What's next for csUnit?

Now, that csUnit 2.1.2 has been released the question is certainly what is next for the tool. Here is my take. I think that one of the next items will be a simple first version of parameterized tests. We have looked at what other xUnit based testing frameworks offer, and there are a lot of very good ideas out there. The way csUnit will support it will certainly be inspired by what is already there. However, we also believe that in some cases the available implementations have shortcomings. Some unit testing frameworks don't offer parameterization at all. Others offer it, but are somewhat limited with regards to where the parameter values can come from. It would not surprise us if you had some thoughts on this as well. Please share them by posting on the "Open Discussion Forum" on SourceForge, or by sending an email to manfred at csunit dot org. Thanks!
