    Welcome @plroebuck, @craigtaub, & @markowsiak to the team!

    :boom: Breaking Changes

    • โฌ‡๏ธ #3149: Drop Node.js v4.x support (@outsideris)
    • #3556: Changes to command-line options (@boneskull):
      • --grep and --fgrep are now mutually exclusive; attempting to use both will cause Mocha to fail instead of simply ignoring --grep
      • --compilers is no longer supported; attempting to use will cause Mocha to fail with a link to more information
      • -d is no longer an alias for --debug; -d is currently ignored
      • #3275: --watch-extensions no longer implies js; it must be explicitly added (@TheDancingCode)
    • #2908: tap reporter emits error messages (@chrmod)
    • #2819: When conditionally skipping in a before hook, subsequent before hooks and tests in nested suites are now skipped (@bannmoore)
    • #627: Emit filepath in "timeout exceeded" exceptions where applicable (@boneskull)
    • #3556: lib/template.html has moved to lib/browser/template.html (@boneskull)
    • #2576: An exception is now thrown if Mocha fails to parse or find a mocha.opts at a user-specified path (@plroebuck)
    • #3458: Instantiating a Base-extending reporter without a Runner parameter will throw an exception (@craigtaub)
    • #3125: For consumers of Mocha's programmatic API, all exceptions thrown from Mocha now have a code property (and some will have additional metadata). Some Error messages have changed. Please use the code property to check Error types instead of the message property; these descriptions will be localized in the future. (@craigtaub)

    ๐Ÿ—„ :fax: Deprecations

    These are soft-deprecated, and will emit a warning upon use. Support will be removed in (likely) the next major version of Mocha:

    • -gc users should use --gc-global instead
    • Consumers of the function exported by bin/options should now use the loadMochaOpts or loadOptions (preferred) functions exported by the lib/cli/options module

    Regarding the Mocha class constructor (from lib/mocha):

    • ๐Ÿ‘‰ Use property color: false instead of useColors: false
    • โฑ Use property timeout: false instead of enableTimeouts: false

    ๐Ÿ—„ All of the above deprecations were introduced by #3556.

    ๐Ÿ“ฆ mocha.opts is now considered "legacy"; please prefer RC file or package.json over mocha.opts.

    :tada: Enhancements

    โœจ Enhancements introduced in #3556:

    • ๐Ÿ“ฆ Mocha now supports "RC" files in JS, JSON, YAML, or package.json-based (using mocha property) format

      • .mocharc.js, .mocharc.json, .mocharc.yaml or .mocharc.yml are valid "rc" file names and will be automatically loaded
      • Use --config /path/to/rc/file to specify an explicit path
      • Use --package /path/to/package.json to specify an explicit package.json to read the mocha prop from
      • Use --no-config or --no-package to completely disable loading of configuration via RC file and package.json, respectively
      • Configurations are merged as applicable using the priority list:
      • Command-line arguments
      • RC file
      • package.json
      • mocha.opts
      • Mocha's own defaults
      • Check out these example config files
    • ๐Ÿ‘ Node/V8 flag support in mocha executable:

      • Support all allowed node flags as supported by the running version of node (also thanks to @demurgos)
      • Support any V8 flag by prepending --v8- to the flag name
      • All flags are also supported via config files, package.json properties, or mocha.opts
      • Debug-related flags (e.g., --inspect) now imply --no-timeouts
      • Use of e.g., --debug will automatically invoke --inspect if supported by running version of node
    • ๐Ÿ‘Œ Support negation of any Mocha-specific command-line flag by prepending --no- to the flag name

    • Interfaces now have descriptions when listed using --interfaces flag

    • ๐Ÿ‘ Mocha constructor supports all options

    • --extension is now an alias for --watch-extensions and affects non-watch-mode test runs as well. For example, to run only test/*.coffee (not test/*.js), you can do mocha --require coffee-script/register --extensions coffee.

    • #3552: tap reporter is now TAP13-capable (@plroebuck & @mollstam)

    • #3535: Mocha's version can now be queried programmatically via public property Mocha.prototype.version (@plroebuck)

    • #3428: xunit reporter shows diffs (@mlucool)

    • #2529: Runner now emits a retry event when tests are retried (reporters can listen for this) (@catdad)

    • #2962, #3111: In-browser notification support; warn about missing prereqs when --growl supplied (@plroebuck)
