    I’m currently building a Xamarin app in C# and F# on a mac, and Rider (EAP) is working so well for me right now, seriously impressed here. Loving the zero-latency typing. Great job all involved.

      Thank you, Stuart! We do appreciate your warm feedback. Happy to hear you are satisfied with Rider.

    I must’ve missed an EAP post, what is zero-latency typing?

    • Alexander Kurakin says:

      @Thomas, we haven’t published blog posts for EAP builds, everything about changes in EAP with some details can be found on the EAP page. In case, you are looking for a short explanation what is the zero-latency typing, so, here it is:

      Even for smart typing assists which do long tasks like reformatting code, Rider’s UI won’t be blocked and the code editor stays smooth and responsive. All asynchronous changes from Rider’s backend will be merged in a magical way later when they are complete.

        That will be great – I have found it quite frustrating just how sluggish the code editor can be.

    What about .NET Core 2.2? Is new version of rider Rider going to support debugging for netcoreapp2.2 target?

    • Alexander Kurakin says:

      December 7, 2018

      @thoradrik, .NET Core 2.2 support has not been planned for Rider 2018.3 release, so it is unlikely to happen before 2019.1 release cycle.

    Is commenting on a Pull Request planned for the future?

    Any idea when we can expect support for C# 8 / .Net Core 3.0 Preview?

    PS: Love the parameter hints introduced in the latest version. Makes codebases SO much more readable. Keep up the great work!

      @Marcel, definitely not in Rider 2018.3. We are going to look at it in 2019.1 release cycle.

      • Marcel Bradea says:

        Yup, understood from the 2.2 comment above that it’s not in scope for 2018.3. Was just wondering if Jan/Feb is realistic for a first EAP, or if we should prepare for later.

        Perfectly understand that no one would be holding you to any estimation of this. Cheers!

    That sounds good. I’m particularly happy about “Zero-latency typing”: In Resharper we’ve been waiting for that for a decade or so. So I very much hope that you will apply your new understanding of how to do that to resharper in the near future.

    Any chance we can get some WebForms features in Rider.

    The only one I really need to help work with Legacy apps is when I add control (via code) to the page it adds a .designer.cs file.

    Unless it Rider can already do this?

    Will we get 2018.3 in time for Christmas, so that we can wrap it an put it under the tree? 🙂
