Is there going to be an "official" 6.1 release?

I'm not too fond of installing Pre-Release versions, especially with big warnings that it could destroy my development environment.  Sooo, with that said -- any word on when there will be an "official" 6.1 update?

Thanks, Rob.

have no fear to install EAP versions. Normally they are quite stable and you can assist the Jetbrains team to make their product better. If an EAP build don't meet your need you can deinstall it and install a previous one ore the last release build without problems.

Hello Rob,

We're planning to release ReSharper 6.1 in the first half of December. However,
if there are bugs (or performance problems) which you expect to be fixed
in this release or there's some new functionality (such as settings sharing
or reference optimization) that you're waiting for, we strongly recommend
you to install one of EAP builds and make sure that it satisfies your needs.
Because if it doesn't, we'd better know this before ReSharper 6.1 is released
:) Thank you!

Ok, so it's "safe" to ignore all the WARNINGS you folks post on the EAP?

What's the best approach to installing EAP 6.1

1.  Uninstall exisitng 6.0 and then Install EAP 6.1?
2.  Just upgrade by running EAP 6.1 installer?

Thanks, Rob.

just upgrade is enough. And you have the advantage that your settings are preserved ;)

Klaus and Andrey,

Thanks for the input.  I upgraded to 6.1 EAP but sadly when I started to turn features back on (that I wanted to use) the performance was degraded too much and it still didn't fix some of the issues I had with it (especially the Code Cleanup aspect in VB projects).

I've uninstall ReSharper 6.x and will wait and see what happens to future ReSharper versions.  I work on very large scale Silverlight 4 (soon to be 5) projects using VS 2010 and Blend 4 ... as you know VS 2010 and especially Blend 4 are already RAM restricted to 2GB thread since the IDE's/Designers run in 32bit address space ... so this really puts a stress on my development environment -- adding ReSharper to this environment pretty much brought my PC to it's knees (it's a Quad core 3Ghz PC with 8GB RAM and SSD so it's not a "slow" computer).

Don't get me wrong, ReSharper looks to be a VERY good product, but I think it's trying to achieve too much within the limitations of VS 2010 32bit IDE address space.

I'll certainly wait and see how ReSharper evolves and who knows, maybe we'll all get lucky and Microsoft will produce a native 64bit version of Visual Studio that actually runs it's IDE in a native 64bit address space and supports more than a single CPU core.  Unlikely, but I've got my fingers crossed.

Hello Rob,

Actually there are a lot of things that can lead to poor performance (for
instance an installed antivirus), so it would be great to find out why ReSharper
performs slowly on your machine. Could you please upload some performance
snapshots to ftp://ftp.intellij.net/.uploads/ (you can find the instructions
at http://tinyurl.com/bqfkh34) and describe what you were doing while the
snapshots were being captured? If we'll find a performance problem in these
snapshots, we'll do our best to fix it before v6.1 release. Thank you!
