The JetBrains team announced the release of a new version of the .NET-tools family of add-ons - ReSharper Ultimate 2018.2. In particular, the update of ReSharper has been supported by C # 7.3, built-in spell checker and several new navigation features.

Main features of ReShaper Ultimate 2018.2:

  • Performance improvements: Developers made about 30 performance fixes in different parts of ReSharper, from speeding up EditorConfig support to decreasing solution loading times. 
  • C# 7.3 support: ReSharper finally supports all features from the latest C# 7.3. New inspections and appropriate quick-fixes are here to make your code C# 7.3 compatible.
  • JSLint, ESLint, and TSLint support: These three great static analysis tools have been integrated into JavaScript/TypeScript code analysis to provide additional inspections and corresponding quick-fixes.
  • Integrated spell checking with ReSpeller: 2018.2 comes with spell-checking functionality out of the box, enabled for most of the supported languages.

  • Initial Blazor support: Even though Blazor is declared experimental for now, team added initial support for this promising framework in ReSharper. For instance, code completion includes all the possible directives, e.g. page (routing), inject (service injection), and function (component members).
  • The Parameter Info popup and the Summary tooltip for IntelliSense: When using code completion in C# or VB.NET, ReSharper displays parameter types and method return types in a different color, making it easier to visually identify method overloads.
  • Navigation improvements: Now you can exclude files by mask from all Search & Navigation features, and find function signatures copied from dotTrace’s or Visual Studio’s call stack view in Search EverywhereFile StructureContaining Declaration, and Next/Previous Members now take local functions into account.
  • The formatter engine update: Comments in a code file that override formatter settings can be generated automatically. The presentation for formatting rules which come from a StyleCop configuration file has been improved.
  • Refactorings UI update: Several ReSharper refactorings have been moved to the new presentation framework, which will yield many benefits in the coming future thanks to a unified control behavior for ReSharper and Rider. As for visible UI changes, most noticeable ones are code completion available in Change Signature and a better presentation for Extract Method.
  • Other features: Fix-in-scope quick-fixes now have more granular fixing scopes; the code style for Built-in Type has been improved; there’s a new option to execute BeforeBuild and AfterBuild targets for skipped projects in ReSharper Build; and a new inspection was added to highlight misplaced text in XAML.

In addition to ReSharper, the tool family includes ReSharper C ++, dotMemory, dotTrace, dotCover, and dotPeek.

  • ReSharper C ++: Support for C ++ / CLI, C ++ 17 and C ++ 20.
  • dotCover: Integration with the JetBrains Rider IDE and the use of an internal tool to run from the command line as an extension for dotnet.exe.

  • dotTrace: Performance improvements and the .NET process filter.

  • dotPeek: Improved type support with methods without implementation.

Shortly before the release of ReSharper Ultimate 2018.2, the version of Microsoft Visual Studio 2017 15.8 was released. It had received a lot of new fuctions.

JetBrains released last 2018 update for its .NET tools. In particular, the ReSharper Ultimate  received automatic annotation of arguments and definition of the code format, as well as TypeScript 3.0 support and earlier - Visual Studio 2019.

When calling methods, the code editor now annotates the value of the argument with the parameter name. This allows you to better understand what it is responsible for.

The developers have configured automatic detection and "alignment" of the code format. In addition, there was an autodetection of the style of the names used. Typically, ReSharper follows the naming conventions proposed by Microsoft. However, now, if the developer deviates from them, the editor himself adapts to the new principles and does not display warnings about the mismatch of names.

To simplify unit testing, the JetBrains team added a set of code verification methods with quick edits and tips for further actions depending on the context. In order for ReSharper to comply with information processing standards (FIPS, USA), the developers abandoned the md5 hashing algorithm and eliminated all cases of its use in the editor code.

Other key features:

  • ReSharper C ++: improved code refactoring, support for C ++ / CLI, work of Go to Declaration and Search Everywhere commands, error detection in templates.
  • dotCover: improved filter system. Now they are divided into two groups - runtime filters and result filters.
  • dotTrace: added tool integration to JetBrains Rider. Now you can configure and run profiling sessions, take snapshots and analyze them in the built-in viewer.
  • dotMemory: added a new condition for snapshot - if the amount of memory used exceeds a certain number of megabytes.
  • dotPeek: added support for decompiling more C # 7.x functions and copying the fully qualified name (FQN) character to the clipboard.
