The dotCover console runner is able to collect coverage information for individual
tests and show it in the generated reports. Currently, only the following test runners
vstest.console.exe. For example:
dotCover.exe dotnet --output=AppCoverageReport.xml --reportType=XML
--IncludePerTestInfo=Method -- test "C:\MyProject\MainTests.csproj"
You can now configure coverage filters in Visual Studio with ReSharper in the same way as in JetBrains Rider.
You can install the dotCover console runner as a
dotnet global tool:
dotnet tool install --global JetBrains.dotCover.GlobalTools --version 2021.1.0
Use it to analyze coverage in your .NET Core projects and unit tests.
dotCover lets you perform coverage analysis of applications targeting .NET 5.
Now, you can refine what projects should be built when a continuous testing session is triggered. This lets you speed up continuous testing sessions. The feature works in both Visual Studio and Rider.
Now, the Unit Tests Coverage window in both Visual Studio and Rider lets you filter coverage results by target framework.
Before 2020.3, methods with outdated coverage info were highlighted only with a marker in the gutter. Now, in Visual Studio, methods with outdated coverage info are also highlighted in the Unit Tests Coverage window.
Now, you can use the Rider’s solution highlight level options to turn code coverage highlighting on and off.

Linux as well. To be more convenient on new platforms, the tool accepts command
arguments in Unix-style syntax. For example, now, both
In addition, the console runner gets two new commands to simplify coverage analysis
of .NET Core and Mono applications and unit tests:
