Eclipse Trace Compass™ 2.1.0
Trace Compass 2.1 is a minor release that ships with the Neon.1 update release.
The project leadership certifies that the APIs in this release are "Eclipse Quality".
The release is a small increment of our previous 2.0.0/Neon release. There are no architectural changes.
There are no security issues.
Trace Compass documentation is kept up-to-date for added and changed features. The developer and user guides are available as Eclipse help plug-ins and are part of the installable features. The latest released versions are also available on the Eclipse Foundation's web page.
A number of new features of this release aim to improve usability:
- Open XML Editor for data-driven analysis
- Progress bar for indexing of CTF traces to give user feedback
- Use same mouse actions in XY graphs than in Time Graph views
We have no end-of-life issues to discuss at this time.
A few API has been deprecated. New APIs have been added for later replacement. They will be removed for the 3.0 release for Oxygen.
Trace Compass comes with multipe built-in trace parsers for the following standard:
GDB traces for debugging
Best Trace Format for OSEK
The libpcap (PAcket CAPture) format, for network traces
Trace Compass provides a remote tracer control for LTTng Kernel and UST Tracers for configuring of trace sessions. It supports the MI versions 2.0 and 3.0.
