Using Canvas and Visual Studio for Debugging

Microsoft this week released a new Visual Studio debugger through DevLabs, Microsoft's "testbed" for developer tools. The tool, which is called Debugger Canvas, involves using a new methodology for debugging applications that uses what Microsoft is calling Code Bubbles.

The way it works is that a developer is shown code for each of the methods they are using on a background canvas, each having call lines that form a call path that can be edited and browsed. In this fashion, the fragments of files are shown as "bubbles" on the canvas, and each bubble's code, which represents a member definition, is able to be edited.
