I've been using the ReSharper 2 EAP for VS2005 and VS2003 since it was
available. I'm a big fan of ReSharper and was sorely missing it for the
early betas of VS2005 so please bear this in mind.
Today I've uninstalled the ReSharper 2.0 EAP on both VS2003 and VS2005.
I was using the latest EAP build 210. In the last few builds it seems to
been getting more and more buggy, to the extent now that it's becoming
Most of the features don't work:
100% - not good as this can lose work. So I stopped using refactorings

doesn't give any info, though, I switched back to VS intellisense.

get exceptions immediately in many cases.
At the same time each new EAP release seems to add additional
refactoring and other new features.
My plea is: please focus on improving the EAP stability before adding
any new features. I'll try each new EAP build but if stability doesn't
improve, I'll have to uninstall immediately.
I read the recent posting by someone making similar comments and he was
flamed. I suppose I'll get flamed too, but I do sincerely want to help
to make ReSharper 2.0 a great product. The only way to do this is to use
it for real work. You can't dogfood by just having a quick taste of a
new build - you have to use it for real work. So please take these
comments as positive suggestions on the current development focus.
