Release Notes

pytest-dev/pytest (pytest)

v7.4.3: pytest 7.4.3 (2023-10-24)

Compare Source

Bug Fixes

  • #​10447: Markers are now considered in the reverse mro order to ensure base class markers are considered first -- this resolves a regression.

  • #​11239: Fixed := in asserts impacting unrelated test cases.

  • #​11439: Handled an edge case where :data:sys.stderr might already be closed when :ref:faulthandler is tearing down.

v7.4.2: pytest 7.4.2 (2023-09-07)

Compare Source

Bug Fixes

  • #​11237: Fix doctest collection of functools.cached_property objects.

  • #​11306: Fixed bug using --importmode=importlib which would cause package files to be imported more than once in some cases.

  • #​11367: Fixed bug where user_properties where not being saved in the JUnit XML file if a fixture failed during teardown.

  • #​11394: Fixed crash when parsing long command line arguments that might be interpreted as files.

Improved Documentation

  • #​11391: Improved disclaimer on pytest plugin reference page to better indicate this is an automated, non-curated listing.

v7.4.1: pytest 7.4.1 (2023-09-02)

Compare Source

Bug Fixes

  • #​10337: Fixed bug where fake intermediate modules generated by --import-mode=importlib would not include the child modules as attributes of the parent modules.

  • #​10702: Fixed error assertion handling in pytest.approx when None is an expected or received value when comparing dictionaries.

  • #​10811: Fixed issue when using --import-mode=importlib together with --doctest-modules that caused modules to be imported more than once, causing problems with modules that have import side effects.

pytest 7.4.0 (2023-06-23)


  • #​10901: Added ExceptionInfo.from_exception() <pytest.ExceptionInfo.from_exception>{.interpreted-text role="func"}, a simpler way to create an ~pytest.ExceptionInfo{.interpreted-text role="class"} from an exception. This can replace ExceptionInfo.from_exc_info() <pytest.ExceptionInfo.from_exc_info()>{.interpreted-text role="func"} for most uses.


  • #​10872: Update test log report annotation to named tuple and fixed inconsistency in docs for pytest_report_teststatus{.interpreted-text role="hook"} hook.

  • #​10907: When an exception traceback to be displayed is completely filtered out (by mechanisms such as __tracebackhide__, internal frames, and similar), now only the exception string and the following message are shown:

    "All traceback entries are hidden. Pass [--full-trace]{.title-ref} to see hidden and internal frames.".

    Previously, the last frame of the traceback was shown, even though it was hidden.

  • #​10940: Improved verbose output (-vv) of skip and xfail reasons by performing text wrapping while leaving a clear margin for progress output.

    Added TerminalReporter.wrap_write() as a helper for that.

  • #​10991: Added handling of %f directive to print microseconds in log format options, such as log-date-format.

  • #​11005: Added the underlying exception to the cache provider's path creation and write warning messages.

  • #​11013: Added warning when testpaths{.interpreted-text role="confval"} is set, but paths are not found by glob. In this case, pytest will fall back to searching from the current directory.

  • #​11043: When [--confcutdir]{.title-ref} is not specified, and there is no config file present, the conftest cutoff directory ([--confcutdir]{.title-ref}) is now set to the rootdir <rootdir>{.interpreted-text role="ref"}. Previously in such cases, []{.title-ref} files would be probed all the way to the root directory of the filesystem. If you are badly affected by this change, consider adding an empty config file to your desired cutoff directory, or explicitly set [--confcutdir]{.title-ref}.

  • #​11081: The norecursedirs{.interpreted-text role="confval"} check is now performed in a pytest_ignore_collect{.interpreted-text role="hook"} implementation, so plugins can affect it.

    If after updating to this version you see that your [norecursedirs]{.title-ref} setting is not being respected, it means that a conftest or a plugin you use has a bad [pytest_ignore_collect]{.title-ref} implementation. Most likely, your hook returns [False]{.title-ref} for paths it does not want to ignore, which ends the processing and doesn't allow other plugins, including pytest itself, to ignore the path. The fix is to return [None]{.title-ref} instead of [False]{.title-ref} for paths your hook doesn't want to ignore.

  • #​8711: caplog.set_level() <pytest.LogCaptureFixture.set_level>{.interpreted-text role="func"} and caplog.at_level() <pytest.LogCaptureFixture.at_level>{.interpreted-text role="func"} will temporarily enable the requested level if level was disabled globally via logging.disable(LEVEL).

