We made the following updates in this release.

Support for Visual Studio 2017

dotTEST can now be integrated with Visual Studio 2017. Support for C# 7.0 and VB.NET 15.0 are also included.

Collecting Coverage from Standalone Applications with Coverage Agent Manager

The coverage collection functionality has been extended to collect coverage information from standalone applications with Coverage Agent Manager–a web interface that allows you to collect coverage and test data during test execution; see Application Coverage for Standalone Applications for details.

Enhanced Workflow for Test Configurations

We've made it easier for you to interact with test configurations when working with dotTEST on your desktop. Now you can easily duplicate and customize an existing test configuration on DTP, as well as run a test configuration right from your IDE Preference page; see Creating Custom Test Configurations and Setting the Active Test Configuration for details.

Other Enhancements

  • Support for .NET Framework 4.7, which is bundled with dotTEST and can be automatically installed during dotTEST installation
  • Analyzing website projects with metrics
