WinDbg不同版本间的主要差异

近一两年来,WinDbg的版本更新差不多每月都有,这种速度也侧面证明了微软内部对WinDbg的重视,否则不会升级这么快吧?而且可以看出其发展是和微软的其它技术发展同步的。比如DotNet热时WinDbg的那几个版本加了很多对调试托管代码的支持,64位热时,WinDbg便加入对WOW64的支持。无疑微软的很多内部团队也在使用WinDbg做调试。当他们发现问题或有新的要求时就会让WinDbg改正或加入。

版本升级这么快,有时真的不知道每个版本到底有什么变化,该不该升级?还好微软的站点上有一个简单的列表关于每个版本的变化。但这个LISt已经不包括6.2以前的版本(大约是05年3月)了。说不定现在包括的版本过几个月也不见了。赶紧贴过来吧!

Highlights in Version 6.3.17

The following changes have been made to Debugging Tools for Windows:

Support for the next generation of Microsoft Windows codenamed "Longhorn".

New user interface (UI) management capabilities in WinDbg.

Many improvements to the !analyze extension.

This allows you to conditionally execute commands or even pipe the output of one command into another. New control flow tokens include .foreach, .do, .for, .while, .if, .elsif, .else, .catch, .break, .continue, and .leave. Aliases are used as the "local variables" in these programs.

Multiple new options for setting aliases.

Numerous bug fixes to various commands and extensions reported by customers.

WinDbg now features enhanced UI management capabilities. Support for window docking, window tear-off, and window tabs has been added to allow users more flexibility in configuring the user interface.

Some features of the new WinDbg UI include:

Window docking
Windows that are part of the frame are "tied" to the frame, and stretch and shrink when the main debugger window frame is changed.

Window tear-off
WinDbg windows can "float" outside the frame and do not change or move when the main WinDbg frame is moved. Windows that are torn off the main frame are still child windows of WinDbg, and are minimized and maximized with the frame and do not show up on the task bar.

Window tabs
Docked windows can be tabbed together, allowing multiple windows to be layered while providing easy access to the windows under the currently visible one.

Tips for using the new WinDbg UI:

At startup, all WinDbg UI windows are in an "undocked" state. To dock the window, double-click it or drag it into the main WinDbg frame window.

To tab a window, drag the window to the other window to which you want to tab it, moving the mouse to the center of the window. Drop it when you see the outline of the dragged window match the frame of the other window. Switch between the tabbed windows by pressing CTRL+TAB.

For full details, see the Debugging Tools for Windows help file.
