This might be in wrong place but I would like to suggest C++?

Before I make any comments, I would like to give my gratitude to the Developers of IntelliJ IDEA, ReSharper and all the other IDE. They are marvelous and I will continue to use your product. However, I am a personal developer that develops in mostly 3 languages, Java, C# and C++, I am still learning them and willing to learn other language. Before I purchased IntelliJ Idea, I was a beginner in Java. My code fragment and syntax was a mess and my programming speed was slow. Ever since I started using your product, my programming has become better, I can finish most of my application in less then half, maybe two - third faster then I accomplish. Along with ReSharper, I am able to pick up on C# quickly, thanks to my Java knowledge. However, If ReSharper could have the same effect on C++, that would be FANTASTIC. If standalone, I would definitely use it, disregarding its price and recommend to my fellow programmers.

Thanks in advance

P.S. Sorry if I posted this in the wrong forum.

I am a huge fan of ReSharper and of .NET, but I keep coming back to your site hoping to see "C++ support" added to your list of features, and keep walking away disappointed.  I'm not talking about full-blown refactoring support here.  Please just get into the space... open that door... add more features later as the user base grows and guides.  There are a lot of us that use C# AND C++ frequently, and currently the best solution I've found is to resort to using another addin product (Visual Assist X) for C++ work, just to get basic jump-to-symbol-definition (Ctrl+B), jump-to-inheritors/overrides (Ctrl+Alt+B), class-lookup-by-name (Ctrl+N), find usages functionality (Alt+F7), parameter details (Ctrl+P).  Other quickies that would go a long way: create a method (Ctrl+Alt+M), create a variable (Ctrl+Alt+V), create a parameter (Ctrl+Alt+P).  Also, detecting if there's a method in a derived class whose definition looks really close to a virtual method in a base class but isn't exactly the same and therefore won't actually be overriding anything at runtime (this is a pretty easy source of frustration in a large C++ code base).  I work at a rather sizable software company and I'd love to get others pumped up about your product line there, but most developers use either only C++ or flop between C# and C++.  You need to at least handle basic navigation and compete head to head with Source Insight navigation/search features.  If you'd like to pursue this, I'd be happy to help in any way I can.

     I'm sorry to say this, but we're not planning to support C++ in the foreseeable future. Thank you!

I would also like to see support for c++ - works great with c# but it would be really useful to have the features of ReSharper to use in c++ (vs+wingdb works great for linux development, but still lacks in comparison to what ReSharper brings to .net development).
