NCover for Team Build?

Are there any plans to extend this great functionality to getting NCover results into TFS as well?

It's being worked on, but it's fairly complex so please be patient :-)

I've managed to mangle the NCover results into MSCoverage's XML format. However it turns out that that isn't the format you need to upload to TFS; you need the original binary format. So it might take a little while... I am still opimisitic though, even if I have to write something to run MSCoverage instead...

Any news about NCover support?

I haven't done anything more on it and probably won't for a while to be honest; I'm currently spending my time on other projects.

Technically there are some major challenges that make it all-but-impossible to get working in TFS2008. I'm hoping to get it working for 2010 but it may take some time since time is something I currently lack :-(

In the end I wimped out, and converted my tests to use MSTest. So far I haven't really had any problems with it, and at least I get my code coverage reports now integrated into the builds. I'm rewriting my tests to use extension methods to do the assertions, so should the need to change back to NUnit or other arise, then I just need to port the extension methods, rather than the tests themselves.
