What’s New in Version 5.00
Current registered users: This program will install side by side with your previous installation and not overwrite it.
For new trial users: There is a 15 day trial period, 2000 line limitation per project converted.
Version 5.00 contains a number of improvements, thanks to the detailed feedback and interaction with many customers.
User Interface Improvements:
There is now the ability to import, export option settings and to restore them to default values.
On Windows 10, it no longer prompts to install .Net 3.5.
- Visual Studio 2017 is now fully supported, including binary literals and tuples.
- Changed With variables to use implicitly types variables (var) instead of dynamic.
- Improved accuracy in string interpolation conversions.
- Improved conversions of auto-implemented readonly properties.
- Fixed problem converting project references which specify $(TargetDir) in the output or hint paths.
- Date constants are now converted as new DateTime(), instead of DateTime.Parse().
- Warnings are now not issued for Option Strict Off in Reference.vb, an auto-generated file.
- Improved conversion of VB routines marked as Overloads, without relying on compiler error correction to insert “new” as needed.
- Explicit types in inline lambda expressions/statements are now output during the conversion.
- Fixed issue converting lambda statements in inline functions/subs.
- Improved accuracy in complex typeof conversions.
- Fixed problem of optional parameter default values not being set correctly.
- Corrected errors in converting variables named “Left”, which don’t correspond to the built in VB.Net Left function.
- Simplified conversions of enum references to not use fully qualified names if not necessary.
- Corrected issue of conversion hanging with xaml projects containing special characters in the path name.
- Fixed issue of unnecessary parenthesis being issued after variable names, then removed during compiler error correction process.
- Improved variable resolution to external assembly static methods.
- Fixed error converting property setters which don’t specify a value variable and also have a visibility specifier.
- Fixed error converting property getters which have a visibility specifier.
- Corrected issue converting inline XML, where a class attribute would sometimes be mistaken for XML.
- Fixed error of Extension attributes sometimes being output in C#.
- Fixed issue of variables in attributes not being resolved correctly in some circumstances.
- Fixed problem of constants being referenced in AssemblyInfo not resolving correctly.
- The VB.Net Split function converts more accurately on the initial conversion, without relying on the compiler error correction feature to fix issues.
- There is more simplified conversions of Select Case True statements.
