ReSharper 3.0 EAP now open

Note: Early-Access-Program (EAP) versions are PRE-BETA RELEASES. EAP versions have bugs. EAP versions are not completed software. EAP versions should not be used on production projects.

Our goal in releasing EAP versions to is allow you to view the software as we gradually stabilize and improve it towards final release. Our main motive is to give you an opportunity to give us feedback (which helps us create better software). If you do not like the way something has been implemented, we would highly appreciate your feedback. If you spot a bug or have compatibility problems in your development environment, you’re advised to inform us so we can fix it. One reason why our software excels is because of community participation in its direct development. We hope you’ll participate.

The preliminary roadmap (which will constantly change for the first few weeks) for this latest version of ReSharper can be found at:

ReSharper 3.0 Roadmap:

If you are up to it, and want to take ReSharper 3.0 for a crash-test (no pun intended), you can directly download ReSharper 3.0 at:

Test it out and let us know what you think. The more feedback you give us, the more the product will appeal to YOU.

You can discuss the ReSharper EAP in the ReSharper EAP forum found here:

    Can someone explain why the licensing for Resharper 3.0 has been changed? Will the evaluation period re-start after I install a new eap build? And if not, where do I get a license key for Resharper 3.0?

    Hello Maruis,

    We’ve switched to a no-evaluation-license scheme both for ReSharper 2.5.2 and ReSharper 3.0 EAP.

    The way it works now is that you just download and install a build, and just go ahead and use it. There are no license keys to insert anymore.

    The evaluation lasts 30 days for each EAP build. To answer your question, yes, each EAP build restarts the evaluation period.

    You can also install and use nightly builds, however, they have no evaluation period of their own. With nightly builds, you’re still using the 30-day evaluation from the most recent EAP build you’ve installed.

    I should also mention that an evaluation period starts when you first start using the software. It does not start and expire on pre-specified dates like it used to in previous EAPs.

    I’m going to do a blog post on this topic very soon.

    Please let us know if you have any more questions 🙂

    Cheers, that was all I need to know. Thanx, for also putting up a solution to installing Resharper into Orcas. (

    I am using resharper 2.0. I can’t find anywhere on your website that shows “what’s new” in 2.5, and what the upgrade cost is.

    Is that info available?

    Hello Mitch:

    There is no cost to upgrade from 2.0 to 2.5 — just download the 2.5 installation, and use your current 2.0 license key — it’ll work. You are right, however … the information for “what’s new” in 2.5 isn’t so clear. Mainly performace and usability improvements were added in 2.5, but also some read-only VB.NET support, UI changes, and some other minor features. Nothing big was added … just should work faster than version 2.0, etc…
