If you won’t wait until the new version is linked at you‘ll find it at

Breaking changes:
+ Changing the default value (true) of the allowRowTests configuration setting is not incompatible with older

New features:
+ Step Intellisense for Visual Studio 2010 - displays the list of bound steps when pressing space or ctrl+space
  after a step keyword
  (Thanks to Marcus Hammarberg for the contribution.)

+ Options for Visual Studio 2010 - you can enable/disable the integration features (syntax coloring, outlining, intellisense) in Visual Studio 2010, Tools / Options / SpecFlow / General


+ Faster installation for VS2010 - if you install SpecFlow only to VS2010, the installation is much faster as we now entirely using the new VSIX infrastructure for the integration.


+ Support for row test generation (NUnit, MbUnit and xUnit). This new feature is enabled by default, but can be switched off from the configuration with <generator allowRowTests="false" />.
