Rider 2020.2.1


  • We’ve fixed the bug that caused all NuGet packages to be restored unnecessarily before building the project (RIDER-49125).

Unit testing

  • NUnit2 tests are no longer left in an Inconclusive state with System.NullReferenceException (RSRP-480840).
  • The option to run NUnit tests from a specified folder now works correctly (RIDER-49367).
  • The appsettings.json file is read correctly when running xUnit tests (RIDER-49177).
  • The Environment.CurrentDirectory setting for NUnit tests has been set to ‘Test assembly’s folder’ by default.
  • A variety of other requests has been fixed – please refer to this bug tracker query for more information.


  • Resolving INTERNAL_DATA macros and related functions has been improved (RIDER-48368).
  • The behavior of the setting for suppressing errors in shaders has been updated: it now hides all resolve problems (RIDER-49123).
  • We’ve also turned off errors from .shader files in the ‘Errors In Solution’ view.
