Test Explorer Improvements

The Test Explorer now has significant performance and UI improvements. Visual Studio processes consume less memory and discovering large numbers of tests is faster. The updated UI includes easier filtering, more discoverable commands, and the addition of customizable columns and multi-tiered group by that let the user fine tune what test information is displayed.
