When can we expect support for JUnit 4?

IDEA needs to be able to figure out, and as soon as possible, how to support JUnit 4. In particular, IDEA needs to figure out that tests need not extend TestCase and that certain annotations (e.g. @Test and @Before) are available.

JUnit 4 support is on the Demetra roadmap. Come to think about it, I've got a couple of spare hours on a plane, so I'll update the JUnit inspections and intentions later today. Don't know if there are any plans for automated migration tools, if not, it would be a pretty trivial plugin for someone to write.

We consider JUnit 4 support a must-have for the Demetra release, but unfortunately
we don't have the resources to implement full JUnit 4 support "as soon as
possible". 1-2 months should be a better estimate for its availability.
