There were a few sections in the guides that still mentioned the rake tasks to run the tests. I updated them to reference the new rails test command and added some links to the testing guide.

Also while I was at it I reconditioned the references section in the testing guide.

I'm not sure if we should call it Test::Unit specifically, since:

  1. It's now Minitest.
  2. Test classes are inherited from ActiveSupport::TestCase.

@carlosantoniodasilva @rafaelfranca what do you guys think?


I thought rails test was going away, or at least, @tenderlove is shooting for it.

@steveklabnik thanks for the heads-up. As rails test won't be in Rails 4 this PR does not make a lot of sense.
