ReSharper 8.2 is Released Along with dotTrace, dotCover Updates

We are still eager to deliver cross compatible joint releases, that’s why today we prepared a triple update for our .NET tools.

The following builds are already waiting for you to download and try: ReSharper 8.2, dotCover 2.7 and dotTrace Performance 5.5.4.

ReSharper 8.2, dotTrace 5.5.4 and dotCover 2.7

Here’s why these updates can be attractive to you:

ReSharper 8.2

As you might have already heard, lately we’ve been working on improving your TypeScript coding experience with ReSharper. Here’s a quick overview of what we’ve done in this regard:

  • ReSharper 8.2 significantly expands TypeScript support with smart completion, Create From Usage quick fixes and Import Module context action, navigation combos, naming settings, support for generics and compiler defined errors highlighting. For details on these features, please see an earlier post, More TypeScript support in ReSharper 8.2.
  • Jasmine 2.0 support for ReSharper’s unit test runner that works with JavaScript and TypeScript files now.
  • Other enhancements including Quick Documentation fixes (including a fix to an epic bug that could be easily qualified as the best way to hang and crash Visual Studio), a long-awaited fix for the red code problem with Xamarin installed and another 140+ fixes.

Please note that not all ReSharper plugins are ready for 8.2 and if you’re using plugins, you’ll see update notifications from the Extension Manager as new updates become available.

dotCover 2.7 & dotTrace Performance 5.5.4

With this minor update dotCover receives a standalone test runner which can be most useful for running manual tests outside Visual Studio, as well as for analyzing coverage snapshots.

Both dotCover 2.7 and dotTrace Performance 5.5.4 provide integration with the updated ReSharper 8.2.

Please download ReSharper 8.2, dotCover 2.7 and dotTrace Performance 5.5.4.

In terms of license eligibility, here’s a way to check if your licenses will work with these updates:

  • ReSharper 8.2 is a free upgrade for all personal and academic licensees who are eligible for ReSharper 8.0. It’s also a free upgrade with all commercial per-major-version licenses to 8.x, and with commercial subscription-based licenses purchased or renewed on March 21, 2013 or later.
  • dotCover 2.7 is a free upgrade for all licensees who have purchased or renewed their licenses on March 21, 2013 or later.
  • dotTrace Performance 5.5.4 is a free upgrade for all dotTrace Performance 5 licensees.

  6. Steve says:

    What about c++ support? In one of your previous postings you said that it will be released with 8.2. Is there an estimated time Frame for releasing c++ Support?

  7. Alex Angas says:

    Thanks for the release. Are there any plans to go through all of the logged bugs in R# and either fix or close them? I’ve been a user for over 5 years and would really like to see more bugs smashed! If there’s any sort of “Bug Drive”, I’d like to help with that.

    • Daria Dovzhikova says:


      Yes, although we seek to do this on an ongoing basis, there are such plans. If you’d like to help with prioritizing bugs (or there’s anything terribly annoying you) you can always vote for the issue.

  8. JDogg13 says:

    Are you guys planning on having another Earth Day special?

    • Daria Dovzhikova says:


      We don’t have such plans at the moment, and as a rule we don’t announce any offers beforehand as you might have noticed :)

    So does DotCover 2.6 not work with Resharper 8.2? My Resharper license supports 8.2 but my DotCover license (which is older) does not. So to be able to get all the bugfixes in 8.2 and still be able to use DotCover I have to buy a new DotCover license?

    • Daria Dovzhikova says:


      In case your dotCover subscription is still valid you can upgrade for free. If it has already expired, then yes, you will have to renew the subscription to upgrade to v2.7.

      • chris says:

        OK, good to know: if your DotCover license doesn’t cover DotCover 2.7, then don’t install Resharper 8.2 as it will disable DotCover.

    Version 8.2 is very slow!

  12. datta016 says:

    I know this is more of a StyleCop support issue than it is ReSharper, but out of curiosity, has anyone been able to get ReSharper 8.2 and StyleCop to work together?

    • Daria Dovzhikova says:

      You’re right, it’s up to StyleCop to support the new version, as there’s nothing we can do at this point.

  13. Lee Hull says:

    Nope, StyleCop has to be updated first, they have 8.1 dlls referenced so they don’t work with new versions.. :(

    I tried using EAP a few months ago and it didn’t work, hoped they’d have an update before release, but I guess not.

    I’m also waiting for an update.

  15. David Stroem says:

    I get duplicate output when running nunit tests generated by specflow in the resharper 8.2 testrunner.
    Running in 8.1 and NUnit works fine.

  16. Ross Dickinson says:

    Been having a lot of intellisense/error checking issues since updating from 8.1 to 8.2. Getting tons of “ambiguous type reference” error where the two ambiguous types are exactly the same. “Cannot resolve tag” issues in razor views, code errors that appear when I build the current project and not the whole solution(note that none of these errors prevent compilation or any runtime issues for the solution itself).

    • Daria Dovzhikova says:


      Sorry for the inconvenience, we are already aware of this problem and are currently working on fixing it. The fix will be available with the next minor update.

  17. Matt Whetton says:

    Just upgraded from 8.1 to 8.2 and a unit test runner bug has re-emerged whereby the test runner thinks all our WIX installer projects are test projects and reports a “Failed to build required projects” error. This means the ReSharper test runner is unusable.

    Its frustrating because we have had this bug in a previous version, which got fixed – now its back again!

  18. Roger Stewart says:

    In addition to experiencing the “ambiguous type reference” issue, I also see many “Argument type ‘string’ is not assignable to parameter type ‘String'” incorrectly flagged issues.

  19. When will support for StyleCop be available?

  20. In addition to changing severity options and disabling with a comment, for the “Cannot resolve tag ….” error, is it possible to have a custom list of permissible tags. I don’t want to disable the feature altogether, but I also don’t want to have to break out a comment for every time I have a tag not defined in the HTML5 spec. This is particularly common for angular element templates or meteor applications that use the template tag

    Can you please let me know how to export all Resharper rules in excel sheet.

  22. Mehul says:

    How many rules are different between version 8.0 and 8.2?

  23. Mehul says:

    Can anyone provide me URL to download Resharper v8.2 command line utility…
