MSTestExtensions 4.0.0

An extendible implementation of the Assert class in MSTest.

Allows for extending the Assert methods with the default MSTest methods as a default.

Includes a:
* Throws() method for asserting exceptions.
* ThrowsAsync() method for asserting exceptions for async methods.

INSTRUCTIONS: In your test class, inherit from MsTestExtensions.BaseTest. Type Assert.Throws() or Assert.ThrowsAsync().. that's it! All of the standard Assert. methods from MsTest will still be available.
