Windbg released

A new version of the Debugging Tools for Windows appeared, quietly as usual, on Microsoft’s web site a few days ago.

Unfortunately the debugging symbols package for Windows XP SP3 is still MIA, presumably being delayed along with widespread SP3 availability on the Download Center and Windows Update. My local symbol store has grown quite obese with all the SP2 patches over the years so I’m looking forward to clean things up once that’s available.

Nothing too exciting in the RELNOTES.TXT for this release. Integrated managed debugging remains dysfunctional so the trusty remains in place for that. Can’t even get SOS to break on an application’s Main method. The most exciting feature is enhancements to the “dt” command.
