Release Notes for Analyzers: August 1, 2022

Hello, 1.0.0!

Today we're shipping the first full release of the Analyzers package at 1.0.0!

The first commit to the analyzers project happened almost exactly 6 years ago on August 31, 2016. Marcin Dobosz was working at CenturyLink Cloud with Jim & Brad. His goal was to help developers identify the most common issues found when writing tests with, using his coworkers as the guinea pigs. 😄

The first official release was 0.1.0, which shipped the following May alongside the 2.3 Beta 2 release. This included 15 analyzers for test authors related to non-assertion usage by test authors (things like ensuring the correct number of parameters in [InlineData()] usage) and 5 analyzers for test authors related to assertion usage (things like ensuring that you are passing the expected and actual values in the correct order).

In the intervening time between that first release and today, there were ten more public releases in the 0.x version system, usually aligned with beta or RTM releases of the core framework.

With today's official 1.0 release, we now offer 28 non-assertion analyzers and 19 assertion analyzers, plus an entirely new category: 2 analyzers designed for developers who are writing extensions to the core framework.
