Updated htmlEqual PR from James: https://github.com/jquery/qunit/pull/368 – needs review

Landed https://github.com/jquery/qunit/pull/387 – more reliable throws() assertion

Landed https://github.com/jquery/qunit/pull/384 – module/test filters now work in IE7/8 with file protocol

Support for pending tests like Mocha? “tests without a function body such that they show up in the list but have a different visual representation and do not count as either a success or a failure; rather, a new "pending" count is added as well.” – still not very convincing.

Better async testing!

Mocha looks at callback signature and makes tests async when a callback argument, usually named done, is present: http://visionmedia.github.com/mocha/#asynchronous-code

Can’t do that since we introduced the assert argument

Can do something like this:

  • test(…, function(assert) { var done = assert.async(); … done(); }
  • asyncTest(…, function(assert) { assert.done(); })

Going to land the two deprecation tickets, then release 1.11
