2.5.2 – 2012-08-29

It’s an improvement release for tmtms. --location is a similar feature to --line_number in RSpec. sub_test_case is a similar feature to context in shoulda-context and RSpec.

  • Added missing background color for 8 color environment.
  • Added workaround for NetBeans. [GitHub#38] [Reported by Marc Cooper]

  • Added Test::Unit::TestCase.sub_test_case that creates sub test case. The sub test case name isn’t limited Ruby’s constant name rule. You can specify the sub test case name in free form.
