In continuing to list changes to SharpDevelop 3, we are going to talk about the code coverage addin in SharpDevelop 3 "Montferrer" in this blog post.

Previously, the addin used NCover for calculating code coverage (this is a metric you gain by writing unit tests). However, recently NCover was turned into a commercial product. Because we only include / support tools that are free to use for anyone (commercial or open source / hobby development), we switched to a different tool - PartCover.

This change happened in rev 2744 on 19th of November last year. The addin has retained its original functionality, however, for end users there is an important change: you no longer need to download and install a separate package (as it was the case with NCover), PartCover is part of the SharpDevelop setup. You are good to go right after installation!
