View the full changelog
- [NEW] Completely rewrote Monkey Test to be a UI for the Test::Unit framework. It is now much faster and easier to use. This will also make it easier to add new types of output in the future.
- [NEW] You can now specify the directory in which to look for your tests with -d or --directory.
- [NEW] You can now specify the regular expression pattern to use when searching for test files with -p or --pattern.
- [NEW] There are now commands to specify only one type of tests within rails. These are -f/--functional, -u/--unit, and -i/--integration.
- [CHANGED] HTML output is currently not available. We really wanted to get 1.0.0 out there to you guys... We#39;ll add it soon, promise.

You'll also need ruby 1.8.5 for this version.
