Jet Brains have announced ReSharper 7.1: a considerable update to the powerful .NET developer productivity tool for Visual Studio. They invite you to download ReSharper 7.1 and take it for a free 30-day trial. I urge you to try this excellent Visual Studio add-on. Here is their announcement:

Following this update, ReSharper 7 brings even more value to all .NET developers, such as more ways to refactor, inspect, clean up, review and generate code. Feature highlights of ReSharper 7 now include:

  • Full integration with Visual Studio 2012 while maintaining support for Visual Studio 2005, 2008, and 2010.
  • Performance and bug fixes: Since releasing version 7.0 this summer, we have fixed over 300 performance problems and bugs.
  • New code inspections and contract annotations for a more robust .NET code quality analysis. Sharing ReSharper code inspection results with teammates has been streamlined as well for the purposes of code review.
  • Improved tooling for .NET code maintenance including the top requested Extract Class refactoring that helps decrease code complexity, as well as a way to remove unused assembly references across the entire solution.
  • Enhanced code formatter: We have implemented some of the most demanded code formatter improvements so far. For example, ReSharper 7.1 is able to format XML doc comments and chained method calls.
  • Additional code exploration features helping visualize hierarchies of polymorphic members and CSS styles.
  • An extended and fine-tuned code generation toolset.

In terms of support for specific technologies and frameworks, ReSharper 7 is on the cutting edge as well, providing:

  • Support for VB.NET refined with the Extract Class refactoring, new quick-fixes and improved IntelliSense.
  • XAML support considerably enhanced in terms of code completion, typing assistance, naming style control, and code generation.
  • An extensive pack of functionality for developers looking to create Windows Store applications for Windows 8.
  • INotifyPropertyChanged interface support pack to improve productivity of Windows Forms, WPF and Silverlight application developers.
  • Extended web development toolset, including improvements to JavaScript support, and initial support for ASP.NET 4.5 and ASP.NET MVC 4.
  • Addition of two previously unsupported Microsoft development technologies: LightSwitch and SharePoint.
