Default Behavior

  • #2879: By default, Mocha will no longer force the process to exit once all tests complete. This means any test code (or code under test) which would normally prevent node from exiting will do so when run in Mocha. Supply the --exit flag to revert to pre-v4.0.0 behavior (@ScottFreeCode, @boneskull)
