nicely summarises in the new NCover blog his
thoughts and rationale behind the decision to transition to a commercialised product.
We've been talking about the combined possibilities for a little while now until the timing came right for Peter to make it all happen and start the Gnoso team.
For my part, I'm excited at what this means for the future of both products.
team have a long list of ideas and enhancements to really drive NCover forward and enhance it's existing reputation as the leading tool for .NET code coverage analysis.
This opens up even more possibilities for new features for the NCoverExplorer tools to further improve their ability to deliver quality information to developers.
Most importantly, the new business model Peter
has put in place offers the necessary resources to make it happen.

I appreciate however there are scenarios for people where they do want coverage of services for integration testing etc - all I can say for now is that Peter
is on the case.
major rewrite of the profiler core and the addition of an integration test suite sets up a great platform for future releases.
I've been fortunate to be able to chip in here and there on this release, although arguably more nuisance than help at times to Peter I'm sure!
I am highly optimistic however that this is the most solid NCover beta to date and was worth the wait to get it right.
Top stuff Peter
and many thanks for all the effort!
