                            Dfect 0.1.0

                Assertion testing library for Ruby


   Dfect is an assertion testing library for Ruby that
   emphasizes a simple assertion vocabulary, instant
   debuggability of failures, and flexibility in composing

   Dfect is exciting because:

     * It has only 5 methods to remember: D F E C T.

     * It lets you debug assertion failures interactively.

     * It keeps a detailed report of assertion failures.

     * It lets you nest tests and execution hooks.

     * It is implemented in a mere 313 lines of code.

Version 0.1.0 (2009-04-28)

   This release adds new variations to assertion methods, fixes
   several bugs, and improves test coverage.

   Thank you

     * François Beausoleil contributed patches for both code
       and tests! :-)

   New features

     * Added [1]negation (m!) and [2]sampling (m?) variations to
       [3]assertion methods.
       These new methods implement assertion functionality
       missing so far (previously we could not assert that a
       given exception was NOT thrown) and thereby allow us to
       fully test Dfect using itself.

     * Added documentation on [4]how to insulate tests from the
       global Ruby namespace.

   Bug fixes

     * The E() method did not consider the case where a block
       does not raise anything as a failure. --François

     * When creating a report about an assertion failure, an
       exception would be thrown if any local variables pointed
       to an empty array.

     * The Dfect::<() method broke the inheritance-checking
       behavior of the < class method.
       Added a bypass to the originial behavior so that RCov::XX
       can properly generate a report about code that uses

     * Added workaround for YAML error when serializing a class
TypeError: can't dump anonymous class Class


     * Filled the big holes in test coverage. Everything except
       the runtime debugging logic is now covered by the unit
