Entrian Attach 1.2.3: Fix for attaching the Visual Studio debugger to Java processes

Thursday, May 15th, 2014 by Richie Hindle

I’ve just released Entrian Attach 1.2.3, which fixes two bugs:

  • Entrian Attach would fail to attach your debugger to Java processes with enormously long command lines.  Thanks, Ivo and Steven.
  • Where you have more than one rule for the same executable, all rules are now consistently considered when that executable starts.  Previously, if one rule matched but another didn’t, the attach might not happen. Thanks, Jason.

The Entrian Attach download page is the place to go for the upgrade.

 

Entrian Source Search 1.4.21: Various bugs stomped

Thursday, May 15th, 2014 by Richie Hindle

I’m very pleased to announce the release of Entrian Source Search 1.4.21, which includes these bugfixes:

  • A file: filter no longer fails when you have the Case sensitive option checked.  Thanks, Martin.
  • Hitting Ctrl+= with the cursor at the beginning of a collapsed #region no longer tries to search for the entire text of the region (!)  Thanks, Robert.
  • The widths of the columns in the results list are now remembered between sessions.  Thanks, Fletcher.
  • Modal dialogs are now parented properly to Visual Studio when it isn’t in the foreground when the dialog appears.  Thanks, Ace.
  • When you use the Shift+Alt+F shortcut to start a file: search, the file: filter would occasionally be highlighted, so typing the filename would overwrite it (duh).  That’s now fixed.
  • Version 1.4.20 introduced a dependency on a CRT DLL that almost all development PCs already have, but 1.4.21 packages it for those that haven’t (which includes clean Windows 7 machines with Visual Studio 2010 installed).  Thanks, Laurent.
  • The keyboard shortcuts for toggling the various options from the Search box, like Alt+F to toggle Fuzzy Search, now use Shift+Alt rather than just Alt. If you’re in the habit of using Alt+F to show the File menu, and you happen to have your focus in the Search box at the time, you no longer accidentally kick off a potentially slow Fuzzy Search.  (In fact, the shortcut for Fuzzy Search is now Shift+Alt+Z because Shift+Alt+F starts a file: search.)  Thanks, Jason.

Entrian Source Search 1.4.21 is available from the Download page as a free upgrade for licensed users and as a 30-individual-day trial for everyone else.

 

Entrian Source Search 1.4.20: Memory leak fixed

Thursday, May 8th, 2014 by Richie Hindle

I’ve just released Entrian Source Search 1.4.20, which fixes a memory leak that could eventually lead to an OutOfMemoryException when indexing a large solution.

1.4.20 is a recommended upgrade for anyone using 1.4.18 or greater.  Please download it from the usual place.

Source Search 1.4.18: A better citizen

Monday, March 10th, 2014 by Richie Hindle

I’m pleased to announce Entrian Source Search 1.4.18, which includes the following features and fixes:

  • Never gets in the way: Source Search now uses Opportunistic Locks to ensure that it can never cause file conflicts.  If it’s in the middle of indexing a file and another process tries to open that file, it will back off and try again later, guaranteeing the other process access to the file regardless of the sharing modes involved.  (Source Search has always opened files with maximum sharing, but this goes a step further.)
  • Syntax highlighting bugfix: When a #region line contained an apostrophe (#region Here's my lovely region) the syntax highlighting no longer gets confused.

1.4.18 is available from the Download page as a free upgrade for licensed users and as a 30-individual-day trial for everyone else.

 

Entrian Source Search 1.4.17: Save keystrokes, hide bogus errors

Thursday, February 13th, 2014 by Richie Hindle

I’m pleased to announce Entrian Source Search 1.4.17, which includes the following features and fixes:

  • Save keystrokes: When you search for files using a file: / dir: / ext: / age: filter with no other search terms and there’s only one match, it will be opened in the editor automatically.  That’s 100% less wear and tear on your Down and Enter keys!  Thanks, Chris.
  • Bugfix for very large files: Source files larger than 4MB are now always completely indexed.  Thanks, Kyle.
  • Bogus error removal: Sometimes the Visual Studio editor will raise a “Catastrophic failure” exception when showing a hit, even though the operation has worked perfectly.  Rather than diligently passing these errors on, Source Search now ignores them.  Thanks, Steve.

As always, the release is available from the Source Search Download page as a free upgrade for licensed users and as a 30-individual-day trial for everyone else.

Entrian Source Search 1.4.15: F# highlighting, speedups, hotkey for substring search

Sunday, November 10th, 2013 by Richie Hindle

I’m pleased to announce Entrian Source Search 1.4.15, with these features and fixes:

  • F# support:  Hello F# developers!  For those who are new to Entrian Source Search, it’s a Visual Studio addin that builds a full-text index of your source code, giving you instant, syntax-highlighted search results.  It supports fuzzy search, proximity (loose) search, autocomplete, age filtering and much more:
     

    Note for existing users: if you already have F# code in your index, you’ll need to force a refresh to get it highlighted. Thanks, Jack and Vasily.

  • Performance boosts for indexing.  Overall indexing performance is up by about 25%, and by more like 50% for large files.
  • New hotkey Shift+Alt+Num * performs a substring search by taking the word under the cursor and adding leading and trailing asterisks, like *this*.  Thanks, Chris.
  • Corrupt file system events from network file servers no longer cause files to transiently disappear from the index.  Thanks, Jean-Michel.
  • License names containing ampersands are now displayed properly in the License Key dialog.

You can download this latest release from the Download page.

Update (1.4.16): F# double-backtick identifiers ``like this`` are now respected – they are syntax-highlighted properly, and if you hit Alt+= on one of them then Source Search will search for the whole identifier.  Thanks again, Vasily.

Question for you F# guys: What else can I do to make Entrian Source Search an excellent tool for F# development?  I have very little experience with F#, so I’m relying on you to give me ideas.  :-)
