Entrian Source Search 1.5.3: VS2015, Preview Tab, High-Contrast Theme, Bugfixes

Tuesday, August 11th, 2015 by

I’m pleased to announce Entrian Source Search 1.5.3:

  • Support for Visual Studio 2015 is now out of Beta status – many thanks to those that tried it out during its Beta period.
  • All the Source Search commands now have toolbar icons in the “Customize” dialog of Visual Studio 2015, where previously some of them had blank icons.  Also note that the Source Search commands are under the “Tools” category in VS2015 rather than “Addins”. (Thanks, Hans-Peter).
  • Preview Tab support: If you’ve enabled “Allow new files to be opened in the preview tab” then Source Search will now respect that (thanks, Martin and Mike).
  • Indexing performance: The initial scan of your solution when you open it in Visual Studio is now more efficient, and has less impact on your PC’s performance (thanks, Frederic).
  • High contrast theme support: Source Search now works properly with the Windows High Contrast theme (thanks, Martin).
  • The Autosuggest dropdown no longer stops working after you reload a solution without closing Visual Studio (thanks, Daniel).
  • Bugfix to shared indexes: when you have two instances of Visual Studio open, each with a different solution open but sharing the same Source Search index, changing the options in one instance now also applies your changes to the second (thanks, Chris).
  • When you restart Visual Studio, the Source Search tool window reappears correctly (thanks, Huy).
  • It’s no longer possible to accidentally remove all inclusion patterns from your index settings, and therefore have an index with no files in it (thanks, Mark).

Entrian Source Search is a free upgrade to all licensed users, and a 30-individual-day trial for everyone else.  You can download it from the download page.

 

PS. Have you seen Entrian’s new product, Inline Watch? It displays the values of variables inline in your source code, updated live as you step through your code.  If you’ve ever used the Visual Studio debugger, I think you’ll like it:

You can read all about in on the Inline Watch homepage.  I’d love to hear your opinion!
