Visual Assert Beta 3 released

A third beta release of Visual Assert is now available for download on www.visualassert.com.

Visual Assert, in case you have not tried it yet, is an Add-In for Visual Studio that adds unit testing capabilities to the Visual C++ IDE: Based on the cfix unit testing framework, Visual Assert allows unit tests to be written, run, and debugged from within the IDE. Pretty much like Junit/Eclipse, TestDriven.Net or MSTest, but for real, native code — code written in C or C++.

Bugs, bugs, bugs, bugs

Alas, there were still a few of them in the previous two beta releases. Luckily though, almost all I received from users or found by internal testing were relatively minor in nature. Still, I want Visual Assert to be as high quality as possible and decided to add this third beta release into the schedule and take the time to focus on — you guessed it — bugfixing, bugfixing, bugfixing, and bugfixing.

Speaking of bug reports, I have to thank all users of Visual Assert and cfix who reported bugs, suggested new features or provided general feedback. Your input has been, and still is highly appreciated. Although I had to postpone any feature suggestions to a later release, I tried hard to resolve all bugs and have them fixed in this new release.

Download, Try it, Share Your Opinion

Of course, using the new Beta version is free. So whether you have already used the previous beta or not, whether you are a unit testing newbie or write unit tests on a daily basis, be sure to give the new version a try. And of course, do not forget to let me know about your feedback, suggestions, found bugs, etc.!
