Follow-up to 3.1?

We're currently still on the 2.5x version of Reshaper where I work, using
Visual Studio 2005.

We're about to upgrade to Visual Studio 2008, which requires that we'll need
to update Resharper.

We've actually lost a lot of Resharper developers who work on ASP.NET and
Website projects, because of performance. It's also my understanding that
the released version of 3.1 still has significant performance problems in
this area which have been fixed (or at least reduced) in the unreleased
nightly builds.

We also plan to go to 4.0 as soon as it's out, due to the fact we'll soon be
using .Net 3.5 framework and C# 3.0 language features.

My questions are this:

  • When is the follow up bug-fix, performance-improved version of the 3.x

series going to be released?

  • If we go ahead and get the licenses for this next 3.x release, the update

to 4.x is free, right?

Really, I have to say that performance in ASP.NET and Website projects, and
LARGER projects in general, is really critical to my fellow developer's
acceptance of this tool. They all loved it for what it did, but over half
ended up having to install it due to frustrations with performance, load
times, etc. This is why I don't even want anyone to look at 3.x until that
web-site parsing bug and the "color coding" performance bug are both fixed.
We have some older machines here, and we're all running Vista, so
performance problems can really stand out.

I would like to be able to get the lapsed resharper developers back on the
horse. And since we're going to VS2008 sometime around the end of this
month, or early next month, getting that enhanced version of 3.x out is
pretty important to me.

Thanks!

I too would like an answer to this. I have been fighting with RS since
we bought it last year. I have been able to use it only a few days out
of the months I've owned it. I mostly work on ASP.NET projects and the
crashes and slowness issues killed me. Even though the support people
have been very nice... I still purchased software that I have been
unable to use! I would really like to know if there will EVER be a
fix??? I tried 4.x also and it has the same problems. I've sent logs
and reports to support but still nothing that fixes my problems. I'm
glad to know that I'm not alone.

Sorry about the double post...

I just want to know if ANYONE else using 3.x is having problems with
ASP.NET projects. I have tried the latest nightly builds too. If it's
my computer.. I would even entertain reinstalling OS and everything just
to get use of RS!

Thanks,
Tony
