@philsquared philsquared released this Feb 13, 2017 · 53 commits to master since this release

Fixes and minor improvements

Xml:

(technically the first two are breaking changes but are also fixes and arguably break few if any people)

  • C-escape control characters instead of XML encoding them (which requires XML 1.1)
  • Revert XML output to XML 1.0
  • Can provide stylesheet references by extending the XML reporter
  • Added description and tags attribites to XML Reporter
  • Tags are closed and the stream flushed more eagerly to avoid stdout interpolation

Other:

  • REQUIRE_THROWS_AS now catches exception by const& and reports expected type
  • In SECTIONs the file/ line is now of the SECTION. not the TEST_CASE
  • Added std:: qualification to some functions from C stdlib
  • Removed use of RTTI (dynamic_cast) that had crept back in
  • Silenced a few more warnings in different circumstances
  • Travis improvements

v1.7.1

@horenmar horenmar released this Feb 7, 2017

Fixes:

  • Fixed inconsistency in defining NOMINMAX and WIN32_LEAN_AND_MEAN inside catch.hpp.
  • Fixed SEH-related compilation error under older MinGW compilers, by making Windows SEH handling opt-in for compilers other than MSVC.
  • Fixed compilation error under MinGW caused by improper compiler detection.
  • Fixed XML reporter sometimes leaving an empty output file when a test ends with signal/structured exception.
  • Fixed XML reporter not reporting captured stdout/stderr.
  • Fixed possible infinite recursion in Windows SEH.
  • Fixed possible compilation error caused by Catch's operator overloads being ambiguous in regards to user-defined templated operators.

v1.7.0

@horenmar horenmar released this Feb 1, 2017

Features/ Changes:

  • Catch now runs significantly faster for passing tests
    • Microbenchmark focused on Catch's overhead went from ~3.4s to ~0.7s.
    • Real world test using JSON for Modern C++'s test suite went from ~6m 25s to ~4m 14s.
  • Catch can now run specific sections within test cases.
    • For now the support is only basic (no wildcards or tags), for details see the documentation.
  • Catch now supports SEH on Windows as well as signals on Linux.
    • After receiving a signal, Catch reports failing assertion and then passes the signal onto the previous handler.
  • Approx can be used to compare values against strong typedefs (available in C++11 mode only).
    • Strong typedefs mean types that are explicitly convertible to double.
  • CHECK macro no longer stops executing section if an exception happens.
  • Certain characters (space, tab, etc) are now pretty printed.
    • This means that a char c = ' '; REQUIRE(c == '\t'); would be printed as ' ' == '\t', instead of == 9.

Fixes:

  • Text formatting no longer attempts to access out-of-bounds characters under certain conditions.
  • THROW family of assertions no longer trigger -Wunused-value on expressions containing explicit cast.
  • Breaking into debugger under OS X works again and no longer requires DEBUG to be defined.
  • Compilation no longer breaks under certain compiler if a lambda is used inside assertion macro.

Other:

  • Catch's CMakeLists now defines install command.
  • Catch's CMakeLists now generates projects with warnings enabled.

v1.6.1

@horenmar horenmar released this Jan 20, 2017 · 161 commits to master since this release

Features/ Changes:

  • Catch now supports breaking into debugger on Linux

Fixes:

  • Generators no longer leak memory (generators are still unsupported in general)
  • JUnit reporter now reports UTC timestamps, instead of "tbd"
  • CHECK_THAT macro is now properly defined as CATCH_CHECK_THAT when using CATCH_ prefixed macros

Other:

  • Types with overloaded && operator are no longer evaluated twice when used in an assertion macro.
  • The use of __COUNTER__ is supressed when Catch is parsed by CLion
    • This change is not active when compiling a binary
  • Approval tests can now be run on Windows
  • CMake will now warn if a file is present in the include folder but not is not enumerated as part of the project
  • Catch now defines NOMINMAX and WIN32_LEAN_AND_MEAN before including windows.h

  • Standardize C++11 feature toggles

Fixes:
