ReSharper 2.0 for VS .NET 2005 (EAP)

Just for clarity's sake, the EAP for ReSharper 2.0 for VS .NET 2005 will
start in approximately 2 months (sometime in May) ... And as I've previously
wrote, current ReSharper customers will ugrade to this version, too, for

VS2005's biggest advance tho' IMO is the intellisense
for variable names in scope. Start typing a parameter
within a method body, and VS2k5 will guess what you
want. If it guessed wrong, keep typing. If it guessed
right, hit the next non variable character (parens,
semi-colon, space, etc) to accept.

So the method body of this:

void SaySomething( string messageThatYouTypedInYouSillyMonkey ) {

Is written with these keystrokes: Con.WriteL(me);

A whole lot nicer than the ctrl+space shortcut IMO.
And it's very fast too, with inline intellisense
drop-downs popping up instantaneously.

Doesn't Visual Studio 2003 (and Resharper, too) do this already?

Not as far as I know? I mean the part where you type "me". In VS2k5 you get an intellisense popup that narrows as you keep typing. Hit an auto-complete character and it's done. With Resharper you have to hit ctrl+space as far as I know to get the same sort of thing. Extra keystrokes in Resharper then. Exactly why I prefer Resharper over VS2k5 for code-gen templates, except in the case of auto-complete, VS2k5 has the edge.
