Version 5 performance issues and upgrading to version 6

I noticed in a response to a previous post that memory and performance issues are being fixed in version 6, and you recommended downloading the latest nightly build to get the latest fixes.

What about version five owners?

Why should I pay for an upgrade just to get bug fixes? I have only been a Resharper user for less than a year, and it doesn't sit well with me to be forced to pay for an upgrade just to get bug fixes.

I paid for a working version of software, and the performance issues with version 5 are painful at best. I wouldn't mind upgrading to version six if there were a compelling reason to do so, other than getting the latest bug fixes.

Forcing me to upgrade to get better performance just seems like blackmail.

I went ahead and downloaded v. 6 just to see what improvements have been made.

For straight C# coding, it seems to be a bit faster. However, for Javascript and HTML (MVC Views using the Razor engine), the editor still slows down to a crawl sometimes.

Get's really frustrating when you're coding and you have to wait on your editor to catch up with you...

Other than the negative performance issues, I really love this product.

Hello Charles,

Most of ReSharper 6 performance improvements are due to major architectural
changes and it is nearly impossible for us to introduce the same changes
into ReSharper 5. If there's a particular performance problem that prevents
you from using ReSharper, for sure we would really like to know more about
it and we would do our best to fix it. Could you please elaborate more on
your configuration (hardware configuration, the size of your solution) and
on the delays you're experiencing while entering code? Thank you!

I've attached a report detailing my system configuration.

The projects that I work on are just average web-based applications, a mix of MVC and Web Forms.

Using version 5, the editor sometimes slows to a crawl, where I can type a character and wait for a second or more for the character to show up on the screen. Cursoring up or down is even worse - I can up-arrow or down-arrow and literally nothing will happen for a couple of seconds, then the cursor will jump, then wait, then jump again, and so forth.

Using version 6, the system seems a little faster, except when editing javascript. Unfortunately, we use a lot of javascript. I'm thinking there must be a memory leak or something, because the problem gets worse as the day goes on.

Cheers

Unfortunately, I am still experiencing performance issues, even with version six. It seems to happen mainly when I am working a lot in Javascript files (which is happening more and more as we move to MVC).

After working for a half hour or so, the editor starts slowing down so much that it becomes a major frustration. When I have to wait on my editor for several seconds after typing or scrolling, it becomes unusable. I restart VS and things are better for awhile.

I'm seeing the same performance issue with version 6. I would have waited on upgrading if I new the performance was going to be this bad. We really need a fix for this...
