This is a technology preview of Test::Builder2. It is by no means complete or stable, but here's something to play with and see where it's going. WHAT TEST::BUILDER2 IS It is a rewrite of the skeleton that holds together all the popular Test:: libraries. Its aim is to increase flexibility and allow Perl authors to do pretty much whatever they please while still not having to worry about the minutea of test formats or coordinating with other test libraries. WHAT TEST::BUILDER2 IS NOT It is not a rewrite of Test::More. Maybe later we can do Test::More2. It doesn't directly effect how people write tests, but how people write test libraries (which people then use to write tests). Many things that were previously impossible are now possible. COMPATIBILITY Test::Builder2 is not directly compatible with Test::Builder, thus the new namespace, but Test::Builder will continue to work in harmony with Test::Builder2. WHAT WORKS Test event hooks Multiple formatters (ie. you can output something other than TAP) Assert stacks (ie. no more $Test::Builder::Level) A bunch of other stuff Test::Buidler is using pieces of Test::Builder2 WHAT DOESN'T WORK Structured diagnostics Comments (traditional unstrucutred diagnostics) Plan enforcement A bunch of other stuff WHERE TO LOOK The new code is in lib/Test/Builder2* and tests in t/Builder2/
