We introduced the ability to show files in a single Preview tab, as you are used to in Visual Studio. It helps when you are looking for something specific and don't want to keep these files open as separate tabs.
If you want to keep the file in a separate tab, click the Keep open icon on the Preview tab. To disable the Preview tab, go to Tools | Options | Tabs and select Allow new files to be opened in the preview tab.
We moved the Quick Find feature from a separate tool window to the text editor tab. Now, when you call Quick Find (Ctrl+F) for a file, the Quick Find pane appears inside the text editor tab for the file.
We also added the F3 and Shift+F3 shortcuts, which allow you to quickly navigate to the next or previous occurrence when you are looking for something using the Quick Find pane.
dotPeek now shows XML doc comments for platform assemblies, including assemblies whose names differ from the names of the XML documentation files, for example, System.Private.CoreLib. The path to the XML documentation is now displayed in the decompiled file’s header.
The Assembly Explorer now supports forwarded types (the TypeForwardedTo attributes). The Locate in Metadata action also works for forwarded types, assembly and module references, and resources.
dotPeek provides initial support for record and record struct types. Support for
with expression for records, record structs, and structs is also available.
As for other C# features included in this release, the decompiler now supports asynchronous dispose (await using).
We’re continuing to improve our support for reading and decompiling single-file apps:
.jsonfiles – for example, the
Now dotPeek can decompile single-file apps. It also lets you browse through bundled assemblies inside a single-file app just like you are used to doing. It supports single-file formats for the .NET Core 3.1, .NET 5, and the upcoming .NET 6 SDKs.
When working with several tabs at once, you can now pin them. Additionally, the color of a tab indicates the type of code you will see – green represents a metadata view and brown stands for sources from symbol files. The options to pin tabs and to color code them can be disabled in Tools | Options | Environment | Tabs.
We’ve updated the formatter for decompiled code with a set of options to control how the code is presented. You can now set indent style and size, select whether the open brace should be placed on a new line, and if you’d prefer to use expression-bodied members. You can find them in Tools | Options | Decompiler | Code style and formatting.
