ReSharper 7 supports the newest Visual Studio, eases transition to Metro style applications, and adds substantial improvements for all .NET developers.
Prague, Czech Republic, July 26, 2012 — JetBrains®, creators of intelligent, productivity-enhancing software development tools, today announced the general availability of ReSharper 7, a major new release of their all-time classic productivity extension for Microsoft Visual Studio.
With Visual Studio 2012 and Windows 8 RTM just around the corner, ReSharper 7 adds full-blown support for Visual Studio 2012 while preserving compatibility with Visual Studio 2005, 2008, and 2010.
