CodeRush for Roslyn, v16.1.7

Today CodeRush for Roslyn v16.1.7 is available. Team CodeRush continues its 45-day sprint & release cycle.

This release adds a few new features, and addresses a number of customer-reported issues.

My favorite new feature in this release is the availability of Reorder Parameters. This extremely efficient refactoring is now available at method calls, multi-dimensional indexed property references, and object creation expressions. So you can be anywhere in your code, and see a method call with arguments in non-intuitive places, and reorder that call’s parameters immediately, and CodeRush for Roslyn will update the declaration and all references automatically.



Another nice addition is the return of being able to use the Spacebar to expand/collapse regions:



And we improved the performance of the IntelliRush experience.


We also discovered three undocumented features we added to the Debug Visualizer back in version 1.0.12, which you may have already experienced.

1. Array contents preview at debug time:



2. Color swatch preview at debug time:



3. Font preview at debug time:



Download CodeRush for Roslyn from the Visual Studio Gallery, and let us know what you think.

Updates every 45 days.

As a longtime CodeRush user, I have become dependent on the old Ctrl+B smart paste feature.  Will this be available in CR for Roslyn?  If it already is available, how do I activate it?

Hi Paul,

Ctrl+B to paste-replace word is expected for CR for Roslyn, however I can't guarantee if it will make it into this next sprint.

Mark, can Dx do a table with comparision of CR Classics a CR for Roslyn features? I mean available refactorings e.t.c..

As a long term advanced CR user I would like to see if I can try tu use CRR or if CRR is missing some important features for me.

I would love seeing that full comparison too (and updated on each release).

Right now, and it might seem weird to you, but what I miss the most is region painting (the full horizontal separators) and the 3 blue dots. You'd think the lightbulb (or the hotkey) is a good replacement, but it's per line -- the 3 blue dots were per syntactic element on the line and that made all the difference in the world as to how smart CR was about offering things to me.

I definitely do not miss the 45s of frozen VS loading big solutions though :D
