  • ginkgo now provides a hint if you accidentally forget to run ginkgo bootstrap to generate a *_suite_test.go file that actually invokes the Ginkgo test runner. #345
  • thanks to improvements in go test -c ginkgo no longer needs to fix Go's compilation output to ensure compilation errors are expressed relative to the CWD. [#357]
  • ginkgo watch -watchRegExp=... allows you to specify a custom regular expression to watch. Only files matching the regular expression are watched for changes (the default is \.go$) [#356]
  • ginkgo now always emits compilation output. Previously, only failed compilation output was printed out. [#277]
  • ginkgo -requireSuite now fails the test run if there are *_test.go files but go test fails to detect any tests. Typically this means you forgot to run ginkgo bootstrap to generate a suite file. [#344]
  • ginkgo -timeout=DURATION allows you to adjust the timeout for the entire test suite (default is 24 hours) [#248]

  • Significantly improved parallel test distribution. Now instead of pre-sharding test cases across workers (which can result in idle workers and poor test performance) Ginkgo uses a shared queue to keep all workers busy until all tests are complete. This improves test-time performance and consistency.
  • Skip(message) can be used to skip the current test.
  • Added extensions/table - a Ginkgo DSL for Table Driven Tests
  • Add GinkgoRandomSeed() - shorthand for config.GinkgoConfig.RandomSeed
  • Support for retrying flaky tests with --flakeAttempts
  • ginkgo ./... now recurses as you'd expect
  • Added Specify a synonym for It
  • Support colorise on Windows
  • Broader support for various go compilation flags in the ginkgo CLI

Bug Fixes:

  • Ginkgo tests now fail when you panic(nil) (#167)
