TestDriven.NET 2.0 released

Last week Jamie Cansdale announced the release of TestDriven.NET version 2.0 which is compatible with all versions of the .NET Framework.  TestDriven.NET is a  unit testing plug-in for Visual Studio.  TestDriven.NET supports multiple unit testing frameworks including NUnit, MBUnit and Visual Studio Team System. 

Use of TestDriven.NET facilitates the practice of Test Driven Development, TDD, in which a developer will write unit tests before they actually write code.  TDD has been proven to increase the quality of developer code and encourages complete code coverage.

Main Features of TestDriven.NET:

  • Works with all versions of VS.NET
  • Run unit tests virtually anywhere
  • Support of major unit test frameworks
  • Supports all major languages
  • Execute any method as an ad-hoc test
  • Runs in its own process

New Features in 2.0:

  • Reflector integration
  • Code Coverage with NCover or Team Coverage
  • Support for repeating a test run
  • Support for choosing a specific version of the .NET Framework
  • TypeMock.NET integration

Reaction in the blogosphere has been very positive with many supporting the new release and in good humour, Jamie himself submitted the news to Digg.
