Release Notes: November 6, 2016

We will be deprecating dotnet-test-xunit once .NET CLI Preview 3 ships. The new Visual Studio runner (2.2 beta 4) supports .NET Core tests from the command line (dotnet test) as well as inside the next release of Visual Studio "15". There will be no more stand-alone .NET Core runner package.

Special Thanks

We wanted to highlight the amazing work that Hugh Bellamy has done recently. The majority of the new features that shipped in Beta 4 were provided by him, and there's more to come. Kudos, Hugh! 2.2 v2 Beta 4
