Is ReSharper 1.5 No Longer Being Maintained

Is ReSharper 1.5 no longer being maintained? There are still quite a few bugs/annoyances that I'd like to see addressed.

Hello Salty,

JetBrains has an Early Access program for ReSharper 2.0 which changes some
behavior and adds a number of valuable new features. If you have a license
for 1.5, it will allow a free upgrade to 2.0. EAP implies the code is not
yet Beta quality, by I and many others use it for production code daily.
Check out the newsgroup at jetbrains.resharper.eap for more information.

You can get the latest build at http://www.jetbrains.net/confluence/display/ReSharper/Download.

Also, take a look at the Tracker (http://www.jetbrains.net/confluence/display/ReSharper/Tracker)
for the bugs and annoyances you want addressed. If they aren't already present,
please add them so we may all benefit!

Yes, you're quite right.
We are not going to do any modifications in ReSharper 1.5 code

What about 1.5 Build 165, which is still referenced as a Release
Candidate
(http://www.jetbrains.net/confluence/display/ReSharper/Download)? The
last official version of 1.5 is build 164
(http://www.jetbrains.com/resharper/download/)

And makes no sense to release any additional updates to 1.5 now when we are
so close to 2.0 release. Anyway you can download the build #165 and use it.

We are not aware about critical issues in ReSharper 1.5 that could be fixed
in 1.5.x version. If you know some bugs/annoyances which you wish to be fixed,
participate in ReSharper 2.0 Early Access Program and give us you feedback.

I as only wondering why build 165 is still stuck as RC and never made it
to an official release.

Here's one...

Right click on Visual Studio from a regular user account and select Run As.
Enter the password for the Administrator account. ReSharper comes up with a
dialog saying that it can't find a valid license, so click OK. Another
dialog then comes up prompting for the license information, but I can't
select this dialog or enter any information into it. The only way to clear
the dialog is to kill DEVENV.EXE from Task Manager, which means I can't run
the administrative tests to finish a project without uninstalling ReSharper.

I've tried downloading ReSharper 2.0 three times over the past few months,
but it always complains that the license is already expired immediately
after installation so I finally gave up

Hello Lothan,

do I understand correctly that the real problem is that the dialog for entering
license information
is broken when you switch to a different account? We've seen a similar problem
several times, it occurred
when the user installed ReSharper just after installing Visual Studio, without
ever previously running
a newly installed VS. Unfortunately, we have no idea how to deal with this
issue yet - the dialog
has normal visual cues as if it were enabled, but doesn't accept any keyboard
input. We've tried
to debug this but to no effect. We suspect that on the first run (may be
on the first run for
the given user account) VS performs some one-time initialization which
badly interferes with this dialog. May be in your case, you never run VS
under the Administrator
account before.

Your analysis is correct. The dialog is presented, but I can't give the
dialog focus or enter any information into the dialog.

We always run our services under specific user accounts in an attempt to
limit the damage potential from hacks and bugs. Our last step before
deploying is to create a user account with minimal privileges and then to
debug the application to discover and document all privileges required by
the service. We usually have a good idea of the privileges required during
the development process, but it's always a good idea to verify that we
haven't missed anything.

I believe a better option would be to allow the user to cancel the first
dialog, so ReSharper does not prompt the user for license information and
perhaps internally disable most of ReSharper's features. Once Visual Studio
comes up completely, I should be able to either continue using Visual Studio
normally without ReSharper or select Register from the ReSharper menu.
Preventing the user from accessing Visual Studio because of a licensing
issue in a plug-in is unacceptable.

Hello Lothan,

surely this is not an intended behavior. This is actually a weird bug. Of
course,
normally the user can Cancel the license dialog, and ReSharper's features
won't work,
the only situation when the problem arises is when the user never runs VS
before installing
ReSharper.

Since you can reproduce this problem reliably, it would be of great help
for us if you
could attach a debugger to the VS when the damaged dialog is shown and capture
the stack trace.
You could then send us (via an attachment to a newsgroup post) the stack
trace and
we'll investigate the problem.

Now this is strange. I tried to reproduce the issue a few minutes ago, but
now the dialog comes up normally and I can enter all information into the
dialog. I have rebooted a couple of times to see if that would have any
effect, and I can't think of anything that I've done differently that would
cause the problem to go away.

Hello Lothan,

As far as we know, the issue appears only on the first run of Visual Studio
by a user. That is, once a user has run Visual Studio for one time the bug
goes away.

Thanks,
Andrey Simanovsky
