Evolving F# support
Rider 2017.2 comes with a series of new features and improvements around F#.
For example, it's now possible to work with .NET Core
F# projects, for both SDK 1.0 and 2.0.
For F# projects that use Paket instead of NuGet, Rider now disables its
automatic NuGet restore on loading such projects. This ensures that projects like Fable load
properly in Rider.

ensuring that F# code is exposed correctly in C# projects.
Rider now enables code folding
in the editor. Pretty much any multi-line expression/statement can now be folded or unfolded.

action, which comments out the current selection with
Looking up the documentation never hurts when writing code, and Rider now displays XML
doc comments in a tooltip when hovering over documented code.
When you debug, Rider now supports evaluating expressions on hover, allowing
us to inspect a variable from within the editor.
