Ivan's Brain Dump


This is a significant update to the Test Adapter with substantial improvements on which I have been working over the past weeks.

Get it here: https://github.com/machine-visualstudio/machine.vstestadapter/releases/tag/v2.0.0-rc1

  • New test discovery engine built directly on top of MSpec replaces old Mono.Cecil based one:

    • Full support for [Behavior] and Behaves_like<> and everything MSpec
    • Full support for assembly binding (.config) during test discovery (and execution)
  • Out of the box support for Visual Studio Online, TFS, Visual Studio Team Services through the NuGet package

    • Major performance improvements when running whole test assemblies
    • Much clearer test result output
    • Fully compatible with VS parallel assembly execution (enabled through MaxCpuCount set to 0 in *.runsettings)
  • Inner exceptions are now displayed in failed test results

  • Tests in Visual Studio IDE are now displayed as English text
