NCover Documentation

The custom NAnt build tasks that shipped with NCover 3.0 had many differences and improvements from the NCover 2.1 version. Unfortunately, although the <ncover /> task remained backward compatible, the <ncoverexplorer /> task did not. Moreover, while the <ncover /> task is backward compatible, many of its properties were deprecated. This article will explain some of the common pitfalls and 'gotchas' encountered when upgrading from the NCover 2.1 NAnt tasks to the NCover 3.0 NAnt tasks.
