JetBrains Upgrades ReSharper Ultimate Tools, Adds .NET Core 2.0 Support

JetBrains is out with the year's second upgrade to its ReSharper Ultimate suite of tools for enhancing .NET development, featuring the popular ReSharper offering for code refactoring.

ReSharper Ultimate 2017.2 was announced in a blog post last week. In addition to ReSharper proper, the tools package includes: ReSharper C++; dotCover (a code coverage tool); dotTrace (for .NET profiling); dotMemory (a memory profiler and unit-testing framework); and dotPeek (a free .NET decompiler and assembly browser).

Highlighting the new release is support for Microsoft's new .NET Core 2.0 that comes with Visual Studio 2017 15.3.

.NET Core 2.0 is described by Microsoft as a "cross-platform, open source, and modular .NET platform for creating modern Web apps, microservices, libraries and console applications" for Windows, Linux and Mac.

"Your favorite code inspections, navigation actions and refactorings are now available in .NET Core 2.0 projects, including the new ASP.NET Core Razor Pages projects," JetBrains said in detailing improvements to the individual ReSharper tool. "Lots of .NET Core unit testing issues have been resolved along the way, and you can now run xUnit.net, NUnit or MSTest in your .NET Core 2.0 projects."

The standalone ReSharper tool also sees: improved support for C# 7.0; new code inspections; null checking improvements; TypeScript, JavaScript, JSON and Angular support improvements; and interactive tutorials.

The suite's other tools also received upgrades. For example, ReSharper C++ 2017.2 reportedly better understands and supports features from C++11 and C++17, among other enhancements.

The entire list of new features can be seen here, illustrated with animated GIFs.

"An active subscription to ReSharper, ReSharper Ultimate, ReSharper Ultimate + Rider or All Products pack makes you immediately eligible for this update," the company said.
