This is expected to be the last beta release of NUnit 2.5. We hope that you will test it and file bugs where needed so that we can prepare a production release in short order.

NUnit 2.5 Alpha 4 Released

The NUnit 2.5 Alpha-4 release has a great many new features, particularly with respect to asserts and assertion syntax. It also incorporates an experimental feature that allows running tests in a separate process, using a different version of the common language runtime than that under which NUnit itself is running.

Note that this is still alpha level software, although the assert-related features are pretty stable at this time.

NUnit 2.5 Alpha 3 Released

Although this is still an alpha-level release, NUnit 2.5 Alpha-3

to a wider audience than the two earlier alphas. As always, it

isn't advisable to commit yourself to alpha features for production

work, but since this release will install side-by-side with

whatever release you already use, we hope you'll give it a try -

and give us some feedback.... read more
