Version 5.07 contains a number of improvements, thanks to the detailed feedback and interaction with many customers.

  • Now with Visual Studio 2019 support!
  • The number of test projects increased from 12k to 15k.  They must all convert without C# compiler errors before each release.
  • To help manage large project groups there is now the ability to apply filters by project status and Visual Studio version.

In the project group screen, click the View menu, then pick the field to filter by.

Choose the values you want displayed.

You can tell a filter is applied by the filter icon in the column header.
