pytest 8.2.0 (2024-04-27)


  • #​12069: A deprecation warning is now raised when implementations of one of the following hooks request a deprecated py.path.local parameter instead of the pathlib.Path parameter which replaced it:

    • pytest_ignore_collect{.interpreted-text role="hook"} - the path parameter - use collection_path instead.
    • pytest_collect_file{.interpreted-text role="hook"} - the path parameter - use file_path instead.
    • pytest_pycollect_makemodule{.interpreted-text role="hook"} - the path parameter - use module_path instead.
    • pytest_report_header{.interpreted-text role="hook"} - the startdir parameter - use start_path instead.
    • pytest_report_collectionfinish{.interpreted-text role="hook"} - the startdir parameter - use start_path instead.

    The replacement parameters are available since pytest 7.0.0. The old parameters will be removed in pytest 9.0.0.

    See legacy-path-hooks-deprecated{.interpreted-text role="ref"} for more details.


  • #​11871: Added support for reading command line arguments from a file using the prefix character @, like e.g.: pytest @​tests.txt. The file must have one argument per line.

    See Read arguments from file <args-from-file>{.interpreted-text role="ref"} for details.


  • #​11523: pytest.importorskip{.interpreted-text role="func"} will now issue a warning if the module could be found, but raised ImportError{.interpreted-text role="class"} instead of ModuleNotFoundError{.interpreted-text role="class"}.

    The warning can be suppressed by passing exc_type=ImportError to pytest.importorskip{.interpreted-text role="func"}.

    See import-or-skip-import-error{.interpreted-text role="ref"} for details.

  • #​11728: For unittest-based tests, exceptions during class cleanup (as raised by functions registered with TestCase.addClassCleanup <unittest.TestCase.addClassCleanup>{.interpreted-text role="meth"}) are now reported instead of silently failing.

  • #​11777: Text is no longer truncated in the short test summary info section when -vv is given.

  • #​12112: Improved namespace packages detection when consider_namespace_packages{.interpreted-text role="confval"} is enabled, covering more situations (like editable installs).

  • #​9502: Added PYTEST_VERSION{.interpreted-text role="envvar"} environment variable which is defined at the start of the pytest session and undefined afterwards. It contains the value of pytest.__version__, and among other things can be used to easily check if code is running from within a pytest run.

Bug Fixes

  • #​12065: Fixed a regression in pytest 8.0.0 where test classes containing setup_method and tests using @staticmethod or @classmethod would crash with AttributeError: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'setup_method'.

    Now the request.instance <pytest.FixtureRequest.instance>{.interpreted-text role="attr"} attribute of tests using @staticmethod and @classmethod is no longer None, but a fresh instance of the class, like in non-static methods. Previously it was None, and all fixtures of such tests would share a single self.

  • #​12135: Fixed issue where fixtures adding their finalizer multiple times to fixtures they request would cause unreliable and non-intuitive teardown ordering in some instances.

  • #​12194: Fixed a bug with --importmode=importlib and --doctest-modules where child modules did not appear as attributes in parent modules.

  • #​1489: Fixed some instances where teardown of higher-scoped fixtures was not happening in the reverse order they were initialized in.

Trivial/Internal Changes

  • #​12069: pluggy>=1.5.0 is now required.
  • #​12167: cache <cache>{.interpreted-text role="ref"}: create supporting files (CACHEDIR.TAG, .gitignore, etc.) in a temporary directory to provide atomic semantics.
