And there was much rejoicing...
Truth be told, I never understood the need or desire for IDE plugins. Then about a year ago, one of my co-workers was demoing something and kept making changes with what appeared to be piano chords on his keyboard. He was cleaning up and refactoring on the fly and it was like magic. I was hooked.
We've had to live without real support for C# 3.0 and the ASP.NET related memory problems were well documented. Now they've gone away, and life is good. I've been using various nightly builds with a fair amount of success and only the occasional crash. Can't wait to get this version installed!
Best $200 you'll ever spend.
