Cloning of Visualizer view

CDT now supports the cloning of Visualizer views. A clone button was added to the Visualizer, which permits creating new instances of the visualizer view. At the moment it can be used with the Multicore Visualizer filtering feature to have different MV views show strategic subsets of the current system being debugged. In the future, such cloning will be even more useful in conjunction with the upcoming pinning feature.

Here we show the Multicore Visualizer with its new "clone" button:


Here we have a MV that has been cloned twice:


Finally we have the same MV views as the previous screenshot, but with a bit of customization of the visualizers - Load meters were enabled on the MV on the left, and filtering was enabled on the two MVs on the right, to show subsets of the current threads


This feature was completed through Bug 436095.


CDT 8.5 requires JRE 1.7 or higher to run.

CDT 8.5 requires Eclipse 4.4 or higher to run.
