test_server_h will now recognize info_reports written by
ct connection handlers (according to the description in
cth_conn_log) and ignore them as they will be completely
handled by by ct_conn_log_h.</p>
          <p>
Earlier test_server_h would print a tag (testcase name)
before forwarding the report to error_logger_tty_h. This
would cause lots of tags in the log with no info report
following (since error_logger_tty_h did not handle them).</p>

It is now possible to sort the HTML tables by clicking on
the header elements. In order to reset a sorted table,
the browser window should simply be refreshed. This
feature requires that the browser supports javascript,
and has javascript execution enabled. If the 'ct_run
-basic_html' flag is used, no javascript code is included
in the generated HTML code.</p>

Verbosity levels for log printouts has been added. This
makes it possible to specify preferred verbosity for
different categories of log printouts, as well as general
printouts (such as standard IO), to allow control over
which strings get printed and which get ignored. New
versions of the Common Test logging functions, ct:log,
ct:pal and ct:print, have been introduced, with a new
Importance argument added. The Importance value is
compared to the verbosity level at runtime. More
information can be found in the chapter about Logging in
the Common Test User's Guide.</p>

The Erlang/OTP test runner ts has been extended to allow
cross compilation of test suites. To cross compile the
test suites first follow the normal cross compilation
procedures and release the tests on the build host. Then
install ts using an xcomp specification file and compile
test suites using ts:compile_testcases/0. For more
details see $ERL_TOP/xcomp/README.md.</p>

          <p>
After a test case timeout or abortion, the
end_per_testcase function executes on a new dedicated
process. The group leader for this process should be set
to the IO server for the test case, which was not done
properly. The result of this error was that no warnings
about end_per_testcase failing or timing out were ever
printed in the test case log. Also, help functions such
as e.g. test_server:stop_node/1, attempting to
synchronize with the IO server, would hang. The fault has
been corrected.</p>

          <p>
A deadlock situation could occur if Common Test is
forwarding error_handler printouts to Test Server at the
same time a new test case is starting. This error has
been fixed.</p>
          <p>
Own Id: OTP-9894</p>
        </item>
        <item>
          <p>
When a test case was killed because of a timetrap
timeout, the current location (suite, case and line) was
not printed correctly in the log files. This has been
corrected.</p>

          <p>
Test Server and Common Test would add new error handlers
with each test run and fail to remove previously added
ones. In the case of Test Server, this would only happen
if SASL was not running on the test node. This has been
fixed.</p>
          <p>

          <p>
If a test case process was terminated due to an exit
signal from a linked process, Test Server failed to
report the correct name of the suite and case to the
framework. This has been corrected.</p>

          <p>
A new optional feature has been introduced that enables
Common Test to generate priv_dir directory names that are
unique for each test case or config function. The name of
the option/flag is 'create_priv_dir' and it can be set to
value 'auto_per_run' (which is the default, existing,
behaviour), or 'auto_per_tc' or 'manual_per_tc'. If
'auto_per_tc' is used, Test Server creates a dedicated
priv_dir automatically for each test case (which can be
very expensive in case of many and/or repeated cases). If
'manual_per_tc' is used, the user needs to create the
priv_dir explicitly by calling the new function
ct:make_priv_dir/0.</p>

It is now possible to use the post_end_per_testcase CT
hook function to print a comment for a test case in the
overview log file, even if the test case gets killed by a
timetrap or unknown exit signal, or if the
end_per_testcase function times out.</p>
          <p>

          <p>
Common Test will now print error information (with a time
stamp) in the test case log file immediately when a test
case fails. This makes it easier to see when, in time,
the fault actually occured, and aid the job of locating
relevant trace and debug printouts in the log.</p>

Test Server has been modified to check the SASL
errlog_type parameter when receiving an error logger
event, so that it doesn't print reports of type that the
user has disabled.</p>

By specifying a user defined function ({M,F,A} or fun) as
timetrap value, either by means of an info function or by
calling ct:timetrap/1, it is now possible to set a
timetrap that will be triggered when the user function
returns.</p>

If the optional configuration functions init_per_suite/1
and end_per_suite/1 are not implemented in the test
suite, local Common Test versions of these functions are
called instead, and will be displayed in the overview log
file. Any printouts made by the pre- or
post_init_per_suite and pre- or post_end_per_suite hook
functions are saved in the log files for these functions.</p>

The test case group info function has been implemented in
Common Test. Before execution of a test case group, a
call is now made to <c>TestSuite:group(GroupName)</c>.
The function returns a list of test properties, e.g. to
specify timetrap values, require configuration data, etc
(analogue to the test suite- and test case info
function). The scope of the properties set by
<c>group(GroupName)</c> is all test cases and sub-groups
of group <c>GroupName</c>.</p>

If a timetrap timeout occured during execution of of a

module. (This would only happen if the lib module was
compiled with ct.hrl included). This error has been
solved.</p>

A new option, 'logopts', has been introduced, to make it
possible to modify some aspects of the logging behaviour
in Common Test (or Test Server). For example, whenever an
io printout is made, test_server adds newline (\n) to the
end of the output string. This may not always be a
preferred action and can therefore be disabled by means
of "ct_run ... -logopts no_nl" (or ct:run_test([...,
{logopts,[no_nl]}])). A new framework callback function,
get_logopts/0, has been introduced (see the ct_framework
module for details).</p>

A new option, 'logopts', has been introduced, to make it
possible to modify some aspects of the logging behaviour
in Common Test (or Test Server). For example, if the html
version of the test suite source code should not be
generated during the test run (and consequently be
unavailable in the log file system), the feature may be
disabled by means of "ct_run ... -logopts no_src" (or
ct:run_test([..., {logopts,[no_src]}])). A new framework
callback function, get_logopts/0, has been introduced
(see the ct_framework module for details).</p>

When running tests with auto-compilation disabled, Common
Test could only display the test suite source code on
html format in the test case log if the source file was
located in the same directory as the pre-compiled suite.
This has been modified so that Common Test now tries to
locate the source file by means of the test suite module
info (Suite:module_info/1). As a result, a suite may now
be compiled to a different output directory (e.g.
$MYTEST/bin) than the source code directory (e.g.
$MYTEST/src), without the source-code-to-html generation
being affected.</p>

local or remote targets and log progress and results to
HTML pages. The main purpose of Test Server is to act as
engine inside customized test tools. A callback interface
for such framework applications is provided.</p>
