CodeRush Xpress announced and available

We've just announced a new joint venture with Microsoft: CodeRush Xpress. This is a set of navigation features of CodeRush and some of the more important refactorings in Refactor! Pro bundled together in a nice free download for C# developers.

Steve: it's only for C# at the moment. We already are providing Refactor! for VB for free, but we are certainly looking at CRX for VB in the future.

Bad experiences:

I have announced this good news in our czech newsgroup. About five users reported, that they tried to use CodeRush XPress and  must uninstall it inmediatelly. It causes crashes of their Visual Studio after simple operations (paste test).

Note that I myself are long-term and very satisfied user CodeRush&Refactor.
