NUnit 2.5 Alpha 2 Released

With a European trip about to start, I decided to release a second Alpha so that the new stuff would get some visibility. I won’t be doing another release till late June, so please give this one a try.

As compared to 2.4, NUnit 2.5 has quite a lot:

  • Data-driven tests using [TestCase] and [DataSource]
  • Additional asserts and constraints, including inline exception tests.
  • Parallel and distributed testing using pNUnit.
  • Bundled addins, now including RowTest and CSUnitAddin.

For more info, see the release notes.

In addition, watch the NUnit mailing lists or this blog for info about other extensions as they are released for NUnit 2.5.
