As we have recently released ReSharper 9.1.1 and more ReSharper Ultimate updates, you might be wondering what we have in store for the remainder of the year. This is even more important to know considering that Microsoft is expected to reach a couple of major milestones in upcoming months, specifically the final releases of Visual Studio 2015 and Windows 10.
First of all, as you might have noticed from recent releases coming out of JetBrains, we are making a habit of updating ReSharper Ultimate products every 3-4 months.
We want to keep this pace further on, which means that a new update to ReSharper (version 9.2) and other members the ReSharper Ultimate family is expected to release in August 2015.
Let’s see what we expect ReSharper 9.2 is to provide:
- Support for Visual Studio 2015 RTM. That’s right: you don’t have to wait for a new major ReSharper release to enjoy full support for the final bits of Visual Studio 2015: ReSharper 9.2 will bring it to the table.
- Support for Windows 10 universal applications. Windows 10 is set to release in coming months as well, and ReSharper 9.2 will work with Windows 10 universal applications and hopefully provide dedicated coding assistance to help with the adaptive coding pattern that is widely used in Windows 10 application development.
- Solid support for ASP.NET 5 including the new tag helper syntax and getting the unit test runner to cope with DNX.
- More improvements in terms of unit testing, C#6 and ECMAScript 6 support.
Speaking of other products that are part of the ReSharper Ultimate family, a significant point is that the upcoming ReSharper C++ update (1.1) will add an hierarchy view for
include directives, improve support for C++11 and introduce a set of new refactorings.
We expect to open an Early Access Program for ReSharper 9.2, ReSharper C++ 1.1 and other ReSharper Ultimate tools by early July, so stay tuned!
