Coming soon: Visual Assert for Visual Studio 2010

Now that Visual Studio 2010 has oficially been released, I keep getting questions about a Visual Studio 2010-enabled version of Visual Assert.

The fact that Visual Studio 2010 is already out, yet there is no Visual Assert version for it is unfortunate. It would have been nice to have Visual Studio 2010 support ready on Visual Studio’s release date, however, that was not possible due to lack of time. Having solved most compatibilty issues though (of which there were many, Visual Studio 2010 is a truly painful release for AddIn developers), I am now confident to be able to offer a first beta by begin of May.

This version will not only add support for Visual Studio 2010, but will also contain a set of other improvements and new features.

    Do you have any plan to make it open source? It shows a error message box when it’s installed non-English version of Visual Studio. Because I can not get any detailed error message, It doesn’t help to know what the problem is.

    Please, make it open source. or make it contribute by limited number of people.. PLZ.. PLZ.. PLZ..

    Not only fix errors, I have a lot of ideas including Google Test compatibility layer…

    I installed it on box that had both VS 2005 and VS 2010 and it showed up in VS 2010 and worked fine (as far as I can tell).
