3.0.0 (2023-11-01)

  • Dropped Python 2 support.

  • Added an optional non-pipe TestProcess mode. You can use file objects for processes that are too verbose for a pipe.

  • Added some tests.

2.1.2 (2021-05-02)

  • Fixed another regression caused by the universal_newlines for Windows.

2.1.1 (2020-07-23)

  • Fixed regression caused by the universal_newlines (now the internals don’t decode strings).

2.1.0 (2020-07-23)

  • Applied the cookiecutter-pylibrary templates.

  • TestProcess will use universal_newlines by default for the contained subprocess.Popen to make sure line buffering is actually used. This also fixes warnings on Python 3.

2.x (???)

  • Lots of wild stuff.
