Following our plan to deliver ReSharper Ultimate updates every 3-4 months, we are today opening an Early Access Program for ReSharper 9.2 and other ReSharper Ultimate tools. Specifically, this EAP encompasses ReSharper 9.2, ReSharper C++ 1.1, dotTrace 6.2, dotCover 3.2, dotMemory 4.4 and dotPeek 1.5.
Below is a quick overview of what this update has to offer today.
ReSharper 9.2 EAP
The initial build of ReSharper 9.2 EAP is mostly about bug fixes in TypeScript support, IntelliSense and C# code analysis.
- TypeScript support has received a respectable bunch of fixes. For example, renaming and moving TypeScript code is now expected to be faster in most cases as search for dynamic references is disabled by default (RSRP-427718, RSRP-432856). In other news, ReSharper now draws the line between user code and included libraries/modules, which should positively impact code analysis, navigation and refactorings in multiple scenarios (RSRP-428775). More bug fixes cover the way how features such as Go to Type Declaration and Generate Missing Members handle TypeScript code. In addition to bug fixing, there’s an ongoing effort to provide final support for TypeScript 1.5, and the initial ReSharper 9.2 EAP build comes with support for TypeScript decorators (RSRP-435162).
- In terms of code analysis, a set of false positives related to PCL usage with .NET Framework 4.5, with or without Xamarin, has been removed (RSRP-394695, RSRP-427743), in addition to several memory usage and performance optimizations (RSRP-437348, RSRP-436891, RSRP-428652). A number of fixes improve code analysis of string interpolation in C# 6 (RSRP-437019), as well as regular expressions (RSRP-440290, RSRP-439698, RSRP-441299).
- Code completion is now properly case-sensitive again (RSRP-428005) and works a lot faster on extension methods (RSRP-434561)
- Another notable set of changes is a usability boost to Go to Usages: a non-modal version of Find Usages. The Go to Usages pop-up now includes context of discovered usages, as well as a progress bar, which is handy when you’re looking at heavily used symbols (RSRP-420796).

ReSharper C++ 1.1 EAP
ReSharper C++ 1.1 EAP is definitely more feature-packed than ReSharper 9.2.
First and foremost, it introduces a unit test runner for Google Test. This lets you invoke tests and test cases contextually from the text editor:
Similar to how the mainline ReSharper supports other unit testing frameworks, you have Unit Test Explorer and Unit Test Sessions tool windows to view, group, filter and run unit tests, as well as to create and manage unit test sessions.
At this point you can’t debug unit tests with ReSharper C++ but expect this to change soon.
In other news, ReSharper C++ 1.1 introduces a new refactoring, Introduce namespace alias, available via its Refactor This menu:
As soon as you invoke the refactoring, it suggests defining a scope that you want to introduce a namespace alias for:
Rounding up a feature set for ReSharper C++ 1.1 is a new hierarchy view called Includes Hierarchy which, quite naturally, helps you visualize and figure out your
Finally, ReSharper C++ 1.1 brings a whole set of bug and performance fixes in numerous subsystems, from code inspections to formatting, from quick-fixes to live templates: here’s the entire list of fixes included in ReSharper C++ 1.1 EAP build 1.
dotTrace 6.2 EAP
dotTrace 6.2 EAP introduces a new Incoming HTTP Requests event in Timeline mode that helps you indicate time intervals where your web application processes incoming HTTP requests. This includes the time between receiving a request by the server and sending a response. When the Incoming HTTP Requests event is selected, the Filters window contains two sub-filters: URL to determine how much time does a request to a particular URL take, and Method to check the distribution of time between requests with particular methods. You are encouraged to provide your feedback on this feature right here on the blog or in comments under feature request DTRC-10192.

dotMemory, dotCover, dotPeek and SDK
EAP builds of dotMemory, dotCover and dotPeek haven’t received any notable updates so far but we expect this to change as the EAP progresses.
ReSharper SDK will be published later, along with one of the upcoming ReSharper EAP builds.
Feel free to download EAP builds and let us know how this update is working for you.
Stay tuned for more EAP builds in coming weeks. Considering that Microsoft has just set Visual Studio 2015 release date to July 20th, we’ll be looking to wrap up this Early Access Program within a month and come up with ReSharper 9.2 RTM in August, as announced earlier.
