyl)
  • Bug fixes

    • Don’t stumble over an exception without a message (Hans Hasselberg)
    • Remove non-ascii characters from comments that were choking rcov (Geoffrey Byers)
    • Fixed backtrace so it doesn’t include lines from before the autorun at_exit hook (Myron Marston)
    • Include RSpec::Matchers when first example group is defined, rather than just before running the examples. This works around an obscure bug in ruby 1.9 that can cause infinite recursion. (Myron Marston)
    • Don’t send example_group_[started|finished] to formatters for empty groups.
    • Get specs passing on jruby (Sidu Ponnappa)
    • Fix bug where mixing nested groups and outer-level examples gave unpredictable :line_number behavior (Artur MaƂecki)
    • Regexp.escape the argument to —example (tip from Elliot Winkler)
    • Correctly pass/fail pending block with message expectations

full changelog

  • Enhancements

    • Add support for any_instance.stub and any_instance.should_receive (Sidu Ponnappa and Andy Lindeman)
