Visual Assert 1.1 beta and cfix 1.7 released

Slightly delayed, Visual Assert 1.1 beta is now available for download. As announced in a previous post, the most important change in the new version is added suport for the latest version of Visual Studio, Visual Studio 2010.

However, the new version also brings a couple of new features that apply to all versions of Visual Studio. Most importantly, cfix and Visual Assert now expose an API that allows developers to plug in custom event sinks. A custom event sink is implemented as a DLL and receives all events the runtime generates during the execution of a test suite. As such, the API is perfectly suited for implementing custom loggers.

To make this new feature easily usable, the Options dialog (Menu: Tools > Options) has been enhanced appropriately. Moreover, the dialog now includes some further options concerning stack size, current directory adjustment, and VC++ directory registration that have not been exposed previously.

Coming along with the new Visual Assert release, a new cfix release, version 1.7, is now available on Sourceforge.
