  • You can now display charts easily in LINQPad with the new Chart() extension method. Click here for interactive samples.
  • You can now play with nullable reference types in C# and VB. Go to Edit | Preferences > Query, and check the option to enable the Roslyn experimental assemblies. Click here for information on how to give feedback to the C# team.
  • There's now a vi emulation mode! Go to Edit | Preferences | vi Mode to enable. Please report any issues here.

  • Ctrl+{ now wraps the current line (or lines) in braces.
  • Util.Dif has a new parameter to display only members that differ. It also now returns a type with an IsSame boolean property, which you can use to determine whether the objects will display without differences.
  • Util.RawHtml now allows malformed HTML or HTML that won't parse completely or correctly via XElement.
  • The Dump pipeline now recognizes the new Span/ReadOnlySpan types, and is more tolerant of bad Unicode sequences.

  • The TLS error when downloading certain custom data context drivers has now been fixed.
  • Util.HorizontalRun no longer emits an extra blank line.
  • Spatially typed columns should now appear again with the standard LINQ-to-SQL driver (in read-only mode).

LINQPad 5 vs LINQPad 4

LINQPad 5 targets .NET Framework 4.6 and includes the following major new features:

  • Full support for C# 7 and VB 15.
  • Background code-checking - both parsing and binding errors show with red squigglies. Resolved symbols display in turquoise, and unresolved symbols in red. Compilation is quicker, because most of the work is done in advance.
  • (Pro/Premium Editions) Automatic code formatting, 'Rename Symbol', 'Jump to Definition', and 'Find References'.
  • (Pro/Premium Editions) Autocompletion for VB, including member listings, parameter info, quick info, background compilation, smart-tags, and auto-formatting.
  • (Pro/Premium Editions) Autocompletion for F#, including member listings, parameter info and quick info.
  • Built-in F# compiler (so fsc.exe is not required) with full F# autocompletion.
  • Built-in Roslyn Syntax Tree Visualizer. The syntax tree for your query appears automatically as an output tab, and you can invoke it programmatically with .DumpSyntaxTree() or .DumpSyntaxNode().
  • Authenticated feed support within the NuGet package manager.

If you own a Pro or Premium edition of LINQPad 4, LINQPad 5 is a paid upgrade.
