I finally got around to trying pytest 2.4.
Actually, I tried 2.4.2, to be specific.
The first thing I wanted to try was the support for unittest fixtures.
As mentioned in pytest support for unittest style fixtures, they didn’t quite work in pytest 2.3.

Well, now fixtures work just like unittest, when run in pytest.

I started to add strikethrough marks in the pytest support for … post, but got bored.
I’ll have to just rewrite it sometime.

For now, suffice it to say that pytest now fully supports unittest fixtures. Yay!
