.NET Tools Early Access Program News Releases ReSharper Platform

Welcome to the ReSharper 2024.1 Early Access Program

Welcome to the Early Access Program of our first release of the year – ReSharper 2024.1!

Before we dive into the updates included in this build, here’s a refresher on what the EAP is all about:

What is an Early Access Program

The Early Access Program (EAP) for JetBrains products gives you and your team free access to pre-release versions of our software, allowing you to evaluate new features, test issues that have been resolved, and provide feedback.

To use products released under our EAP, you do not need a paid IDE subscription. However, you will need a JetBrains Account to use EAP versions of our IDEs and .NET tools. All EAP builds are valid for 30 days from their release date.

Why do we share EAP builds for free?

Simply put – we do this to gather as much feedback on the newest features as possible from as wide an audience as possible. Your active participation in the program is integral to our development process and truly helps shape the products.

You can leave your mark on ReSharper in several ways:

  1. By reporting the bugs. See something that doesn’t work as expected? Say something! You can do it by going to ReSharper | Help | Report a Bug or Submit Feedback or by creating a ticket on our issue tracker.
  2. By submitting exceptions. We get it: Catching an exception can disrupt your workflow, and most people want to make them disappear right away. However, reporting exceptions is essential to the stability of the product. When you report an exception, it sends an immediate signal to the development team that something slipped past our QA and needs our urgent attention.
  3. By leaving comments on the blog. We read every single one and try to get back to you with a response as soon as possible. Feel free to share your feedback and leave any questions or requests there.

At the end of each EAP cycle, we identify and contact the users who have contributed valuable feedback and reported the most bugs to reward them for their impact.

We’d like to take this opportunity to thank the active contributors who helped us deliver a feature-rich 2023.3 release.

The first preview for ReSharper 2024.1 is mainly focused on C++ support.

Here are the key updates:

  • You can now change the type of a parameter to a pointer or vice versa with the Change Signature refactoring and get all usages updated accordingly.
  • Grammar checking is now also available for the documentation comments.
  • We’ve introduced new formatter settings: Break line after goto labels, Indent goto labels, Do not change for empty braces, and arrangement of enumerators.
  • Improvements for the clang-format integration include support for GNU built-in style and the IndentAccessModifiers and DisableFormat format style options.
