Microsoft's Debugger Canvas Visual Debugging Tool Gets Tested

It was released by Microsoft Research as a prototype so other developers could test it out, provide feedback, and hopefully contribute to its eventual inclusion within Visual Studio.

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