Is R# 9 an epic fail?

I have received a new serial key for the new R# 9 yesterday.

Nothing is working correct now:
1) IntelliSense - doesn't work, it is initialized by unrelated items
2) Code inspection - doesn't work, time to time it marks all my code by errors
3) Code navigation - doesn't work, two methods of one interface, one processed correctly the other is not processed correctly

And lot of the other unuseful issues.

Today is a worst day of the year!

Такое впечатление, что на качество при выпуске не смотрели, гнались за деньгами за апдейты?

I'm also having problems with R# 9. But in my case, I'm using VS 2015 CPT 5

ReSharper marks my code with errors. Definitely, there's a problem there. The code compiles an executes perfectly.

FWIW my issues I had with RS 9 that I did not experience with RS 7.1 are so far:
1. Code style cleanup needs manual migration (with manual copy of xml comments etc.), this is not mentioned at all during setup.
2. I have had some general issues with code style/formatting settings when going from RS 7.1 => RS 9 that didn't seem to be migrated (I had to recheck them in RS 9).
3. The "use of var" code style has changed significantly from RS 7.1, RS 9 breaks the earlier code style of always having "var" in foreach but in rest of places use it only when type is evident ( )
4. Shortcut for "Inspect Hiearchy" broken in RS 9 (only displays Window)
5. Dialog handling seems to be fragile in some areas ( ), only happened once so far though.
6. "Check for updates" is now a very heavy operation, it performs a large download and you have to avoid focusing vstudio meanwhile otherwise it just stops without telling the result.
7. Seems to have memory leaks, when I work with vstudio throughout the day it steadily increases up to 2GB+ usage, disabling RS I see no such memory increase at all (staying at ~700MB) but OTOH working without RS is a real pain (I have "analyze errors in solution" disabled).
8. Using live templates is a lot slower. Previously I could write "todo"+tab=>start writing, if I had a "todo" template. Now I need to write "todo" => wait seconds for live template to show at all => select the "todo" via arrow down and hit tab to select it => wait until cursor becomes available => start wrtiting. If I am too fast in RS 9 it will navigate me to all kinds of weird places in code and when I type I will change that file instead. Very annoying especially since changing the other file may trigger continuous test runner and then I have to revert change triggering it yet again etc.

8. Noticed that this is not limited to live templates, it is slow generally when editing it seems so if I e.g. type annotation attributes in MVC projects and hitting home/backspace/type characters while RS 9 is processing RS does weird things like navigating to all kinds of files where my typing ends up in.

I'm also having problems with MSTest.

Before VS 2015 CTP 5, they ran just right. Now, with CTP 5 + ReSharper, tests don't run at all!
