Bundled and working XUnit runner

Hi

We are looking into XUnit as a replacement for NUnit. XUnit seems to be THE replacement of Nunit. Its extensibility features offer things which we are missing in Nunit and which are not going to happen in the Nunit space soon.

Unfortunately XUnit is still not supported by Resharper. Sure, there is a plugin from the xunitcontrib project but this plugin has a lot of bugs. For example: It does not refresh the available xunit tests reliably within the unit test session window. Also, test fixtures marked with the RunWith attribute seem not to get recognized at all.

So my question: Are there any plans to bundle a working XUnit runner with Resharper? This would boost XUnit a lot and make it a real alternative to Nunit. BTW: We are using TeamCity where XUnit already works out of the box.

Hello,

I'm afraid at the moment we're not planning to bundle xUnit runner with ReSharper
in the nearest future. Thank you!
