2.10.0 (2020-06-12)

  • Improved the --no-cov warning. Now it’s only shown if --no-cov is present before --cov.

  • Fixed internal failures that are caused by tests that change the current working directory by ensuring a consistent working directory when coverage is called. See #306 and coveragepy#881

2.8.1 (2019-10-05)

  • Fixed #348 - regression when only certain reports (html or xml) are used then --cov-fail-under always fails.

2.8.0 (2019-10-04)

  • Fixed RecursionError that can occur when using cleanup_on_signal or cleanup_on_sigterm. See: #294. The 2.7.x releases of pytest-cov should be considered broken regarding aforementioned cleanup API.

  • Added compatibility with future xdist release that deprecates some internals (match pytest-xdist master/worker terminology). Contributed by Thomas Grainger in #321

  • Fixed breakage that occurs when multiple reporting options are used. Contributed by Thomas Grainger in #338.

  • Improved documentation regarding subprocess and multiprocessing. Contributed in #265.

  • Improved pytest_cov.embed.cleanup_on_sigterm to be reentrant (signal deliveries while signal handling is running won’t break stuff).

  • Added pytest_cov.embed.cleanup_on_signal for customized cleanup.

  • Improved cleanup code and fixed various issues with leftover data files. All contributed in #265 or #262.

  • Improved examples. Now there are two examples for the common project layouts, complete with working coverage configuration. The examples have CI testing. Contributed in #267.

  • Fixed broken no_cover check when running doctests. Contributed by Terence Honles in #200.

  • Fixed various issues with path normalization in reports (when combining coverage data from parallel mode). Fixes #130. Contributed by Ryan Hiebert & Ionel Cristian Mărieș in #178.

  • Report generation failures don’t raise exceptions anymore. A warning will be logged instead. Fixes #161.

  • Fixed multiprocessing issue on Windows (empty env vars are not passed). Fixes #165.

  • Add support for specifying output location for html, xml, and annotate report. Contributed by Patrick Lannigan in PR#113.

  • Fix bug hiding test failure when cov-fail-under failed.

  • For coverage >= 4.0, match the default behaviour of coverage report and error if coverage fails to find the source instead of just printing a warning. Contributed by David Szotten in PR#116.

  • Added the --cov-append command line options. Contributed by Christian Ledermann in PR#80.

  • Added --cov-fail-under, akin to the new fail_under option in coverage-4.0 (automatically activated if there’s a [report] fail_under = ... in .coveragerc).

  • Changed --cov-report=term to automatically upgrade to --cov-report=term-missing if there’s [run] show_missing = True in .coveragerc.

  • Changed --cov so it can be used with no path argument (in which case the source settings from .coveragerc will be used instead).

  • Fixed .pth installation to work in all cases (install, easy_install, wheels, develop etc).

  • Fixed .pth uninstallation to work for wheel installs.

  • Support for coverage 4.0.

  • Data file suffixing changed to use coverage’s data_suffix=True option (instead of the custom suffixing).

  • Avoid warning about missing coverage data (just like coverage.control.process_startup).

  • Fixed a race condition when running with xdist (all the workers tried to combine the files). It’s possible that this issue is not present in pytest-cov 1.8.X.
