JetBrains Unveils ReSharper 3.0
Tools vendor JetBrains
has released ReSharper 3.0, the latest version of its refactoring plug-in for Visual Studio.
This edition introduces support for a number of additional languages, including Visual Basic.NET, XML and XAML. It also features a cross-language capability for projects written in both C# and Visual Basic.
JetBrains says it has also deepened the product’s code analysis capabilities. Beyond spotting errors and issuing warnings, ReSharper 3.0 will provide developers with on-the-fly suggestions for improving code.
XAML features include XML editing in XAML code and real-time error, syntax and semantic analysis.
One new feature in the area of productivity enhancements is a Unit Test Explorer for conducting and debugging multiple unit tests.
JetBrains is offering ReSharper in three editions. Resharper 3.0, a full-featured version; a C# Edition that omits the VB.NET support; and a VB.NET package that leaves out the C# functionality.
