As you may have already heard, the Early Access Program for ReSharper with C++ support is in progress.
We’ve prepared a new build and wanted to share a quick update on what new features and options it brings to the table:
- Better performance: indexes are now saved locally, meaning that subsequent launches are faster than the initial launch.
- Improved code completion including smart completion.
- More settings to customize code formatting style.
- New control flow analyses that detect unreachable code, unitialized local variable, assigned value that is never used, and redundant ‘else’ keyword.
- New quick-fixes including Create from usage for global variables, class and enum members.

Please note that there are still limitations in terms of supported project size (up to 40 MB), MS C++ extensions and MS preprocessor extensions. ReSharper C++ EAP page contains a full list of known issues and unsupported items, which you’re highly encouraged to examine before you decide to download and install an EAP build.
