Microsoft's Debugger Canvas Visual Debugging Tool Gets Tested

Microsoft Research recently announced its visual application debugging tool called Debugger Canvas. The debugger, which only works on Visual Studio 2010, visually displays functions as bubbles, sort of like a database diagram.

Other Microsoft Research projects have become official Microsoft releases, including Xbox Kinect, which itself is growing into more than just a gaming tool.
