Yes, it's dead.

It takes a massive amount of effort just to keep up with the changes to the language and build system Microsoft is doing, probably at least 2 man-years to catch up to C# 7 / the .NET Core stuff. That's a bit too much for a hobby project -- we don't have that kind of free time anymore, and even if we did, there are better ways to spend it than playing catch-up with a huge dev team at Microsoft.

Combine that with the free community edition, and there's little space for multiple open-source C# IDEs.
Remember that MonoDevelop is still around; and that VS Code is also open-source! Start with one of those if you need a portable IDE.

Yeah vs community is great, is almost perfect, but it isn't low weight as SD (45mb), it isn't portable and it isn't fast as SD for old PC...
I loved use SD in my old laptop or at school thanks to the fact that it can run via usb.

Anyway i will accept the decision of the developers and i hope they can get the best from their next projects, they have gifted me many hours of fun during the years! Thanks to all of them <3

@dgrunwald If the project is dead, would you possibly consider putting a note indicating such in a prominent location on this repo or the project's homepage?

Many people including myself like what you (I assume you) have created, but if the project has no life and no future, it would be greatly appreciated if that was formally communicated up-front so people don't waste their time.

Thanks for your consideration.

If it wasn't for SharpDevelop my company would have never been able to happen, literally!! In the early '00s, there was no better open solution for a startup. It spun off the fork, MonoDevelop, and brought so much to the community. Please don't give up hope.
I was really looking forward to the continuous efforts on SharpReports. Once again, an amazing open utility with potential.

All you folks on the #develop team have and had some amazing visions. don't ever give that up.

@subchannel13, not here to argue history but double check your dates. .NET 1.0 official released January 2002 (early 2000s). C# 2.0 released, 2005 (mid-2000s). These guys helped open the door to better IDEs and forerunners of open source .NET.

Ref: #Dev History.

SharpDevelop can start very fast, even with traditional hard disk.

So sad, SD is my favorite C# IDE, it is faster than VS, I hope someday the project continues, but thanks guys for this awesome work.

Guys, are you serious? It doesn't matter if VS starts in 10 more seconds or takes 0.5 sec more time for loading some file until it's way way more productive, due to plugins/ecosystem/newer language versions/support/younameit. Don't be so greedy, it doesn't worth it.

Is there possible to replace SharpDevelop with Visual Studio Code with C# plugins to support legacy non Core (.NET 4.6) projects? Both Intellisense, refactoring and build should be supported.

SharpDevelop itself is buggy.

The only kill feature is their license.

I'd like to extend a special thank you to the team who produced this product. As a hobby developer it has been invaluable for experimenting with code. Given that the latest version has only 3000 downloads and will take two years to catch up then I can understand to understand why is is deprecated.

Currently I'm having a problem with a debug error appearing when I try to "Add Resource". I suspect it is to do with the latest Windows updates. So I am forced to move to the Community edition of Visual Studio.

But once again thanks. I have truly enjoyed using SharpDevelop. Your contribution to the Open Source community has been invaluable.
