First off, if you're new to testing, you should probably just go use the UNITTEST framework included with R2013a and later. It will (hopefully) have better documentation and better support. On the other hand if you've got lots of existing xUnit tests, if you want to take advantage of the extra features of this framework, or if you just prefer to use open-sourced code, keep reading.
* Now that Steve Eddins is no longer updating his MATLAB xUnit test framework, this is its new home.
* Version 4.1.0 has been tested against every release from 2013b - 2016b, and is probably compatible with even older versions.
Highlights of release 4.0.0:
* "runtests" command renamed to "runxunit" so it can coexist peacefully with the unit testing framework added in R2013a.
* JUnit-style XML test reports for use with tools like Jenkins.
* Obsolete crap from the MTEST era removed.
* Semantic versioning and naming for everyone's sanity.
Highlights of release 4.1.0:
* Adds compatibility with 2016b.
