The most prominent new feature is the optional ability to reuse existing containers. If this option is enabled, the testcontainers keep the container running after the test.
What does this mean?
You can avoid waiting for the upstart time of the Exasol database. To still offer isolation between the test runs, the testcontainers purge the database. You can also use this feature without the container reuse.
In addition, we've added support for BucketFS running on non-standard ports.
