    After Issue 306, our basic build scripting tools work. With our NAnt-powered framework in place, let’s extend our continuous delivery pipeline with targets that execute unit tests. It’s nice to have a continuous integration system running a debug build in response to every commit, but all success tells you is that the code compiles.
