      What took you guys so long ? Actually C++ is the language that need more help from intellisense, IDE, tooling and refactoring.

      The new search is really great! Remembering which results I had already looked at could have been pretty hard.

      Short, sweet and useful.  Thanks!

      This would probably be a lot more exciting if it were not for the Resharper for C++ EAP :) That said, glad to see C++ getting some love, and I do like the use of code peek for refactoring results (which R# needs to steal).

      The new find facility looks good. Can you undo accidental deletes from the results pane?

      Regarding the first feature shown - implementing pure virtual functions. Just a nit pick - can you please drop the extra blank lines inserted between both the comments and the function definitions to the header file? I think that's look better.

      This is really exciting stuff. The new find in files is great and I love all the new refactoring options.

      @David Lowndes: You cannot undo accidental deletes, unfortunately. You'll just have to run the search again =P

      I'll make sure our devs consider the spacing suggestion!
      Update: I believe the spacing has been fixed; let us know when we release CTP4!

      Please allow addins to write to the Find Results window, so that they can take advantage of the new outlining & deleting features.

      Currently, "find-in-files-like" addins have to create their own "output" windows, which (probably) won't get the outlining & deleting.

      I have passed along your feedback to the appropriate VS team, though I don't know if they'll get around to it in an ideal timeframe for you >.<
