Shoulda 4.0.1 - the lean and mean release

! look at that drool

Shoulda is a great tool for cleaning up your tests, but there was always some dirt under the hood that was keeping me up at night. I don’t want to just move complexity around - I want to remove it entirely.

A recent change in edge rails forced me to get off my butt and do that.

So everyone give a warm hello to the latest Shoulda gem. It now uses a Context class in the backend, prints out should_eventually tests in a clear way, names the bare shouldas nicely, and fixes a few small bugs.

I also took the opportunity to fix some of the outstanding issues in the shoulda rails plugin (with a lot of great help from the community).

So grab the latest plugin and have some fun:

piston import vendor/plugins/shoulda

Also, please let us know if you find any bugs or issues.
