ReSharper 7 Adds Windows 8 Support, New Languages
JetBrains has announced the availability of ReSharper 7 Beta. In addition to support for Visual Studio 2012, this release includes tools for Windows 8 and WinRT development, additions to the Type Hierarchy, new refactorings, and improved support for several languages.
ReSharper 7 adds support for Visual Studio 2012 and the new Windows runtime for developers working with Metro-style applications in Windows 8. According to the JetBrains blog:
The new version includes two new refactorings: Extract Class and Transform Out Parameters to Tuple. Extract Class was one of the most-requested features in this release, and allows large classes to be split into single-responsibility classes.
Additions to the Type Hierarchy include a Members Hierarchy, which displays the types for which a member has been implemented, and a CSS Style Hierarchy, which shows CSS selectors in nested fashion.
There are several other updates to the ReSharper UI, solution-wide functions, and unit testing support. For a full list of additions, visit the JetBrains blog. ReSharper is free for open source projects, and commercial licenses start at $199.
