Time for a development status upgrade?

    The "pre-alpha" status probably scares lots of people away.  We are starting to use cppUnit on my current project, but we had to overcome the natural fear of pre-alpha code first.  I wouldn't feel bad about seeing Beta on the code.  What do you guys think?

      Its depends of your definition of "beta". Here is the current status of CppUnit.

      - the cppunit core library is pretty solid. Most bug reports are linked to
      portability problem.
      - MFC TestRunner works well. There are still some few remaining bugs though.

      This is good because it means that you can actually use it for serious works. On
      the other hand:

      CppUnit is still evolving. Compatiblity break are to be expected from time to
      time (though we try to minimize those). That's why the status is still
      pre-alpha.

      I'd suggest that you join the list to keep tuned to possible compatibility break
      and possible work around if you plan to use CppUnit for serious work.

      Baptiste.
