Release Notes

This release includes several bug fixes (see below) ... but most notably there is now one version of Snoop again, not four ... and Snoop is smart enough to Snoop applications regardless of whether the application has been built on top of WPF 3.5 or WPF 4.0 ... or whether the application is a 32-bit application or a 64-bit application.

Special thanks goes out to Bruno Martinez for this contribution.

As always, Happy Snooping!

invaluable herramienta de aprendizaje, solo basta snoopear el vs2o1o o el expression blend para entender su alcance...

Thank you very much. You cannot imagine how helpful Snoop is. This tool should really be part of Visual Studio 2010! There is no better way to debug binding errors.

Excellent way to debug visual attributes in a WPF application.

This is an amazingly useful utility -- it's basically Spy++ for WPF! I can't believe I never heard of Snoop until I saw it casually mentioned in Matthew MacDonald's "Pro WPF in C# 2010". You guys need better PR!
