Description Eric Maupin 2013-03-03 14:47:22 UTC
With the shipping iOS test framework, all unit tests run on the UI thread. For large projects, this makes the test interface all but unusable. You result to either having to wait a large amount of time to see any progress at all, or having to go into each set of tests and manually run them.

This needs an update to the NUnit version we ship, and currently we have no plans to update it (there are plenty of other testing solutions people are using).
