Double Update from JetBrains on .NET Performance Optimization and Code Coverage

JetBrains releases dotTrace 4.5 Performance and dotCover 1.1: milestone updates for its expanding set of .NET developer productivity tools

June 9, 2011

Prague, Czech Republic, February 24, 2011 — JetBrains, creators of intelligent, productivity-enhancing development tools, today announced a prominent update release of two .NET tools: dotTrace 4.5 Performance, a powerful .NET application performance profiler, and dotCover 1.1, a .NET code coverage plug-in for Visual Studio.

The updates improve on last year’s major releases by adding the most requested functionality. dotTrace 4.5 Performance minimizes the time that .NET developers spend between capturing a performance snapshot of their application and the moment they have a clear picture why their application is underperforming. dotCover 1.1 streamlines collecting and sharing code coverage information via new reporting and integration features, as well as general user experience improvements.

“dotTrace has always been very insightful in terms of analyzing .NET applications for performance bottlenecks,” said Oleg Stepanov, .NET Division Project Lead. “This release makes detecting offending code more straightforward: we’ve made presentation clearer and more task-oriented, and introduced more options to investigate how a particular code entity behaves. In dotCover, we’ve added features that a mature code coverage tool is expected to have, such as extensive reporting and integration with more third-party tools”.

New dotTrace Performance features include:

  • Reworked presentation of profiling results.
  • New options to estimate potential performance gains.
  • Analyzing the performance of a certain class along the lines of its API.

New dotCover features include:

  • Generating code coverage reports as XML, HTML, JSON, and XML for NDepend.
  • Per-solution coverage settings.
  • Code coverage analysis results can be directly requested from a continuous integration server to Visual Studio.
