Announcing the R3 2021 release of our mocking framework, Telerik JustMock.
The R3 2021 release of our mocking framework, Telerik JustMock, includes new support for Linux, support for the new 64-bit version of Visual Studio 2022, support for .NET 6 RC1, enhanced notifications in the Debug Window and reworked Getting Started articles. Let’s look at the details.
I am happy to announce that, after a summer full of challenges to overcome differences between the Windows and Linux versions of the CLR, JustMock officially now supports Linux. JustMock becoming cross-platform is a great milestone that will allow our customers to use their unit test suites not only for Windows.
Microsoft decided to release this year a new version of Visual Studio. Visual Studio 2022 will be a 64-bit application and will no longer be limited to using memory in the main process devenv.exe. Microsoft promises that we will no longer run out of memory when working with big and complex solutions.
With such an opening statement for the long-awaited 64-bit version, JustMock had to support it as we wouldn’t want to be a bottleneck for you to take advantage of all the benefits of the latest version of VS.
Microsoft is working hard on .NET and already shipped the first release candidate of .NET 6. We’ve made a promise to support all new versions of .NET and are delivering on that promise. JustMock now supports .NET 6 RC1.
With R3 2021, we continue to improve the DebugWindow and add more features to it. Until now, while debugging your unit test, you could miss that a new invocation has occurred of your arrangement when the Argument Matcher tab is selected. Such an event is not wanted, as the solution is typically to restart the unit test, select the Invocations tab and wait for the invocation to occur.
With R3 2021, we’ve added visual notification to the Invocations tab. In addition to that, when you select the Invocations tab, all-new invocations will be highlighted and make it easier for you to notice them.
We heard your voice from the JustMock product survey and began with the improvement of the documentation. The first on the radar was the Getting Started articles, as they are key to every newcomer understanding more clearly what the product does and how it can help users isolate unit tests from all dependencies. We will continue reworking and improving the rest of the documentation articles during the following releases, so stay tuned.
The R3 2021 release is already available for download in customers’ accounts. If you are new to Telerik JustMock, you can learn more about it via the product page. It comes with a 30-day free trial, giving you some time to explore the capabilities of JustMock.
To see the new release in action, please join us on the Telerik R3 2021 webinar, on Thursday, September 30, 2021, at 11:00 am ET when our developer advocates will dive into your favorite Telerik productivity features.
In addition, we have two .NET Twitch sessions planned, which will both cover our mocking tools in addition to embedded reporting and automated testing.
