ReSharper 5.0 Beta available

1 min read


JetBrains has provided developers with an early Christmas present releasing the ReSharper 5.0 Beta on Christmas Eve. It looks there are plenty of new features to take for a test drive.

ReSharper 5.0 Beta introduces a great web development feature set; code analysis extended with call tracking, value tracking, and foreach-to-LINQ transformations; project-level refactorings; and a lot more enjoyable features.

The Beta version will work with both Visual Studio 2010 and Visual Studio 2008, although according to this post from JetBrains there are a number of known issues causing problems with support for Visual Studio 2010 Beta 2.

However, keep in mind that Visual Studio 2010 Beta 2 has a number of known issues that in certain scenarios prevent ReSharper from working well. Don’t worry too much though: it doesn’t mean your Visual Studio crashes every time you press Alt+Enter! JetBrains and Microsoft engineers are aware of the problems and working together to solve them by the time Visual Studio 2010 goes RTM.

Head on over to the What’s New in ReSharper 5.0 Beta page for a download link and more information on the new features.
