ReSharper 4.0 coming too late

I think it is quite a disappointment that JetBrains has not even EAP'ed ReSharper 4.0. C# 3.0 has been in the works for a couple of years now, plenty of time to start a project in the background. JetBrains used to be first to the market in innovations. Now ReSharper is becoming less and less useful to me as I am using more C# language features. Perhaps the company has taken on too much in recent years.

I really miss R# too on VS2008, however I can imagine implementing all
the new C# features is going to be quite difficult, I believe the Lambda
Expression part gave the C# Compiler team a lot of headaches too :)

Hello Wiebe,

Yeah, doing right things for C# 3.0 is very interesting experience both in
technical and product management terms. And it is really complex thing to
do it right.
I think I should blog about it in a little bit more detail. Stay tuned here:
http://resharper.blogspot.com/
I think this week I will reveal some things about C# 3.0 support in upcoming
ReSharper 4.

Ilya,

Since you're promoting your own blog, I assume the "official" blog promoted
earlier this year at http://blogs.jetbrains.com/dotnet/ is dead?

Hello Dag,

I'd rather say it is temporary suspended, since we are reorganizing some
processes here at JetBrains. We are going to resume posting on dotnet blog
pretty soon.
