The Oslo team is pleased to announce the release of oslotest, the latest version of the oslo library with test base classes and fixtures.

This release includes:

* Add fixture for mock.patch.multiple
* Ensure that mock.patch.stopall is called last
* Remove differences between Python 2.x and 3.x versions
* Require six
* Add documentation for running oslo_debug_heler.sh
* Restructure oslotest docs
* Add pdb support to tox with debug helper shell script
* Updated from global requirements
* Cleaning up index.rst file
* Add known issue about time.time mocking
* Updated from global requirements
* Add API documentation
* Moving to use the mock module found in Python3

Of particular importance are the Python 2/3 changes related to making oslotest usable by projects that gate on python 3. We are now packaging version independent universal wheels and installing mox3 but not mox by default. If your project uses oslotest and mox, you may need to update your test-requirements.txt to ensure mox is installed. Alternately, you can use the fixtures in oslotest, which now use mox3 instead.

If you encounter problems with this release today, please report them in #openstack-oslo for quick turn-around.

After today, please file bugs in the launchpad bug tracker: https://bugs.launchpad.net/oslotest
