ReSharper 6: A New Benchmark for Developer Productivity in Visual Studio

Prague, Czech Republic, June 30, 2011 — JetBrains®, creators of intelligent, productivity-enhancing development tools, today announced the public availability of ReSharper 6, a new major version of their renowned developer productivity extension for Visual Studio.

To meet and exceed the expectations of web developers who have asked for more web technology support, ReSharper 6 introduces rich toolsets for JavaScript, CSS, and ASP.NET MVC 3 Razor view engine. These include code quality analysis, powerful navigation, advanced reference finder, extended IntelliSense, code formatting, and naming style control.

However, ReSharper 6 is not only about web development — far from it. The new version introduces decompiling functionality inside Visual Studio; adds VB.NET code analysis; brings multiple new code inspections to prevent hard-to-detect runtime bugs in C# code; extends and streamlines navigation and search; makes available new refactorings and code transformations; and raises the level of XAML and unit testing support.

"We've supported three huge web development technologies and made a host of improvements that are relevant to any .NET developer — all in just more than a year. We're proud of that," said Ilya Ryzhenkov, ReSharper Product Manager. "Continuing the recent tradition of cutting-edge releases by JetBrains, ReSharper 6 once again sets the bar high for all developer productivity tools around."

ReSharper 6 highlights include:

  • Rich support for JavaScript, CSS, and ASP.NET MVC 3 Razor view engine including code inspections, all-around navigation and usage search, plus extended IntelliSense
  • Navigation and search improved with new features and usability enhancements
  • Bundled decompiler with the entire range of ReSharper navigation inside
  • New refactorings and code transformations, including transforming LINQ to loops
  • Multiple new code inspections and quick-fixes for C#
  • Auto-importing namespaces on pasting code
  • Code quality analysis and quick-fixes for VB.NET code
  • Multiple unit test runner improvements
  • Bug fixes and new actions in XAML support
