The Codeception project (BDD testing in PHP) has gotten a major update to its feature set and has bumped up to v1.1:

Many core classes were refactored to solve the common issues and reduce the level of dark magic inside. Only white magic left. And that's really cool 'cause you don't need to study to source code to implement your custom hooks now. Codeception is rapidly evolving to be the professional testing tool, ready to use by testsers and developers through out the PHP world.

Improvements in this large update include an update to the method of test execution, "grabbers" (helper methods that can extract content from tests), the introduction of XPath support to locate items in the content pulled into the test and the integration with unit testing. Upgrade instructions are also included.
