New 1.0.3 release

A new version 1.0.3 of EvoSuite has now been released. This is the version used at this year’s SBST tool competition.

Besides a bunch of bug fixes and performance improvements, we have also included test naming, where tests are not named with numbers (test1, test2, etc.) but based on what they cover (testFoo, testBarReturnsTrue, etc.) If you want to try this feature, run EvoSuite with the option -Dtest_naming_strategy=coverage.

Release data is available 1.0.3 release results.
