Double .NET Release − Double the Pleasure!
Wednesday was another double-whammy day for JetBrains. The second major release of our intelligent .NETprofiler − dotTrace 2.0 − is now available. The other good news for .NET developers is JetBrains ReSharper UnitRun 1.0 − a small but powerful unit testing tool for Visual Studio.
What’s even better, each of these products comes with a sweet deal:
- Buy the .NET Productivity Pack: ReSharper 2.0 + dotTrace 2.0 before December 15 and save $99!
- ReSharper UnitRun for FREE!
Here’s a quick overview of our newly released software.
Memory profiling tops the list of new features in dotTrace 2.0. Now you can see what happens with the memory used by your .NET applications, including garbage objects, allocation callstacks, live, new, and dead memory objects (in memory difference mode), held and reachable objects, and much more.
Other enhancements include:
- Integration with Visual Studio. Developers can now run dotTrace from the Visual Studio IDE and easily navigate to source files in their solution.
- Multiple snapshots of the same application as it is profiled. Several snapshots can be opened at the same time to compare and contrast them.
- Performance snapshot comparison. This automatic comparison tool makes it easier to compare function timings – particularly useful to do before and after an optimization.
- Windows services can now be profiled in the same way as web applications.
- And much more – see the complete What’s new list.
ReSharper UnitRun 1.0
UnitRun is a free tool that delivers ReSharper’s unit test runner functionality as a separate add-in for Visual Studio .NET 2005.
You can now automatically run, debug and profile unit tests right from the code editor or from Visual Studio’s Solution Explorer. The dedicated Unit Test Runner window lets you analyze test results, run or rerun any tests, and navigate from a failed test’s output directly to the code line that originated the exception.
Results are displayed in the Unit Test Tree View, which contains an overview of all tests in the build together with icons to indicate the state of each test. From this view you can start running, debugging or profiling tests. Two additional tabs in the Test Tree View allow filtering of the results to show only failed or ignored tests.
Oh, and when UnitRun is installed, you can also start profiling unit tests right from the code editor.
Note for ReSharper Users: If you use ReSharper, you don’t need UnitRun – it’s already in there!

Accelerating Your Testing Workflow with Unit Test Creation and Navigation
Unit tests play an important role in our daily development workflow. They help us ensure our codebase's correctness when writing new functionality or performing refactorings to improve readability and maintainability. In the process, we often create new test files that accompany the p…
Introducing Predictive Debugging: A Game-Changing Look into the Future
With the introduction of debugging tools, software developers were empowered to interactively investigate the control flow of software programs to find bugs in live environments. At JetBrains, we've always strived to improve the art of debugging. Besides the more standard things you expect from a de…
