Expected Release Date

Is there an expected release date for resharper 4.0? I'm not asking for an exact day, but a month or quarter would be nice.

Thanks!

Is this normal? I mean the lack of acknowledgment from the resharper team. I am currently in the process of converting a large (hundreds of developers) shop from java to c#. Since visual studio does not provide the necessary support to make my developers productive(things that are default in java ide's) I am looking into add-ons for visual studio. Resharper is one of my options. We are going to move to C# 3.0 so I am not interested in resharper 3.1.

Based on the general lack of response to comments in this forum and lack of a proposed release date I am having a hard time justifying the potential purchase of resharper licenses. I am somewhat disappointed with the lack of "community".

You don't need to purchase a license at all until R# 4 is released. During EAP the trial will continually be extended as long as you install new builds every so often (JetBrains team won't say which builds extend the license).

Our whole team has moved to R#4 and except for a few builds that caused some trouble have been having good results and we don't have 3.0/4.0 licenses (most of us have 2.x licenses which don't work with 3.0/4.0). We've tried some competitors and R# is much better, so in my opinion it's better to use the EAP now and then you can make a final decision when it's released.

I'll warn you though, once you get used to programming with ReSharper, it'll be very difficult to go without it. :)

HTH,

Sam

That was the point of my original question. I need to put a budget in place to pay for these licenses. Do I need to do this a month from now, a year from now? I can't go to my CTO with this proposal without realistic expectations being set. The lack of response to questions in general on this forum does not inspire confidence.

Don't worry about the community or the product itself. The fact that you
don't see that many posts about R# 4 is (in my opinion) because the latest
night releases are of a good quality. I remember at the beginning of the EAP
4 the forum was full of posts about problems. It is not such a big problem
any more. I am now using EAP 4 for my everyday development. The only thing
that might sucks is the fact that you have to reinstall after every 30 days
(especially if you have hundreds of devs).

PS: Even with C# 3.0 I see R# 3.1 as a VERY good and usefull tool. I can't
imagine working without ReSharper.

Just buy your 3.1 licenses now. They'll all work with 4.0 when it's
released.

End of problem.

Hello,
