Rider 2022.1 Early Access Program Is Open
Our EAP for Rider 2022.1 is now available! Download the first EAP build and try it out.
Let’s have a look at what’s inside.
Unreal Engine Support
The Rider 2022.1 EAP comes with profound Unreal Engine support on all three of the major platforms! It all started in 2020, when we launched a preview of Rider for Unreal Engine as a separate IDE build. To enter the preview, users had to sign up by filling out a form on our website. Now you can try it out in the regular Rider EAP builds, and the official release of Unreal Engine support in Rider will follow later this year. This will make Rider a stellar prospect for game developers in general. Sound like great news? You can find more details in this blog post.
For the 2022.1 version, we decided to take a different approach and mostly address quality and performance issues and fix bugs. Of course, we’re continuing to work on the features that we’ve already introduced, like the new toolbar and debugger improvements, as well as bringing Remote Development support to Rider.
Here are some of the improvements that we’ve made already:
- Updates for Unity support:
- We’ve added a new run configuration to run Unity tests in batch mode (RIDER-70675).
- We’ve made the Find Usages window in Unity Editor expanded by default.
- We’ve fixed an issue with the
Advanced Unity integration is unavailablenotification that was shown, even though the Rider editor was already set as the external script editor in Unity (RIDER-73086).
- We’ve fixed the exception that appeared when showing the Quick Doc tooltip.
- We’ve fixed the
Generate new classaction (RIDER-3876). It was disabled in the Solution Explorer because its functionality is already covered by the
- There are some minor
XAML Previewfixes, such as proper whitespace processing in whitespace-significant collections (RIDER-72300), and correct processing of resource dictionaries with the
Resourcebuild action (RIDER-72191).
