CloudSharper is here! It has been several weeks since the previous release, therefore this version includes several major improvements.

  • CloudSharper is now officially supported on mono. Here are the installation instructions for Ubuntu 14.04:

    • Install the following packages from the Ubuntu repository:
      mono-complete fsharp
    • Download the zip version of CloudSharper Local, available here (or linked on the login page) and extract it in the folder of your choice.
    • To start CloudSharper Local, run the following command:
      mono CloudSharper.exe
  • The F# Intellisense service is now based on the latest FSharp.Compiler.Service, the community-maintained library used by the MonoDevelop and Emacs modes for F#.
  • The F# Interactive service is also based on FSharp.Compiler.Service. This gives us more control over the internals of fsi and allows more reliable extensibility for tools such as our inline charting library and on-the-fly compilation to JavaScript via WebSharper.
  • CloudSharper now manages a solution file per workspace. It is a standard Visual Studio solution file, allowing you to work comfortably on the same workspace with CloudSharper and Visual Studio. Projects are automatically added to it when created with the "Create new project" window, and removed when the .*proj file is deleted.
  • Minimal NuGet package management. CloudSharper checks for any packages.config file in your workspace and automatically installs the corresponding packages. Upcoming versions will provide automatic insertion of the relevant references in project files and a GUI to easily search, install and reference NuGet packages.

The following long-standing bugs have been fixed:

  • On some computers, the CloudSharper Local Console failed to start properly, which forced these users to start CloudSharper.exe from the command line. This is not the case anymore.
  • The installer now properly removes older versions of CloudSharper Local.

Here is the complete change list:

  • #139: "exit 1;;" in F# Interactive gives error message
