Replace JUnit assertions by FEST assertions : we have a guide to easily convert JUnit assertions to FEST Assertions, check this page (note also that we plan to write an eclipse plugin to do this conversion task).
If you were already using FEST 1.4, have a look at our migration guide, it describes the breaking changes, but don't worry it should be easy to migrate.
If you have any questions, please use FEST user mailing list.
