dotCover 2.5 Released: Hot Spots and ReSharper 8 Integration

Posted on by Daria Dovzhikova

We are excited to announce the long-awaited release of dotCover 2.5! You can now finally download dotCover 2.5.

dotCover 2.5

Here’s a list of what’s new in this version:

  • dotCover now integrates with ReSharper 8. If you prefer using ReSharper’s unit test runner, you should upgrade to dotCover 2.5 to be able to analyze unit test coverage.
  • This version introduces the Hot Spots view that helps identify the most risky methods in your solution, in terms of high cyclomatic complexity and low unit test coverage.
    Watch the following video by Maarten Balliauw to learn more about this new feature:
  • As a result of major internal improvements dotCover’s memory consumption has been significantly decreased.
  • Last but not least, starting from v2.5 dotCover lets you merge coverage snapshots even if different filters were applied to them.

Feel free to download and try the latest dotCover 2.5.

By the way, in order to help you quickly start getting the benefits of using dotCover, we have prepared a set of screencasts describing the product’s main usage scenarios. Check them out!

    Cool. So when exactly is the “NCrunch killer” DotCover 3 coming? 😉 Some spokeswoman of yours tweeted this summer.. I know it’s harder work than you expected, but is it still coming this year?

    It’s difficult to tell the exact date now, but we really hope to make it by the end of the year. Branch coverage and continious testing are the major areas of development roadmap at the moment.

    Anybody having problems with wrong coverage numbers on this release?

    Our test coverage statistics has gone crazy after we updated to this version… classes that are 100% covered appear as 13% or so. The funny part is that this only happens when running a whole solution coverage… running individual test fixtures results in 100% coverage in the class being tests.

    We’ve migrated to VS2013 and eagerly waiting for version 2.6 to be out. Any estimate of when the EAP might start?

    We hope to open the EAP for 2.6 in about two weeks.
