Please welcome the new spring release of Rider!
Our team has worked hard to make your experience with Rider even smoother and more enjoyable. Download JetBrains Rider 2018.1, or read on for release highlights.
- Roslyn analyzers: in addition to Rider’s own 2400 code inspections to help you detect errors and code smells in all supported languages, Rider now detects Roslyn analyzers and highlights them in the code editor.
- Entity Framework support: enable, add and get migrations, and update database with UI-based Entity Framework 6.x support in .NET Framework projects.
- Deeper integration with Unity: this update takes Unity integration to a whole new level. Now you don’t even have to leave Rider to control Play mode, explore Unity logs, or run Unity-specific tests.
- XAML preview: WPF application developers can now preview UI as they make changes to XAML code.
- Memory view in debugger: Rider allows you to look under the hood of any application and explore the managed heap while debugging.
- Exception pop-up, which shows summary of exceptions that occur while debugging and allows you to quickly navigate through the highlighted stack traces.
- Even more debugger improvements including Smart Step combined with Jump to Statement, symbol server support, Attach UI that contains process info and suggests elevating permissions if necessary, faster attaching to local processes, and more.
- NuGet updates: improved support for authenticating against private NuGet feeds in several ways, and initial support for bulk operations.
- JetBrains redistributable of MSBuild to develop and build full .NET Framework applications without a Visual Studio or Visual Studio Build Tools installation on Windows.

- Changes from ReSharper 2018.1: full understanding of C# 7.2 and improved support for previous C# versions, inspections and quick-fixes for formatting problems.
- More frontend features: support for the latest TypeScript 2.7 features, handy updates for configuring package managers, improved Rename refactoring, better navigation in HTML files, and refined code completion.
