Following a month of early access, we're revealing beta builds of two of our .NET tools, namely dotTrace 4.5 Performance and dotCover 1.1.

dotTrace 4.5 Performance Beta improves snapshot tree representation; allows putting all public methods of a class to a dedicated tab; provides new options to estimate potential performance gains; previews source code of .NET Framework assemblies, and introduces a new floating license handling policy.

dotCover 1.1 Beta brings a wealth of improvements including advanced presentation of class members and on-the-fly filtering in the tree of coverage results; integration with NDepend and Visual Studio TeamCity plug-in; incremental update of coverage info when rerunning tests; HTML and JSON reporting; and per-solution coverage settings.

Learn more about these beta releases on the JetBrains .NET Tools Blog, and download them from dotTrace web site and dotCover web site.
