ReSharper 5.0: Intro

Did you miss us?!

We’ve got some good news for you .NET junkies!

ReSharper 5.0 is getting ready for some publicity. We’ve already started providing internal 5.0 builds to our beloved JetBrains Academy experts for some initial feedback. Next step: make builds mature enough to open public EAP, and we’re looking to get that far before end of month.

You can also expect us to post a public R# 5.0 Roadmap shortly. Meanwhile, here are the four major areas that ReSharper 5.0 focuses on:

  1. Web Development. Web developers have long been asking for top-class support, so we’re starting to deliver on the promise with a pack of features for HTML, ASP.NET, and ASP.NET MVC.
  2. Project and Team. This is a valuable addition for developers having to explore much unfamiliar code and/or perform batch modifications in large-scale projects. With access to and navigation within external sources, structured patterns for searching and customizing code, and location/namespace synchronization tools working in batch mode, you can handle your colossal solutions easier.
  3. Code Analysis. In addition to fresh code inspections, ReSharper 5.0 presents multiple functional style “enumeration to LINQ” transformations, accepts warnings and suggestions into the “Errors in Solution” tool window, and introduces two major features to track what’s going on with your calls and data throughout application execution.
  4. Visual Studio 2010 and Tools. We’re on the run to support Visual Studio 2010 earlier than ever. More info on that when VS2010 Beta2 comes out. Of course, Visual Studio 2008 is supported as well.

Last but not least, we have prepared a number of introductory, feature-specific blog posts for you to feel the flavor of the new version. Stay tuned!

    This is great news! I can’t wait. I’m hoping delegating members will include an option to include the extension methods of the wrapped object.

    Sweet llama in pyjama! I’m looking forward to any new R# releases and any new cool features you’re “inventing”. But… what about performance and memory footprint? Unfortunately they are still critical problem areas in R#…

    Adam, this is not planned for ReSharper 5. If you can submit request to our issue tracker, we will consider it for future versions.

  6. Joe White says:

    Any chance of 5.0 fixing the problems with the “Color Color” pattern (property with the same name as its type)?

    hope you will take an eye on performance an Visual Basic functionality too. Performance on VB in 4.5 could be better and there are a lot small issues which don’t work correct (e.g formatting on code cleanup, trouble with spaces and tabs when applying live templates or generate properties…)

    hope you take an eye on performance and VB functionality too. Performance is a little bit poor on large VB files. Also there are some things which don’t work correct in VB (e.g. formatting on code cleanup, mixing tabs and spaces when generating properties or insert live templates).

    I have been using resharper since version 1, and saw performance and stability get worse with each release. I completely stopped using it at version 4.5, because in spite of promises to work on performance it was still terrible. Now a new version 5 with more and more features to bog the IDE down. Too bad the emphasis is so strongly on new features and not on making existing features stable. I won’t be using version 5. I miss Resharper, but will probably never use it again. Thanks, Jetbrains.

    R# 4.5 ran fast on every machine I’ve used it on. Maybe it’s time to upgrade that 486, Mark.

  14. CSharpDev says:

    Trevor, I agree completely that if you have a top of the line 64-bit machine with at least 6Gb of ram, the response from Resharper is acceptable on small projects. Unfortunately, not everybody is working on tiny projects or has the luxury of getting their IT department to buy brand new computers every year.
