New .NET tools licensing plan effective in August

Updated 9.7.2020


The JetBrains product line includes several products that help .NET developers increase their productivity and create higher quality apps. This collection of offerings includes Visual Studio extensions (ReSharper and ReSharper C++), a stand-alone IDE (Rider), profilers (dotMemory and dotTrace), and a coverage tool (dotCover). At the moment, these tools are covered by several different licensing offers. In order to simplify the licensing model, make the licensing packs more unified and essential, and drive the sales of the all-in-one .NET tools pack, we are introducing some changes and will offer the following three .NET licensing plans: ReSharper (provides access to ReSharper and ReSharper C++), Rider (provides access to JetBrains Rider), and dotUltimate (provides access to ReSharper, ReSharper C++, JetBrains Rider, dotMemory, dotTrace, dotCover).

We will no longer sell ReSharper C++, ReSharper Ultimate, or ReSharper Ultimate+Rider licenses. The dotUltimate license will cover the same product set (all .NET tools) as ReSharper Ultimate+Rider, but it will cost the same as ReSharper Ultimate currently does. ReSharper C++ will be licensed under the regular ReSharper license. Current ReSharper license holders will gain access to ReSharper C++, and vice-versa.

The changes will take effect along with the 2020.2 release, scheduled for approximately August 4, 2020.

Apple Reduces Validity Period for TLS/SSL Certificates

Updated 16.6.2020


On March 3, 2020, Apple announced that they are changing TLS/SSL certificates to have a maximum validity period of 398-days. This new policy reduces the validity period to about one year plus one month to support TLS/SSL certificates before they expire and require renewal.

According to the Apple announcement, the new policy will become effective September 1, 2020, and will require that all new certificates issued as of that date may not exceed 398-days. If a certificate is issued for greater than the restriction, it will not be trusted by Safari browsers.
