This release brings two new experimental features, generator support and a -fno-exceptions support. Being experimental means that they will not be subject to the usual stability guarantees provided by semver.

Improvements

  • Various small runtime performance improvements
  • CAPTURE macro is now variadic
  • Added AND_GIVEN macro (#1360)
  • Added experimental support for data generators
  • Added support for compiling and running Catch without exceptions

Fixes

  • Suppressed -Wnon-virtual-dtor warnings in Matchers (#1357)
  • Suppressed -Wunreachable-code warnings in floating point matchers (#1350)

CMake

  • It is now possible to override which Python is used to run Catch's tests (#1365)
  • Catch now provides infrastructure for adding tests that check compile-time configuration
  • Catch no longer tries to install itself when used as a subproject (#1373)
  • Catch2ConfigVersion.cmake is now generated as arch-independent (#1368)
    • This means that installing Catch from 32-bit machine and copying it to 64-bit one works (this is what e.g. conan does)

This release changes the include paths provided by our CMake and pkg-config integration. The proper include path for the single-header when using one of the above is now <catch2/catch.hpp>. This change also necessitated changes to paths inside the repository, so that the single-header version is now at single_include/catch2/catch.hpp, rather than single_include/catch.hpp.

Fixes

  • Fixed Objective-C++ build
  • -Wunused-variable suppression no longer leaks from Catch's header under Clang
  • Implementation of the experimental new output capture can now be disabled (#1335)
    • This allows building Catch2 on platforms that do not provide things like dup or tmpfile.
  • The JUnit and XML reporters will no longer skip over successful tests when running without -s (#1264, #1267, #1310)
    • See improvements for more details

Improvements

  • pkg-config and CMake integration has been rewritten
    • If you use them, the new include path is #include <catch2/catch.hpp>
    • CMake installation now also installs scripts from contrib/
    • For details see the new documentation
  • Reporters now have a new customization point, ReporterPreferences::shouldReportAllAssertions
    • When this is set to false and the tests are run without -s, passing assertions are not sent to the reporter.
    • Defaults to false.
  • Added DYNAMIC_SECTION, a section variant that constructs its name using stream
    • This means that you can do DYNAMIC_SECTION("For X := " << x).

To fix some of the bugs, some behavior had to change in potentially breaking manner.
This means that even though this is a patch release, it might not be a drop-in replacement.

Fixes

  • Listeners are now called before reporter
    • This was always documented to be the case, now it actually works that way
  • Catch's commandline will no longer accept multiple reporters
    • This was done because multiple reporters never worked properly and broke things in non-obvious ways
    • This has potential to be a breaking change
  • MinGW is now detected as Windows platform w/o SEH support (#1257)
    • This means that Catch2 no longer tries to use POSIX signal handling when compiled with MinGW
  • Fixed potential UB in parsing tags using non-ASCII characters (#1266)
    • Note that Catch2 still supports only ASCII test names/tags/etc
  • TEST_CASE_METHOD can now be used on classnames containing commas (#1245)
    • You have to enclose the classname in extra set of parentheses
  • Fixed insufficient alt stack size for POSIX signal handling (#1225)
  • Fixed compilation error on Android due to missing std::to_string in C++11 mode (#1280)
  • Fixed the order of user-provided FALLBACK_STRINGIFIER in stringification machinery (#1024)
    • It was intended to be replacement for built-in fallbacks, but it was used after them.
    • This has potential to be a breaking change
  • Fixed compilation error when a type has an operator<< with templated lhs (#1285, #1306)

Improvements

  • Added a new, experimental, output capture (#1243)
    • This capture can also redirect output written via C apis, e.g. printf
    • To opt-in, define CATCH_CONFIG_EXPERIMENTAL_REDIRECT in the implementation file
  • Added a new fallback stringifier for classes derived from std::exception
    • Both StringMaker specialization and operator<< overload are given priority

Miscellaneous

  • contrib/ now contains dbg scripts that skip over Catch's internals (#904, #1283)
    • gdbinit for gdb lldbinit for lldb
  • CatchAddTests.cmake no longer strips whitespace from tests (#1265, #1281)
  • Online documentation now describes --use-colour option (#1263)

Note: If you haven't, please read release notes of v2.2.0

Fixes

  • Fixed bug in WithinAbs::match() failing spuriously (#1228)
  • Fixed clang-tidy diagnostic about virtual call in destructor (#1226)
  • Reduced the number of GCC warnings suppression leaking out of the header (#1090, #1091)
    • Only -Wparentheses should be leaking now
  • Added upper bound on the time benchmark timer calibration is allowed to take (#1237)
    • On platforms where std::chrono::high_resolution_clock's resolution is low, the calibration would appear stuck
  • Fixed compilation error when stringifying static arrays of unsigned chars (#1238)

Improvements

  • XML encoder now hex-encodes invalid UTF-8 sequences (#1207)
    • This affects xml and junit reporters
    • Some invalid UTF-8 parts are left as is, e.g. surrogate pairs. This is because certain extensions of UTF-8 allow them, such as WTF-8.
  • CLR objects (T^) can now be stringified (#1216)
    • This affects code compiled as C++/CLI
  • Added PredicateMatcher, a matcher that takes an arbitrary predicate function (#1236)

Others

  • Modified CMake-installed pkg-config to allow #include <catch.hpp>(#1239)
    • The plans to standardize on #include <catch2/catch.hpp> are still in effect

Note: Please read release notes of v2.2.0

Fixes

  • Fixed compilation error when compiling Catch2 with std=c++17 against libc++ (#1214)
    • Clara (Catch2's CLI parsing library) used std::optional without including it explicitly
  • Fixed Catch2 return code always being 0 (#1215)
    • In the words of STL, "We feel superbad about letting this in"

Important notice

There has been a long debate about the proper way of including the catch.hpp single include.
While we still think that the preferred way is to vendor the single include header, we have decided to use #include <catch2/catch.hpp> through our documentation and CMake scripts. To participate in the discussion, visit #1202 or our Discord.

This change has not yet taken place, but should happen during the next couple of minor releases.

Fixes

  • Hidden tests are not listed by default when listing tests (#1175)
    • This makes catch_discover_tests CMake script work better
  • Fixed regression that meant <windows.h> could potentially not be included properly (#1197)
  • Fixed installing Catch2ConfigVersion.cmake when Catch2 is a subproject. (#1181)

Improvements

  • Added an option to warn (+ exit with error) when no tests were ran (#1158)
    • Use as -w NoTests
  • Added provisional support for Emscripten (#1114)
  • Added a way to override the fallback stringifier (#1024)
    • This allows project's own stringification machinery to be easily reused for Catch
  • Catch::Session::run() now accepts char const * const *, allowing it to accept array of string literals (#1031, #1178)
    • The embedded version of Clara was bumped to v1.1.3
  • Various minor performance improvements
  • Added support for DJGPP DOS crosscompiler (#1206)
