It also features testing APIs for multiple languages, integration with GDB and profiling tools, and a plugin system that lets developers modify the framework in new useful ways, such as adding new test exchange data formats. This presentation briefly covers Avocado's design goals, followed by a more thorough demo of its capabilities and use cases.
