    I’m not happy about new git window. It really makes me annoyed.
    Please get back the git view without checkboxes.

      I agree on Max point, the new git window is not consistent with other JetBrain IDEs, I’m not sure why it get changed in Rider?

      If we can get back the old git view that will be great.

    Hi there, is the Entity Framework tooling updated to work with .NET Core 3.0 yet?

    Here is a thread which actually makes integrating this in Rider urgent, since the command-line tools no longer work on .NET Core 3.0 so it is currently RELIANT on IDE integration for it to work. (

    Visual Studio has this implemented already but we’re on Mac/Rider exclusively, so it’s currently a blocker from moving over to .NET Core 3.0 – which itself has been a blocker for moving to Mac/Rider completely (we still run Windows VMs to be able to work on ANY changes to our models/DB)

    Thanks guys!

    It’s great to see a new version. I’ve been testing 2019.2.2 for the last week and seems to work. No problem with new git screens but was confusing the first time.
    What seems really annoying it’s that the editor freezes too often. Even hitting tab key to increase space produce a notice that Rider is doing something and will do it once it finish. (I can’t remember the exact message). I think that its related to a couple of things. My computer is a windows 7 with 8gb ram and a little bit old cpu. The second reason might be that Rider is inspecting my code and this is awesome in the way helps writing better code but in the other hand, going so deep in inspections make it so slow that I will change the IDE. ( I won’t change my computer right now).
    Even though, I love Rider and I will use it in the future once this freezing stops bothering me.

    Hi ,

    I have updated to 2019.2.2 for mac, but when I open, IDE displays a blank screen. I am not able to see any tool windows (Project Explorer, Terminal etc… including toolbar) I cannot even get them by selecting from Tools Menu. Apart from tool windows, I am not able to open any file by selecting double shift (quick open). This has happened with me for Datagrip too a month back. So I had to reinstall older one. Is there some problem with machine?

      I tried, Invalidating Cache, reset settings, and re-installing 2019.2.2. Nothing works… I think I’ll stick to 2019.1.

    we are developing Windows Forms .NET Framework Applications using VB (Visual Basic). The Windows Forms Editor only seems to work for C# projects. Why?
