I’m very pleased to announce that .NET Reflector 7.2 has been released. You can get it via the main download link on the homepage at www.reflector.net.
- We found and fixed the start-up performance problem that was plaguing Reflector 7.2 – I’ve blogged about this extensively elsewhere so please see http://www.reflector.net/2011/07/you-want-speed-we-got-speed/ and http://www.reflector.net/2011/05/net-reflector-7-start-up-time-running-out-of-gas-or-pedal-to-the-metal/ if you’d like to know more.
- Many decompilation improvements, particularly when dealing with expressions and LINQ queries.
- All add-ins built for previous versions of Reflector should now work – see http://www.reflector.net/2011/07/supporting-add-ins-across-multiple-versions-of-reflector/ for more information. There are a few object model changes that might cause compatibility issues for a small number of add-ins – please see Clive’s post at http://www.reflector.net/2011/07/some-changes-to-the-object-model-for-7-2/ for more information.
- Many additional bug fixes to cure stability problems, reported via SmartAssembly error reporting, along with a number of UI glitches.
I’m also pleased to be able to announce the release of the first .NET Reflector 7.3 early access build, which includes BAML to XAML decompilation. This isn’t yet perfect but as you can see from this screenshot it works pretty well:
(We’ll obviously sort out the formatting in due course.)
You can get the 7.3 EA build from the EA download link at the bottom of the www.reflector.net homepage.
