On Wednesday at //build/ 2016 Microsoft released Update 2 for Visual Studio 2015. Today, our @roslyn 1.2 compatible version 4.0 of Refactoring Essentials follows suit (I totally like doing useful stuff on April 1st).
We are proud that we now have crossed the line of 250 refactorings/analyzers and fixes for C# and VB, and we expect to extend our VB support via cross-language analyzers using the new IOperation API. However, before getting ahead of ourselves with futures, one more feature stands out in the 4.0 release: our Roslyn Code Converter.
It has soft-launched on the Web with a REST API (background information), and is now available in the Refactoring Essentials extension, where it runs locally:
Details of what else is new can be found - as is now customary - in the release notes in our GH wiki.
In closing, I want to circle back to the future: aside from looking into IOperation, configuration is also top of our mind. And we have more ideas, so help is very much appreciated - please check out our contributing doc.
