JetBrains, creators of intelligent, productivity-enhancing development tools, today announced the public availability of ReSharper 6, a new major version of their renowned developer productivity extension for Visual Studio.
To meet and exceed the expectations of web developers who have asked for more web technology support, ReSharper 6 introduces rich toolsets for JavaScript, CSS, and ASP.NET MVC 3 Razor view engine. These include code quality analysis, powerful navigation, advanced reference finder, extended IntelliSense, code formatting, and naming style control.
However, ReSharper 6 is not only about web development — far from it. The new version introduces decompiling functionality inside Visual Studio; adds VB.NET code analysis; brings multiple new code inspections to prevent hard-to-detect runtime bugs in C# code; extends and streamlines navigation and search; makes available new refactorings and code transformations; and raises the level of XAML and unit testing support.
“We’ve supported three huge web development technologies and made a host of improvements that are relevant to any .NET developer — all in just more than a year. We’re proud of that,” said Ilya Ryzhenkov, ReSharper Product Manager. “Continuing the recent tradition of cutting-edge releases by JetBrains, ReSharper 6 once again sets the bar high for all developer productivity tools around.”

∙ Rich support for JavaScript, CSS, and ASP.NET MVC 3 Razor view engine including code inspections, all-around navigation and usage search, plus extended IntelliSense
