Release Day: ReSharper 5.1.1; dotCover and dotTrace RCs

Starting today, ReSharper 5.1.1 is available for download, as well as release candidates for dotCover 1.0 and dotTrace 4 Performance.

Important! We have initially published a wrong ReSharper build (5.1.1751.10). If you have downloaded it, please go to the download page and try again: we changed the download link to point to 5.1.1751.8. Sorry for the mistake. Unfortunately sometimes mistakes happen.

ReSharper 5.1.1. This minor release is pure bug and performance fixing here and there, including (but not limited to) the following areas:

  • It introduces a fresh set of performance improvements under Visual Studio 2010, particularly in regard to displaying tooltips and error stripe behavior in intense editing scenarios.
  • It improves stability with Visual Studio 2010 by addressing reports on VS crashes while editing markup pages in web projects and applications, and during structural search and replace (for example, RSRP-188698).
  • It strengthens NUnit support in the test runner in certain ways, specifically by bundling NUnit 2.5.7.

dotTrace 4 Performance RC and dotCover 1.0 RC. We feel both products are ready for release. If you have a different opinion, please report your issues asap to dotTrace or dotCover issue trackers.

One more good thing to note is that with this RC release, we’re announcing dotCover pricing. Here’s how it goes:

  • dotCover licenses will be subscription-based. That means, when you buy a dotCover subscription, you get 1 full year of free upgrades to any new versions. As the first year passes, you have an option to renew your subscription for another year of free upgrades. Even if you don’t renew, you’ll be able to use your current dotCover version without any limitations.
  • A commercial dotCover license will cost $199, and a personal license will be worth $99.
  • Before the New Year 2011, introductory prices for both types of licenses are valid, meaning that a commercial license will be available at $99, and a personal license at $49.

Enjoy the updated .NET pack and ping us if something goes wrong.

    Would still like to see some options for a “package” deal for your .NET tools.

    What’s your vision regarding a package? We’ve been thinking about it but the difficult thing is that dotTrace is probably not the kind of product that companies buy for every developer while ReSharper and dotCover are exactly like this.
    I’d appreciate your thoughts on bundling options.

    @Jura: I would personally like to see a ReSharper + dotCover bundle. Offering a separate bundle of ReSharper + dotCover + dotTrace couldn’t hurt either. There might be less interest for the reasons you’ve stated, but you don’t really lose anything if noone buys it.

    I would second what Mike is suggesting. Our company would be interested in R#+dotCover package at this time.

    @Mike, Oleg,

    Thanks for your feedback.

    We’re not planning to provide any special R#+dotCover bundle pricing at least until dotCover introductory price offering expires (January 1, 2011).
    As soon as it does expire, we’ll consider discounts for the bundle.

    Hi guys,

    great work! Without resharper visual studio would not be usable for people coming from eclipse. Thx!

    By the way can u ship along a visual-studio for eclipse-users (keysettings configuration)? That would be great!

    Thanks for your compliments!
    We’ll think about an Eclipse-compatibility layout but I really can’t commit to anything in this area. First of all, you know that in addition to ReSharper, we’re also developing [IntelliJ IDEA|], don’t you? 🙂 Which kind of explains why we have a IntelliJ IDEA-compatible layout, to bring consistency over the whole stack of JetBrains development tools. Then again, creating and a new layout for Visual Studio is a bit of an effort. Anyway, we’ll think about it.

    Does this fix the bug where it says you can’t use constants in non-static context?


    if( DialogResult.No )
    gives an error

    or saying event handlers can be made static, when it can’t because it’s used in a different partial class file?

    I don’t think so because seems like the bugs are not reported to our issue tracker.
    Please file two different bug reports describing the bugs in detail to
