This PR updates pytest from 3.6.4 to 3.7.0.




Deprecations and Removals

- `2639 <>`_: ``pytest_namespace`` has been deprecated.

See the documentation for ``pytest_namespace`` hook for suggestions on how to deal
with this in plugins which use this functionality.

- `3661 <>`_: Calling a fixture function directly, as opposed to request them in a test function, now issues a ``RemovedInPytest4Warning``. It will be changed into an error in pytest ``4.0``.

This is a great source of confusion to new users, which will often call the fixture functions and request them from test functions interchangeably, which breaks the fixture resolution model.


- `2283 <>`_: New ``package`` fixture scope: fixtures are finalized when the last test of a *package* finishes. This feature is considered **experimental**, so use it sparingly.

- `3576 <>`_: ``Node.add_marker`` now supports an ``append=True/False`` parameter to determine whether the mark comes last (default) or first.

- `3579 <>`_: Fixture ``caplog`` now has a ``messages`` property, providing convenient access to the format-interpolated log messages without the extra data provided by the formatter/handler.

- `3610 <>`_: New ``--trace`` option to enter the debugger at the start of a test.

- `3623 <>`_: Introduce ``pytester.copy_example`` as helper to do acceptance tests against examples from the project.

Bug Fixes

- `2220 <>`_: Fix a bug where fixtures overridden by direct parameters (for example parametrization) were being instantiated even if they were not being used by a test.

- `3695 <>`_: Fix ``ApproxNumpy`` initialisation argument mixup, ``abs`` and ``rel`` tolerances were flipped causing strange comparsion results.
Add tests to check ``abs`` and ``rel`` tolerances for ``np.array`` and test for expecting ``nan`` with ``np.array()``

- `980 <>`_: Fix truncated locals output in verbose mode.

Improved Documentation

- `3295 <>`_: Correct the usage documentation of ``--last-failed-no-failures`` by adding the missing ``--last-failed`` argument in the presented examples, because they are misleading and lead to think that the missing argument is not needed.

Trivial/Internal Changes

- `3519 <>`_: Now a ```` file is created in ``.pytest_cache`` to make it clear why the directory exists.
