We are excited to announce a new minor version release of TestBox version 4.3.x. To install just use CommandBox: install testbox --saveDev or to update your TestBox installation update testbox.

This update includes several cool new features and improvements that will delight your testing life! For example, we have integrated your favorite code editors to the simple reporter so you can now open the line of code that failed your test or created and exception!

You can avoid installing testbox in production by using the `install --production` CommandBox command.

What's New With 4.3.0

TestBox v4.3.0 includes several new features and bug fixes. Here are the release notes and major areas of improvements.

New Text Reporters

This release has revamped the text and mintext reporters. Check them out by adding reporter=text or reporter=mintext when running your tests.

Editor URL Integrations
