Announcing TestNG 2.1

I am happy to announce the availability of TestNG 2.1 ( Some of the new features include:

* invocationCount and successPercentage, which I described in a previous entry (, and which allow you to invoke a test method
a certain number of times while allowing some of these invocations to fail. If the number of failures is under a certain threshold, the test is still considered a success.

* timeOut is now applicable to all test methods. Whether you are running your tests in parallel or not, you can specify a time-out for your test method and if it fails to complete within the given amount of time, TestNG will mark it as a failure.

* dependsOnMethods was the most requested feature. You can now specify dependencies on a method-based basis (no need to specify a group if your dependency graph is simple). You can even mix dependsOnMethods and dependsOnGroups.

* ... and of course, numerous bug fixes and other additions.

A special thanks to Alexandru Popescu who has pulled all-nighters to make this release happen!

We have an exciting list of new features lined up for our next version, among which a plug-in API, but in the meantime, enjoy TestNG 2.1.
