Share your ideas on how Test Cloud can better help you deliver higher quality apps faster.
NUnit 3 adds a load of new features that would be useful to have, so it would be good if UITest could be updated to support NUnit 3 instead of maxing out at 2.6.4.
This is especially important if you want to do a mix of local and cloud testing. NUnit 3 allows more flexibility that would useful in doing both with the same set of tests.
NUnit 3 has been out since November of 2015 and this request has been sitting around for 6 months. It's one of the top ideas here so what's stopping this from moving forward?
I too am interested in what the hold up is. I know NUnit 3 supports async, and TestCloud doesn't play nice with async... is that it?
Hi, everyone. First, I want to thank you for your patience with this issue. Next, I want to give you some context on the delay and provide you with an update.
As you are likely aware, following Xamarin's acquisition to Microsoft, we began work on on integrating and implementing the next generation of our product within Visual Studio Mobile Center. The focus on this (very large!) project has slowed our velocity delivering value to our Xamarin Test Cloud users, which we know is not awesome.
At this time, our best estimate is that we'll have NUnit 3 support rolled out in the next 4-6 weeks. We will keep this ticket updated with new information should that target change. Please feel free to reach out here with any additional comments or questions.
Again, thank you for your patience with the less-than-awesome delay on this item.
Would it be possible to get an update on the status of this? Is 4-6 weeks still the expected timeline?
We are still working toward this target, though are currently behind schedule. I do not have an updated delivery target just yet but will update this ticket once we do.
Do we have a news for this?
hi @Justin Raczak - any updates on this?
Hey :D Just wondering if you can share any news on progress yet?
Just wondering if there are any updates on this?
The latest supported version of NUNIT is almost two years old now. Why can't you figure out how to support it??? If you don't plan to, or you have stopped supporting the product, then please let us know.
NUnit 3.x is really very important since Specflow 2.2.x supports only NUnit 3.x, because Xamarin is not supporting NUnit 3, I have downgraded my specflow to 2.1 which has minimal features. Please support latest version of NUnit
Is there any update on when this is going to be delivered? or any information about when work is planned to begin on this?
Any update on this idea yet?
Hi, any news on this ? ...
We're extensively using specflow. With latest visual studio project structure changes only specflow 2.2.0 works well. It makes almost impossible to use specflow with latest visual studio and Xamarin UI tests.
There are so many features in NUnit 3 I *really* wish I could take advantage of. Please get this done. We are now ~30 weeks past the 4-6 week estimate. >:‑)
App Center (previously Mobile Center) is officially out... here's hoping that freed up some dev cycles to work on this.
I emailed support about this in November and the responses from Gelnn Wester were as follows:
Glenn WesterNOV 01, 2017 | 08:17PM EDTHi Peter,
Thanks for writing in! We're planning on supporting NUnit 3 in the near future although I don't have a date to share right now.
PeterNOV 01, 2017 | 05:47AM EDTHi,
Thanks for your quick response however the request I linked said that it would be 4-6 weeks all the way back in April so when you say near future are we talking, weeks, months or years? Because the request has been open for 14 months and nunit 3.0 final release was November 15th 2015 and nunit 2.6.4 came out in December 16 2014 which means were using an almost 3 year old testing framework
Final Response from Support:
Glenn WesterNOV 21, 2017 | 05:51AM ESTHi Peter,
I understand that the wait has been arduous we don't have a timeline at the moment to communicate. We're working hard to get this support built as quickly as possible with updates pending.
So don't hold your breath folks
I commented on Oct last year and still waiting for the NUnit 3 support, Its NUnit 3.8.x now, please support soon, I don't think Xamarin is taking it serious about it?
Is there a plan to support NUnit 4.x straight away?
It seems shocking that this is still an outstanding issue. App testing is so important and restricting tests to a four year old framework seems crazy
You won't be notified about changes to this idea.
