It is almost a year since I first released the Color Coder extension. I haven’t spent much time on it and planed to do it once it hit a certain amount of users. But recently with Visual Studio update 15.7 the extension didn’t work properly. So I fixed it and made other improvements to it too while I was at it.
The problem that was causing the issue was some changes to
ClassifiedSpan in Roslyn compiler. This version doesn’t have any new features and is more of a patch release. But it has a lot of performance improvements. Here’s the list of changes in this version.
- Fix the compatibility issue with VS 15.7
- Remove the predefined font sizes
- Change the way Color Coder colors the Interfaces, Classes, Enums, Namespances, etc. Which make it faster
- Refactoring of overall solution which makes it easier to read and easier to change
