Agenda and Notes

  • Status bu sub-group
    • SPIRIT (Anthony)
    • Memory (Samantha)
      • Ted posted a proposal for simplifying the workflow
      • Plan: go to address bar - waiting for updated patch which ties into rendering
      • Plan: remove
    • Disassembly (Mikhail)
    • DSF (Pawel)
      • Keepign APIs backward compatible.
      • Adding UI imrovments in views: stepping synchronized with view updates
    • GDB/MI (Pawel)
      • Support for latest GDB
    • Multi Context (Pawel)
      • Working on prototype for debug-view less debugging.
  • Discussion Topics
    • Merging with CDT
      • Time: after 1.1
      • Separate components for DSF, and DSF-GDB
    • CDI-GDB features not in DSF-GDB
      • Created a list of bugs with [cdi] in subject which identify features which are missing from DSF-GDB
      • We're asking the community to vote on features which are most important to them.
    • Memory: Ted's proposal
      • Removal of memory monitors pane
        • Enable the memory view layout to be configurable based on active debug context.
        • Investigate how to de-couple the rendering view pane from the selected memory monitor.
        • Investigate how to hide the split pane mode.
      • Go to address bar
        • Ted to post an update patch.
      • Update modes:
        • Memory blocks are shared between memory views, which makes it difficult to have different update modes.
    • Traditional memory rendering
      • Need to create a patch to evaluate it in context of debug platform.
