Prague, Czech Republic, June 10, 2008 — JetBrains, the creators of intelligent, productivity-enhancing applications, today announced the release of ReSharper version 4.0, the company's award-winning productivity add-in for Microsoft Visual Studio. This release is spearheaded by across-the-board support for C# 3.0 language, including LINQ, and Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 in general. In addition, the upgraded add-in features multiple new usability and productivity-boosting tools, such as standard class library annotations, solution-wide analysis (for C#), versatile code cleanup, new automated refactorings, new and improved code-editing capabilities, and more.
"In this release, we have adopted the latest C# specifications to provide the most up-to-date support for .NET developers," said Valentin Kipiatkov, JetBrains CTO. "We not only put great effort into supporting all of the features of C# 3.0, but, in keeping with our tradition, added a number of intelligent tools to make those language features much easier to work with."
Significant improvements and new features in ReSharper 4.0 include:
As before, ReSharper continues to target a variety of user groups. In addition to the full-featured ReSharper 4.0, we are offering two specialized editions: C# and VB.NET. These language-focused editions exclude a part of the functionality to provide significant savings to end users. To eliminate any confusion, there's now a single download package for all editions.
