Existing ReSharper users are no doubt already aware that the 4.0 release is now out. If you’ve never used ReSharper and want to check it out, then now would be a good time. The 4.0 release looks to be packed full of new features, as well as providing support for LINQ and C# 3.0 (oh and it does VB as well if you’re into that). This release also fixes a small graphical display bug which I was only getting on my XP64 system around Visual Studio window resizes. Get it here. Tags: ReSharper...
Check it out. Apparently the final release is not too far off, hopefully with some upgrade discounts for existing customers. Tags: ReSharper
While the above configuration probably isn't the most common out there, google provides lists of many other people who have been experiencing rather frustrating issues where Visual Studio 2008 seems to die a horrible death - either when using find and replace functionality, or (randomly) when editing css stylesheets. The latter seems to be a problem with ReSharper users only, however the former issue affects any 64bit XP system running VS2008. It turns out that this crash is the result of a bug in the Wow64 layer of Windows x64 (XP/2003 – it has been fixed in Vista...
ReSharper 2.5.3 is now out, and represents the last 2.5.x release for those of you who aren't planning/able to go to 3.0. There are a fair few fixes, specifically in the area of ASP.NET support. Grab it if you're not planning to move to 3.0.
(3.0 has been fine on my XP machine at home, but I still need to find time to re-test it on my work Vista box, where I was experiencing weird behaviour)
Seeing as I mentioned the ReSharper 3.0 release, I thought I should also mention that I've reverted my main work box (which is running Vista) back to ReSharper 2.5.2. I was having some weird issues around shortcuts not quite sticking, as well as some functionality simply not working (the compilation checking seemed either disabled or incredibly lagged, ctrl-p for parameter info was only working intermittently, and the automatic insertion of using statements wasn't firing either). It was a weird few hours working without full ReSharper functionality - it scared me thinking about how much I missed it. Unfortunately I...
ReSharper 3.0 is now out of beta and available for download. So far I've installed it on both b0xes I develop on, but haven't really used it as yet. I have to confess, there's not a lot in the new release which has wowed me so far - although I'm hoping the XAML support might be useful in the near future. The addition of 'code suggestions' also sounds like something that will be quite welcomed - there were a few situations before where ReSharper would 'warn' you about things which were fairly legitimate. It'll be nice now to receive...
The beta release of ReSharper 3.0 is now available for downloaded. The product now features support for VB.NET (Revisualbasicer?), XAML, as well as additional productivity enhancements.
ReSharper 3.0 Beta expands its versatile support of languages and technologies, providing improved functionality for C#, VB.NET, ASP.NET, XML, XAML, build script editing and integrated unit testing.
In other improvements, ReSharper 3.0 brings much-awaited XML and XAML support. XML features include type completion, various navigation between tags, navigation to referenced types, basic code assistance, and live templates support. XAML features include XML editing in XAML code, all three types of ReSharper's...
I write this post at the risk of sounding like a complete and utter ReSharper fanboy. However I had a great moment while reading C# and the Compilation Tax when I went "Huh?" at a couple of paragraphs:
What's particularly sad about this is that, in my experience, most C# developers think manually compiling all the time is a natural state of affairs. Well, it isn't. In VB.NET we have this clever little technology we call background compilation. Background compilation saves you the effort of all that meaningless, repetitive, mind-numbing manual compilation. It's very simple: as...
CTRL-SHIFT-V. The funny thing about this shortcut, is that it's so close to CTRL-SHIFT-B that I can't believe I haven't hit it accidentally before now while building a solution. Today however, after having used ReSharper for over a year, I did hit it by accident and found out that it's basically ReSharper's version of a clipboard paste which allows you to paste any of the last 20 text items that were copied to the clipboard (from any application) into your current window. ReSharper also provides you with a simple preview window to make sure you're pasting exactly the...
Every developer has their own list of customisations and tweaks which they apply to their IDE to give it that personal touch. This is my personal list of settings and customisations for Visual Studio 2005.
I'm partly writing this down as a reference guide for myself lest I forget - reinstalling Visual Studio is something I try to do as little as possible, and so having a reference list is useful for those moments after a reinstall where you know something doesn't quite feel right in the IDE, but can't remember exactly which setting you've missed! I realise...
ReSharper 2.52 has been released. Although it's only a minor build, there's a nice long list of fixes as well as a change in their evaluation license model:
Another maintenance release of ReSharper is here. The release includes a number of bug fixes and a new evaluation model which needs some explanation (but don’t worry, it will only make things easier for you as an evaluator!).

The main enhancements in 2.5 seems to be performance related, which is always a good thing:
ReSharper for Visual Studio 2005 provides performance improvements in all areas, including:
Visual Studio startup time with ReSharper is close to that of Visual Studio without ReSharper
The speed of typing in the editor is greatly improved, including autopopup on Code Completion
More speedups for code formatting, error highlighting, Live Templates, parameter info, and more
However the most useful feature I've found so...
