June 30, 2011
Prague, Czech Republic, June 30, 2011 — JetBrains®, creators of intelligent, productivity-enhancing development tools, today announced the public availability of ReSharper 6, a new major version of their renowned developer productivity extension for Visual Studio.
However, ReSharper 6 is not only about web development — far from it. The new version introduces decompiling functionality inside Visual Studio; adds VB.NET code analysis; brings multiple new code inspections to prevent hard-to-detect runtime bugs in C# code; extends and streamlines navigation and search; makes available new refactorings and code transformations; and raises the level of XAML and unit testing support.
“We’ve supported three huge web development technologies and made a host of improvements that are relevant to any .NET developer — all in just more than a year. We’re proud of that,” said Ilya Ryzhenkov, ReSharper Product Manager. “Continuing the recent tradition of cutting-edge releases by JetBrains, ReSharper 6 once again sets the bar high for all developer productivity tools around.”
ReSharper 6 highlights include:
- Navigation and search improved with new features and usability enhancements
- Bundled decompiler with the entire range of ReSharper navigation inside
- New refactorings and code transformations, including transforming LINQ to loops
- Multiple new code inspections and quick-fixes for C#
- Auto-importing namespaces on pasting code
