Why is the testing panel called "Unit Tests"?

Answered

I find it weird that the panel displaying all tests in a solution is called "Unit Tests". What if I have integration tests in my solution? I can still run them in Rider. The panel should be called just "Tests". Is there some actual rationale for the "Unit Tests" name?

Hello Marcin Jahn,

"Unit Tests" name just reflects the most common usage of this functionality.

Most of the natively supported testing frameworks also target the unit testing approach. 

For now, we do not see a solid reason to change the naming.
