Nose 0.11 - Python test framework with IronPython support

Python is blessed with many popular and powerful test frameworks. One of the most popular is nose, which has just released version 0.11.

Back in March I reported the partial success that Darrell Hawley had running nose with IronPython. Well, there's more news.
Better support for IronPython. (Note that Nose has supported Jython for several versions now.)

Thanks to Kevin Mitchell, nose is now more compatible with IronPython. IronPython is still not fully supported, but it should work. If you’d like to improve nose’s support for IronPython further, please join the nose developer’s list and volunteer to become the IronPython maintainer for nose!
Of course the Python standard library testing framework unittest works with IronPython and has had some interesting improvements recently. More details on that soon on my other blog.
