ReSharper 4 -- Status Update

Hello,

I must admit, we were not very responsive in the forums for the last month
or so. We were busy developing ReSharper 4 :) Here is quick update.

We are currently working on preparing ReSharper for Beta - performance, memory,
overall stability and reliability. Beta should be out very soon. Then we
will have post-Beta cleanup, more stabilization for Release, fill in missing
bricks found during Beta, and then ... Well, overall time scope for ReSharper
4 release is about a month.

Thank you for your patience, we really appreciate your participation in our
early access program! We are doing our best to deliver smart and quality
product.

And while we are here, what is single most important thing you want to
be fixed/changed before release?

Sincerely,
Ilya Ryzhenkov

Hello,

If i do an Alt-Ins in the Solution Explorer, then the Popup opens
everywhere, but not at the expected position (under the selected item
in the solution explorer).


One of the problems with Solution Explorer is that we're not told of the
selected item position onscreen.

Where would it typically appear?

Hello Serge,

The improved "Generate" feature is not yet public :) I'm going to open it
to everyone in few days. Sorry for inconvenience.

Hello Paul,

Did you try build 801 with ASP.NET projects?

Well, typically under the selected item. Within the Solution may also helps,
but not on the other side of the Window (see attachment).

Installed Build 803 a few hours ago and using it on a web app project. It has lots of lambda expressions and LINQ statements in it. Build 803 is MAGNITUDES faster than earlier builds! And I didn't have any problems with it so far. Superb work! :)

WOW!
I downloaded build 801 this last week when I saw your msg and was amazed at
how well it performed. I of course thought maybe this was just a fluke, but
I worked with it all weekend in several projects, and had zero problems like
I saw before. I did get into it with the logger failing for some out of
memory error - but it never caused me any grief other than an annoying popup
that once I restarted went away.

Kudos to you guys, thanks for making my week! :)

Hello Chris,

>

I've just submited change to fix potential memory leak in ASPX files. Due
to the complex structure of ASP support and so many variation of web
site's configurations, I'm not 100% sure it will fix problem you
experience, but please try build 801 when it is out and tell us if it
helps.
Sincerely,
Ilya Ryzhenkov

I can also confirm that performance has improved considerably in build 801.
Great work, Ilya.

I'd love to have XAML intellisense triggered automatically just
as it is in C# code. I find it somewhat annoying having to hit Ctrl+Space
or CtrlShiftSpace every time I want to add a property (attribute)
assignment.

The one thing that would really help us is support for MSTest private accessors. See a post by Michael Flanakin on Mar 15, 2008 11:17 PM for details. It may be a bad habit to use private accessors, but we have, and all the false errors make solution-wide checking a lot less useful.

JIRA has the issue (RSRP-60958) listed as fixed, but it sure doesn't look fixed to me...

Other than that I have to say - great work!

Kevin

The support should have been implemented quite a few builds ago. Today I
just polished it a bit.

I handed off build 804 to one of our web developers, and his response was,
after two days, "It seems more stable than the 3.1.x version I was using,
but only slightly faster load times, if at all".

It's still taking several minutes for subsequent loads of a large website
project it seems. ANYTHING that can speed that up is appreciated.

I'll try to report back soon with more hard numbers, but performance with
websites still seems to be an issue, though slightly less than in 3.1.x (the
latest nightly build, not the release version).

Hello brantheman,

This was a bug which caused excessive logging in a previous build. This
should have been fixed now.

Please fix performance problems with ASP.NET too please. 4.0 seems better than 3.1, but any further improvement on that would be much appreciated. We have fairly large web sites and 3.x has been completely unusable on it, so we have stopped using Resharper while working with those solutions. In particular, if you can have options to exclude certain folders from being parsed, that would be good, since we have a few very large "content" folders (images, movies, etc.) and it's been very frustrating to see the "parsing xxx.jpg" message flying by the status bar, while those files have nothing to do whatsoever with the code.

Keep up the good work. W/o you guys, VS would be a pretty inferior product.
