April 13, 2010

Prague, Czech Republic, December 08, 2009 — JetBrains®, creators of intelligent, productivity-enhancing tools for software developers, have announced the general availability of ReSharper 5.0, its award-winning productivity tool for .NET Framework development in Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 and earlier versions.

Simultaneously shipped with Visual Studio 2010, ReSharper 5.0 adds full-scale support for the IDE and the latest .NET Framework trends and technologies, including ASP.NET MVC 2.0, C# 4.0, and VB.NET 10. Major productivity improvements include an extensive toolset for web development, new features to support working with large projects, and numerous code analysis enhancements.

“As always, JetBrains is committed to making the latest and greatest productivity support available to all .NET developers,” said Oleg Stepanov, ReSharper project lead. “As Visual Studio 2010 is quickly securing its position as the foremost .NET IDE, we’re making sure ReSharper is there with it all the way. We’ve got ready-to-use support for new language features, a new and improved suite of capabilities for web development, and many code editor updates you are looking forward to — or already using — in Visual Studio 2010.”

ReSharper 5.0 provides the following key features and improvements:

  1. Web Development: A greatly extended toolset available to ASP.NET and ASP.NET MVC developers, including code inspections, navigation and code generation tools, and highlighting.
  2. Project Maintenance: Teams working with large, complicated projects can now view, change and maintain project structure with more ease.
  3. Support for Visual Studio 2010: ReSharper users have never enjoyed support for a state-of-the-art Visual Studio version that early.
  4. Code Analysis: Includes many new code inspections and tools that help track sources of erratic application behavior and adopt best coding practices.

“Microsoft is pleased that JetBrains, a Visual Studio Industry Partner, has invested early in supporting Visual Studio 2010 and our next-generation application development platform, and is today simultaneously shipping ReSharper 5.0,” said Dave Mendlen, senior director of Developer Marketing at Microsoft Corp. “ReSharper 5.0 helps customers simplify their development process from design to deployment when using Microsoft products, particularly Visual Studio 2010 and .NET Framework 4.”
