Today at the Microsoft Visual Studio Launch event in Las Vegas, JetBrains announced the general availability of ReSharper 5.0, the latest version of its productivity tool for .NET developers. In sync with the release of VS 2010, ReSharper 5.0 adds full support for the Visual Studio 2010 IDE, for the new language features brought by C# 4.0 and VB.NET 10, and for ASP.NET MVC 2.0. Other key productivity improvements are an extensive toolset for web development, new features to support working with large projects, and code analysis enhancements.
"As Visual Studio 2010 is quickly securing its position as the foremost .NET IDE, we're making sure ReSharper is there with it all the way," said Oleg Stepanov, ReSharper project lead. "We've got ready-to-use support for new language features, a new and improved suite of capabilities for web development, and many code editor updates you are looking forward to–or already using–in Visual Studio 2010."
Here's a more detailed list of the improvements in ReSharper 5.0:
- Web development: Significant extension of the toolset available to ASP.NET and ASP.NET MVC developers, including code inspections, navigation and code generation tools, and highlighting
- Project maintenance: Teams working with large, complicated projects can now more easily view, change, and maintain project structure.
- Support for Visual Studio 2010
- Code analysis: Includes many new code inspections and tools that help track sources of erratic application behavior and adopt best coding practices
"Microsoft is pleased that JetBrains, a Visual Studio Industry Partner, has invested early in supporting Visual Studio 2010 and our next-generation application development platform, and is today simultaneously shipping ReSharper 5.0," said Dave Mendlen, senior director of Developer Marketing at Microsoft. "ReSharper 5.0 helps customers simplify their development process from design to deployment when using Microsoft products, particularly Visual Studio 2010 and .NET Framework 4."
