Release Notes

Important Note
If you were one of the first 100 people to download the new Snoop 2.7 update, you will need to download it again, uninstall, & then reinstall. We found and fixed a crash with delving collections!

It's been a while since the last release, but hopefully, you're going to love this one.

Most notably, Anvaka (Andrei Kashcha) has added support for dragging and dropping some crosshairs onto the application that you want to Snoop or Magnify. This means that you no longer have to wait for that combo box to refresh! In fact, I have removed the automatic refresh of the combo box on startup.

Another major improvement is that Snoop can now handle applications with multiple dispatchers.

Please take a look at the lists below for Features and Bug Fixes to see what else has been taken care of.

I want to call out special attention to Andrei Kascha and Maciek Rakowski for all the work they've done in this latest release. Thanks and kudos to you!

Reviews for this release

I love Snoop! Makes exploring the run-time state of an application a breeze. So well done. Thanks a lot!

Great application! Made my WPF debugging tasks much easier! Thanks folks. Installation went smoothly and the application runs so far so good on Win XP with VS2010

Select an application and click the "snoop" button. The selected application freezes; you can't move, resize or close the window. Nothing else happens. Close the snoop application; the selected application is still frozen. Only option is to kill the process from Task Manager. Win7 x64 SP1 VS2010 SP1 .NET 4.0 and .NET 3.5 SP1

Best tool for WPF in codeplex! When I am asked to help with an issue one of my first questions is have you installed snoop on this PC yet?

The previous version was very good, but this one ... Fantastic work ! It was worth the waiting. The drag & drop and the high res are just great. Thanks.
