Fixes and minor improvements
(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
REQUIRE_THROWS_ASnow catches exception by
const&and reports expected type
SECTIONs the file/ line is now of the
SECTION. not the
- 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
- Fixed inconsistency in defining
- Fixed SEH-related compilation error under older MinGW compilers, by making Windows SEH handling opt-in for compilers other than MSVC.
- For specifics, look into the documentation.
- 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.
- 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
- This means that a
- Text formatting no longer attempts to access out-of-bounds characters under certain conditions.
- THROW family of assertions no longer trigger
-Wunused-valueon expressions containing explicit cast.
- Breaking into debugger under OS X works again and no longer requires
DEBUGto be defined.
- Compilation no longer breaks under certain compiler if a lambda is used inside assertion macro.
- Catch's CMakeLists now defines install command.
- Catch's CMakeLists now generates projects with warnings enabled.
- Catch now supports breaking into debugger on Linux
- Generators no longer leak memory (generators are still unsupported in general)
- JUnit reporter now reports UTC timestamps, instead of "tbd"
CHECK_THATmacro is now properly defined as
- 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
includefolder but not is not enumerated as part of the project
- Catch now defines
- This can be disabled if needed, see documentation for details.
- Moved CMakeLists.txt to root, made it friendlier for CLion and generating XCode and VS projects, and removed the manually maintained XCode and VS projects.
- Approx now supports
- Can now use
\to escape chars in test names on command line
- Standardize C++11 feature toggles
- Blue shell colour
- Missing argument to
- Don't encode extended ASCII in XML
- use std::shuffle on more compilers (fixes deprecation warning/error)
__COUNTER__more consistently (where available)
- Tweaks and changes to scripts - particularly for Approval test - to make them more portable
