i just installed the first 6.1 EAP (on VS 2010) and played a little bit around with it on a VB project. My first impression of the promised performance improvements is that it feels not much faster, but this i will test in the next week in my production solution which has big performance trouble.
The first thing i stumbled over is the intellisense behavior. I tested the new autopopup settings and found that the two options "Display and preselect" and "Display but do not preselect" seems not to work. I explicetly misspelled a declaration like this:
(which is a common mistake i make when i type fast). No matter which of the two options i select in "Letters and digits", when i press the tab key after finish typing my misspelled "intreger" is replaced by "EnhancedInterfaceRenderer". In this case i except, that nothing happens when i press the tab key.
On the other hand when the entry is really selected like this
and i press the tab key it is ok when my text is replaced.
R# 6.0 has a similar behavior and it is one of the most annoying issues for me. Is there any chance to change this behavior? In this case the old 5.0 intellisense was much better (or poorer ??? ;))
