ReSharper 5.0 Is Out!

ReSharper 5.0 is finally here, and you can download it right now!

We’ve blogged for a while now about the great new stuff in ReSharper 5.0 (and we’ll continue blogging about it), but here’s a short recap:

  • Web Development: You get an extensive toolset for ASP.NET development to work with markup files and web site infrastructure. ASP.NET MVC developers get a bonus with additional syntax highlighting, inspections, navigation, and completion for actions and controllers.
  • Project and Team: Powerful, shareable structural search and replace patterns to remove code smells or comply with team policies; project-level refactorings; localization assistance; and full support for navigation to library sources — all this to help you and your team easily view, change and maintain the structure of complex projects.
  • Code Analysis: Lots of improvements, from viewing all code smells in your solution from a single tool window to upgrading foreach and for loops to LINQ queries, to value tracking and call tracking.
  • Support for Visual Studio 2010: Yes, we did it! ReSharper 5.0 has sim-shipped with the latest Visual Studio! Did you see it coming in your wildest dreams?
  • Other enhancements relating to IntelliSense, bookmarking, native NUnit support, and more.

What’s New has more details we haven’t yet covered in our blogs.

So, what are you waiting for? Grab ReSharper 5.0 while it’s hot!

When you’ve been convinced, buy ReSharper 5.0 or upgrade. The upgrade is free if your 4.5 license is dated October 15, 2009, or later!

    It may be too hot to handle because it has burned all but the first 2.6KB of the download. When can I expect the download to work?

    I love, love, love Resharper, however…

    I’m using build 5.0.1658.36 with Visual Studio 2008 on Vista 64bit and i’m getting killed by the ASP.NET code analysis. Everytime I make a change to an .aspx file, the code analyzer tells me it can’t find my inherited page class and then kills code analysis in the code-behind file. HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Purchasing an upgrade license doesn’t seem to work. I’ve tried on all sorts of browsers to upgrade my Personal C# 4.x license to Personal C# 5.0, but I always end up with an empty shopping cart.

    Too bad, because I really like the new features in ReSharper.

    Sorry for a late reply. Hope you’ve managed to download the thing. It was really hot at some point. BTW, alternatively you can always download ReSharper from Visual Studio Gallery.

    @Manuel F
    Manuel, if it’s still reproducible, please submit a bug report to our issue tracker, or write an e-mail with steps to reproduce to

    Hold on, I’ll report the empty cart bug.

  5. @Stepan,
    Apparently there was a bug processing a specific sequence of upgrades like yours.
    You can try it again – our CRM system developer reports it should work now.
    Sorry for inadvertently making the upgrade process a pain in your case.
