PRAGUE, Czech Republic -- March 7, 2005 — JetBrains™, Inc., creators of intelligent, productivity-enhancing tools, announced today the release of ReSharper™ 1.5, the first major upgrade to the company's intelligent plug-in for Visual Studio .NET 2003. ReSharper 1.5 provides C# developers with the same robust types of productivity enhancements that Java developers rely on in the company's flagship IntelliJ IDEA IDE, now in version 4.5.
"We introduced ReSharper 1.0 last July and the response to its productivity enhancements by the developer community has been overwhelmingly positive," said Eugene Belyaev, JetBrains president and CTO. "We're excited to be able to offer many new refactorings in this new version 1.5 upgrade, which we have kept as affordable as the original version. We look forward to receiving continued feedback and suggestions from the C# developers who have guided this tool's evolution."
ReSharper was created to increase the productivity of C# developers by providing them with a rich set of technology-leading features that include intelligent coding assistance, on-the-fly error highlighting and uick error correction, and unmatched support for code refactoring. ReSharper's tight integration with Visual Studio .NET provides quick and easy access to all of its advanced features right from the IDE.
Powerful new refactorings introduced in ReSharper 1.5 include:
ReSharper 1.5 can also generate "delegation" methods useful for delegating the execution of a particular method to an instance of a particular class, eliminating the need to carry out this very detailed operation manually. ReSharper generates all necessary code immediately. Other improvements in the new version 1.5 include general performance enhancements and various bug fixes.