Bug Fixes

  • #​10831: Terminal Reporting: Fixed bug when running in --tb=line mode where tests report None.
  • #​11068: Fixed the --last-failed whole-file skipping functionality ("skipped N files") for non-python test files <non-python tests>{.interpreted-text role="ref"}.
  • #​11104: Fixed a regression in pytest 7.3.2 which caused to testpaths{.interpreted-text role="confval"} to be considered for loading initial conftests, even when it was not utilized (e.g. when explicit paths were given on the command line). Now the testpaths are only considered when they are in use.
  • #​1904: Fixed traceback entries hidden with __tracebackhide__ = True still being shown for chained exceptions (parts after "... the above exception ..." message).
  • #​7781: Fix writing non-encodable text to log file when using --debug.

Improved Documentation

  • #​9146: Improved documentation for caplog.set_level() <pytest.LogCaptureFixture.set_level>{.interpreted-text role="func"}.

Trivial/Internal Changes

  • #​11031: Enhanced the CLI flag for -c to now include --config-file to make it clear that this flag applies to the usage of a custom config file.

pytest 7.3.2 (2023-06-10)

Bug Fixes

  • #​10169: Fix bug where very long option names could cause pytest to break with OSError: [Errno 36] File name too long on some systems.
  • #​10894: Support for Python 3.12 (beta at the time of writing).
  • #​10987: testpaths{.interpreted-text role="confval"} is now honored to load root conftests.
  • #​10999: The [monkeypatch]{.title-ref} [setitem]{.title-ref}/[delitem]{.title-ref} type annotations now allow [TypedDict]{.title-ref} arguments.
  • #​11028: Fixed bug in assertion rewriting where a variable assigned with the walrus operator could not be used later in a function call.
  • #​11054: Fixed --last-failed's "(skipped N files)" functionality for files inside of packages (directories with []{.title-ref} files).

pytest 7.3.1 (2023-04-14)


  • #​10875: Python 3.12 support: fixed RuntimeError: TestResult has no addDuration method when running unittest tests.
  • #​10890: Python 3.12 support: fixed shutil.rmtree(onerror=...) deprecation warning when using tmp_path{.interpreted-text role="fixture"}.

Bug Fixes

  • #​10896: Fixed performance regression related to tmp_path{.interpreted-text role="fixture"} and the new tmp_path_retention_policy{.interpreted-text role="confval"} option.
  • #​10903: Fix crash INTERNALERROR IndexError: list index out of range which happens when displaying an exception where all entries are hidden. This reverts the change "Correctly handle __tracebackhide__ for chained exceptions." introduced in version 7.3.0.

pytest 7.3.0 (2023-04-08)


  • #​10525: Test methods decorated with @classmethod can now be discovered as tests, following the same rules as normal methods. This fills the gap that static methods were discoverable as tests but not class methods.
  • #​10755: console_output_style{.interpreted-text role="confval"} now supports progress-even-when-capture-no to force the use of the progress output even when capture is disabled. This is useful in large test suites where capture may have significant performance impact.
  • #​7431: --log-disable CLI option added to disable individual loggers.
  • #​8141: Added tmp_path_retention_count{.interpreted-text role="confval"} and tmp_path_retention_policy{.interpreted-text role="confval"} configuration options to control how directories created by the tmp_path{.interpreted-text role="fixture"} fixture are kept.


  • #​10226: If multiple errors are raised in teardown, we now re-raise an ExceptionGroup of them instead of discarding all but the last.
  • #​10658: Allow -p arguments to include spaces (eg: -p no:logging instead of -pno:logging). Mostly useful in the addopts section of the configuration file.
  • #​10710: Added start and stop timestamps to TestReport objects.
  • #​10727: Split the report header for rootdir, config file and testpaths so each has its own line.
  • #​10840: pytest should no longer crash on AST with pathological position attributes, for example testing AST produced by [Hylang <>\__]{.title-ref}.
  • #​6267: The full output of a test is no longer truncated if the truncation message would be longer than the hidden text. The line number shown has also been fixed.

Bug Fixes

  • #​10743: The assertion rewriting mechanism now works correctly when assertion expressions contain the walrus operator.
  • #​10765: Fixed tmp_path{.interpreted-text role="fixture"} fixture always raising OSError{.interpreted-text role="class"} on emscripten platform due to missing os.getuid{.interpreted-text role="func"}.
  • #​1904: Correctly handle __tracebackhide__ for chained exceptions.

Improved Documentation

  • #​10782: Fixed the minimal example in goodpractices{.interpreted-text role="ref"}: pip install -e . requires a version entry in pyproject.toml to run successfully.

Trivial/Internal Changes

  • #​10669: pytest no longer depends on the [attrs]{.title-ref} package (don't worry, nice diffs for attrs classes are still supported).
