Will you fix 2.x before releasing 3?

Hello,

I really like resharper, unfortunately version 2.x has had big problems with performance and memory. I am concerned that you are going to go ahead and release version 3 before fixing these critical issues, and then try and force your very patient user base to pay for an upgrade when all they really want is a version 2.x that works.

I am going to struggle to justify the cost of an upgrade when all the developers around me are increasingly switching resharper off because of all the problems with it.

Regards
Ian

Hello Ian,

Yes, there will be bugfix updates for 2.x.x versions. We plan to release
2.5.2 bugfix update in a week or two.

Hello Ian,

Did you try 2.5.2 EAP builds? They have a number of bugs fixed and are (should
be) pretty stable at this moment.

Sincerely,

Glad to hear you are bring out bug fixes for 2.x
I am using build 2.5.351 currently which I believe is the latest EAP build. The major problem with this build is the memory issue which has been mentioned elsewhere.

I'll keep my eyes on the EAP announcement forum for the next one

Regards
Ian

Ian,
Frankly speaking, you'd better use recent nightly builds, that are available
at

Hi guys,

I tried installing build 2.5 376 from the nightly builds and this seems to work a lot better. No memory issues so far.

Thanks!
Ian
