Translations

Native JUnit 5 plugin

Our team is happy to announce the availability of kiwitcms-junit-plugin. This is a native JUnit 5 plugin which will read the results from your automated test suite and send them back to Kiwi TCMS.

Version 1.0.3 and the latest changes in master branch are still to be considered Beta quality. They are available for early preview and feedback.

Many thanks to Aneta Petkova who is the main contributor behind this plugin!

How to upgrade

If you are using Kiwi TCMS as a Docker container then:

cd Kiwi/
git pull
docker-compose down
docker pull kiwitcms/kiwi
docker pull centos/mariadb
docker-compose up -d
docker exec -it kiwi_web /Kiwi/manage.py migrate

Don't forget to backup before upgrade!

WARNING: kiwitcms/kiwi:latest and docker-compose.yml will always point to the latest available version! If you have to upgrade in steps, e.g. between several intermediate releases, you have to modify the above workflow:

# starting from an older Kiwi TCMS version
docker-compose down
docker pull kiwitcms/kiwi:<next_upgrade_version>
edit docker-compose.yml to use kiwitcms/kiwi:<next_upgrade_version>
docker-compose up -d
docker exec -it kiwi_web /Kiwi/manage.py migrate
# repeat until you have reached latest

Happy testing!
