The NUnit 2.2.3 release contains two versions of each download: one built with .Net 1.1, one with .Net 2.0. So, what’s the deal? Do we need separate versions? And which version do you need? I’ll try to explain…
So far, only the .msi file is available. It’s built with VS2003 but, as always, will run on .Net 2.0 – including the RTM. The zipped binaries and source will follow in the next few days, depending on how much connectivity I have while I’m travelling.
A version built against .NET 2.0 is in the cards, but we’re still looking at alternative ways to organize the releases.
In an earlier post, I mentioned that I was working on a problem that was suggested by Bill Wake on the TestDrivenDevelopment mailing list.
The idea is that you have a set of magnets with words on them. People put these on their refrigerators and arrange them to form sentences and even poetry. How could we write a program to take a set of magnet positions and content, producing as output the text that they form? Humans put them together quite readily, even though the alignment is not precise. We could do some algorithm development up front, but I think this is an interesting problem for TDD.
I’m writing up the steps I take to solve it as I go along. Poetry Magnets: First Verse is the first installment.
We forget sometimes how easy it is to write tests – even without a framework. I was sitting in a cafe, working on my new laptop. It’s an Acer Ferrari 4000 that I’m very happy with, but I haven’t completely set it up yet.
