You had a chance (!!??) to work with WinDBG with SOS.DLL extension for debugging .net applications.

Psscor2 provides a superset of SOS.DLL functionality, specially for ASP.NET application. I already used it in only ASP.NET based projects, so this improvements will help me a lot (I am prying for not to need it in real life scenarios).

Earlier I was using this command for listing all exceptions.

 .foreach (ex {!dumpheap -type Exception -short}){.echo "********************************";!pe -nested ${ex} }

It says; "list all types which has a name that contains ‘Exception’ word.";

Now with PSSCOR2; DumpAllExceptions (shorted as dae) command does the work.

!dae

For example, Psscor2 provides the ability to view:

  • managed call stacks (with source mappings)
  • managed exception information
  • what types are in the managed heap and their reference chain
  • which ASP.NET pages are running on which thread
  • the contents of the ASP.NET cache
  • and much more.

ScottGu’s announced about VS 2010 and .NET 4 Release Candidate releases. RC will be avaible in February.

The goal behind the Release Candidate is to ensure that performance problems in Beta2 are fixed and products are ready for RTM release.

ScottGu says this will postpone the RTM release a few weeks. I think every developer who will use this products can wait a few weeks for a high quality.
