What's New in dotPeek
Metadata tree improvements:
Navigation to source from a document token node (portable pdb subtree).
Navigation to pdb content (.xml) from a portable pdb subtree root node.
Navigation to nuspec (double-click a nuget node in the Assembly Explorer window)
Dependencies node for NuGet package in the Assembly Explorer window.
Local functions decompilation (C# 7.0)
Pattern matching decompilation: const pattern, type pattern, type patterns in the case clauses (predicates and discards are supported) (C# 7.0)
System.Delegateand unmanaged constraints (C# 7.3)
fixedfields indexing without pinning (C# 7.3)
Decompilation support for the following C# constructs:
Indexer (dictionary) initializers
Metadata tee improvements:
Metadata subtree (headers / directories) for files that are not supported by the decompiler.
Improved presentation and new filed descriptions in headers.
Absolute offsets for metadata tables, metadata table rows, heap items (the offsets are displayed in the Properties window).
File description (Version Info) for assemblies in the Properties window.
If any of the navigation and search commands results in multiple matches inside a single method, dotPeek now displays all of them in the search results.
The results of Search Everywhere (Ctrl+N) now include occurrences of the search query in strings.
Improvements in Go to String (Ctrl+Alt+T): search in attributes, better presentation and navigation directly to the search query occurrence in long and multiline strings.
More features for Portable PDB in the Metadata tree.
Proper decompilation of
Improvements and fixes for displaying and navigating IL code.
Metadatanode in the Assembly Explorer helps explore assembly metadata.
dotPeek automatically highlights usages of the symbol under the caret.
Extension methods rendered as instance methods in decompiled code.
Viewing intermediate language (IL) side by side with decompiled C# code.
Find Usages works asynchronously, letting you keep on working with the decompiler while it executes time consuming usage search in the background.
dotPeek supports the same set of color themes as that of Visual Studio with the ability to synchronize your color scheme preference with Visual Studio settings.
Usage-aware behavior of the Go to Declaration command.
Ability to decompile assemblies build with Roslyn
Ability to decompile the following C# 6.0 features: exception filters, auto-properties with initializers
Ability to display metadata tokens in the Assembly Explorer and as comments in decompiled code.
Ability to navigate to metadata tokens.
Go to String command now lets you find string literals in constant string fields and in default values of string parameters.
Navigate to Exposing API command that allows you to navigate from a type to all places in the currently loaded assemblies where you can get an instance of this type.
Go to String command.
Go to Action command that helps you quickly find and apply any of dotPeek's actions.
Ability to search preferences in the Options dialog
Ability to generate PDB files for .NET assemblies which were compiled with the
Process Explorer window that provides you with the list of currently running processes and allows exploring their modules and decompiling those of them that are .NET assemblies.
