gb version 0.4.2 is a minor bug fix release which adds one new feature, nope mode.
gb test will cause the test binary to be compiled as per usual, however the execution will be skipped.
Nope mode is conceptually the same as
gb test -run=XXX (or some other non-matching regexp) but also avoids expensive
initialisation if your test binaries do a lot of setup work before hitting
testing.main. See #599 for details.
Please leave feedback on this feature via the issue tracker.
For more details, please consult the 0.4.2 release notes available on Github.
