NUnit 3.6.1

NUnit features a fluent assert syntax, parameterized, generic and theory tests and is user-extensible. This package includes the NUnit 3.0 framework assembly, which is referenced by your tests. You will need to install version 3.0 of the nunit3-console program or a third-party runner that supports NUnit 3.0 in order to execute tests. Runners intended for use with NUnit 2.x will not run 3.0 tests correctly. Supported platforms: - .NET 2.0+ - .NET Standard 1.6 - Windows 8 - Windows Phone 8 (Silverlight) - Universal (Windows Phone 8.1+, Windows 8.1+) - Xamarin (MonoTouch, MonoAndroid, Xamarin iOS Universal) - Portable Libraries (supporting Profile259)
