JetBrains ReSharper 4.5 Faster and Sharper Than Ever

    PRAGUE, Czech Republic, April 9 /CNW/ - Microsoft Visual Studio
Productivity Tool Helps Upgrade Performance and Memory Usage, Continues to Aid
.NET Developers in Intelligent, Dynamic Coding
    JetBrains, the creators of intelligent, productivity-enhancing
development tools, announced today the release of ReSharper 4.5, the company's
award-winning productivity tool for Microsoft Visual Studio.


    Capitalizing on recent industry recognition - winning a Jolt Productivity
Award in March 2009 - ReSharper tackles and attains a new level of efficiency.
The latest version significantly improves performance and memory usage, in
addition to enhancing solution-wide code analysis, expanding language and
technology support, and providing new useful features.
    "Keeping performance on the edge is a challenge for any productivity
tool," said Valentin Kipiatkov, JetBrains CTO. "Lately we focused a great deal
on sharpening ReSharper, so to speak, to bring our .NET customers a faster,
more agile Visual Studio experience. As a result, this upgrade introduces the
greatest performance boost in recent product history for ReSharper, and we're
thrilled about that."
    "Companies like JetBrains are an invaluable part of the Visual Studio
ecosystem and deliver great value and functionality to developers" said Matt
Carter, Group Product Manager for Visual Studio at Microsoft. "ReSharper has
been a valuable part of many developers' toolset and continues to add value
and innovation to developers in ReSharper 4.5"
    The list of ReSharper 4.5 new features and improvements includes:

    -   Performance and Memory Usage Improvements: ReSharper loads and works
        faster and more smoothly in general, particularly on big solutions:
        now it takes 20 to 40 percent less time until the solution is ready
        for code editing. Web site loading time has been reduced by 30
        percent. Other accelerated operations include: renaming symbols,
        finding commonly used symbols, creating symbols from usage, and
        analyzing large XAML files. Memory requirements for analysis of huge
        auto-generated code files have been reduced as well.

    -   Solution-Wide Code Inspections: To detect unused non-private members
        on the fly, we have improved our solution-wide analysis by
        introducing a set of specialized code inspections. They only work
        when you let ReSharper analyze your whole solution and help you
        discover unused non- private declarations; unused return values of
        non-private methods; unaccessed non-private fields; unused parameters
        in non-private members; and more.

    -   VB9 Support: Visual Basic .NET developers can now benefit from VB9
        language support that includes implicitly typed local variables,
        object initializers, anonymous types, extension methods, lambda
        expressions, partial methods, and embedded XML. VB9 support is all
        around you, courtesy of new context actions, code completion,
        refactorings, and Parameter Info, among other supporting features.

    -   Extended Naming Style Configuration: You can now define custom naming
        style settings for different languages and symbols including types,
        namespaces, interfaces, parameters, method properties and events,
        static and instance fields etc. Use them to precisely align the way
        ReSharper completes and generates code with your specific coding

    -   Go to Implementation: Jump from usage of a base type or member
        straight to any of its end implementations.

    -   New and Improved Refactorings: Added "Inline Field" and refactored
        many other refactorings for greater performance.

    -   Native MSTest Support: Finally provided natively in ReSharper on par
        with nUnit support.

    -   Wider Cross-Language Capabilities: More efficient quick-fixes and
        context actions in many cross-language scenarios, as well as
        increased coverage for XAML and ASP.NET.

    -   Smoother Language and Framework Support: Improved compatibility with
        F No., Compact Framework, Silverlight 2 and other languages and
