Hi All,

Just installed the latest PHPUnit (3.5.something) on my Mac, there seem to be some issues with how SIlverstripe includes it.

I get these errors repeatedly:

[User Notice] Please no longer include "PHPUnit/Framework.php".

I was wondering what the recommended version is?

I have tried 3.0.0, but am getting errors like:

Warning: set_error_handler() expects the argument (PHPUnit_Util_ErrorHandler::handleError) to be a valid callback in /Users/morven/Sites/co/2010-xmas-game/sapphire/dev/SapphireTest.php on line 667

Does SS work best with pre v3 versions of PHPUnit?

Ok, I have uninstalled and re-installed a load of different versions of PHP unit. It seems that 3.4.x works best.

I am using 3.4.9 with SS 2.4.1

Hope that helps someone. Not sure if this the "recommended" version, but seems to work pretty well.

PHPUnit 3.5 should work with 2.4.3 once it's released, there were recent changes to support this new version since it's quite different to 3.4.

PHPUnit 3.4 should work without any problems on 2.4.1, 2.4.2 and 2.4.3 once it's released.
