ReSharper 5.0 Beta Comes Out

Download ReSharper 5.0 Beta while it’s hot!

ReSharper 5.0 introduces a great web development feature set; code analysis extended with call tracking, value tracking, and foreach-to-LINQ transformations; project-level refactorings; and a lot more enjoyable features. You can learn what’s new in greater detail at the ReSharper web site.

ReSharper 5.0 Beta integrates into both Visual Studio 2008 and Visual Studio 2010, so if you’re using Visual Studio 2010 Beta 2 and you’re missing ReSharper goodness, now is a good time to give ReSharper 5 a try.

However, keep in mind that Visual Studio 2010 Beta 2 has a number of known issues that in certain scenarios prevent ReSharper from working well. Don’t worry too much though: it doesn’t mean your Visual Studio crashes every time you press Alt+Enter! JetBrains and Microsoft engineers are aware of the problems and working together to solve them by the time Visual Studio 2010 goes RTM.

By the way, ReSharper in Visual Studio 2010 introduces a pack of special text editor integration features including a new animated error stripe and alpha-blended gray code that lets you see ReSharper highlighting even in code that ReSharper marks as unreachable:

Since this is a beta release, we desperately need your feedback. Please file any bugs that you may encounter to ReSharper issue tracker, and otherwise let us know how you feel using the new ReSharper in your Visual Studio.

Download and enjoy!
