Rutema 0.4 Released

rutema version 0.4 has been released!

execution of tests as well as an example implementation as
proof-of-concept for the ideas behind it.

It’s purpose is to provide a set of classes and a framework that will
allow testers to specify and execute tests in heterogeneous testing

A heterogeneous testing environment would be one where several testing
tools are put to use, each with it’s own scripts and ways to define
Rutema will allow you to combine tools, take care of logging, reporting,
archiving of results and formalize execution of automated and manual
