I'm pleased to announce the release of shelltestrunner 1.3. New in this release:
I'm pleased to announce a new release of shelltestrunner!

* support latest Diff, cmdargs, test-framework; tested with GHC 7.6.1 (Magnus Therning)
shelltestrunner (executable: shelltest) is a portable
command-line tool for testing command-line programs, or general shell
commands, released under GPLv3+. It reads simple test specifications
defining a command to run, some input, and the expected output,
stderr, and exit status. It can run tests in parallel, selectively,
with a timeout, in color, etc.
Projects using it include hledger, Agda, and berp.

* fix unicode handling on GHC >= 7.2
The last release was 1.3.5, in 2015. The new version is 1.9, which
has substantial improvements and is recommended for all users.
More real-world testing and contributions will help us deliver 2.0.

shelltestrunner tests command-line programs (or arbitrary shell commands.)
It reads simple declarative tests specifying a command, some input, and
the expected output, and can run them run in parallel, selectively, with a
timeout, in color, and/or with differences highlighted. shelltestrunner
has been tested on gnu/linux, mac and windows; projects using it include
hledger, berp, cblrepo and eddie. shelltestrunner is free software
released under GPLv3+.
