Hi All,

This release "fixes" Test::Smoke wrt. the changed output of
Test::Harness (which I really don't like!).

Windows smokes should be restored. Inconsistency reports should be
restored. And finally harness_only reports should be back.

HTH +
Good luck,

-- Abe.

    By default, does Test::Smoke run the tests using ./TEST, and then only re-run
    with ./harness if tests fail? Or does it now use Test::Harness first time?

    That depends on the configuration of the smoke.

    During the configuration the question is asked:

    'Use harness only (skip TEST)?'

    If you answer n then ./TEST is run and if there is a failure then
    ./harness is run.
    Smokes that are configured like this and run a blead smoke (with
    Test::Smoke 1.33) will show FAIL(X) and the failures won't be visible.
    (assuming there was a failure).

    If you answer y then only ./harness is run.
    Smokes that are configured like this and run a blead smoke (with
    Test::Smoke 1.33) will show PASS-so-far and the failures won't be
    visible. (assuming there was a failure).


    Everyone running a blead smoke should upgrade Test::Smoke.

    Kind regards,

    Bram

    Ah right. So anyone using harness can now enjoy the speed up from setting
    TEST_JOBS in their environment?
    Everyone running a blead smoke should upgrade Test::Smoke.
    At least, they can if they upgrade?

    Correct.

    Or if 'Extra options for Test::Harness 3 (HARNESS_OPTIONS)' during
    smoke configuration is/was set to j5 (were 5 is the number of jobs)

    By default, it uses t/TEST and ./harness is used for extended reporting
    on failed tests.
