Agenda and Notes

  • Status bu sub-group
    • SPIRIT (Anthony)
    • Memory (Samantha)
    • Disassembly (Mikhail)
    • DSF (Pawel)
    • GDB/MI (Pawel)
    • Multi Context (Pawel)
  • Discussion Topics
    • DD 1.1 Release
    • Merging with CDT
      • DSF and GDB moving to CDT
      • Memory may move to Platform, if not it can move to CDT as well,
      • IP-XACT Editor
        • Anthony not available to work on it except maybe answer questions
        • ARM is looking for a new resource to work on this, will need to have it to move the component to the incubator project
        • Otherwise we will need to archive this component.
      • Need to follow up on Veenu's status
    • Debug Context Breadcrumb Demo
      • Breadcrumb is limited showing active context, there is not indication when something else changes, like another thread suspending.
      • Samantha: we could make the Debug view turn into a breadcrumb when the view is small.
      • Darin: having the breadcrumb in the variables view would also help in debugging without the debug view, it would also place all the data in one locaation.
      • Darin: It may be useful to have the drop down open at the instruction pointer location.
      • Is a breadcrumb feature itself useful enough by itself:
        • Most: yes
        • Darin: needs to try it out
        • Mikhail: what is the goal of the feature?
          • Pawel: main primary motivation make it possible to debug w/o debug view.
        • Samantha: need to be able to quickly see the full context of the debugger
      • Where to place the breadcrumb?
        • Pawel: on the status bar to follow UI conventions, but it's not without problems.
        • Randy: put it into each view (variables, registers, etc.)
        • Darin: toolbar (This should be possible, i.e. make the contribution to main toolbar instead of coolbar).
        • Mikhail: visible from any view, then be able to pin view.
      • Conclusion: let's try it out and see how it fits.
      • Create a feature patch plugin and post it on update site.
