Chronon 2.5 released

Posted by Prashant Deva on June 29, 2012

While we get Chronon 3 ready, we thought of making an interim release with some goodies our users have been asking for:

Chronon Recording Server

Recording Server is the highlight of this release, and contains the most voted feature from our users:

On Demand Split

Crs-splitrecording

Now when you encounter a bug while testing/QA, no longer do you have to wait for an ‘automatic split interval’ or do a ‘Stop Recording’ which results in a lengthy ‘deinstrumentation’ phase and then ‘Start Recording’ again (which will result in another lengthy ‘instrumentation’ phase).

Just click the new ‘Split Recording’ button and a recording is created instantly on disk and the recorder keeps running!

Here is a demo video demonstrating this feature:

Make sure you get the latest version of Recording Server now!

Chronon Time Travelling Debugger

Some enhancements based on user feedback:

Timeline View

Timelineview
  • An Id column has been added to allow easily referring to each time bookmark by an id, instead of a complex, lengthy ‘time’ value.
  • All columns are now sortable.

Exceptions View

Exceptionsview
  • An Id column has been added here too.

Dont forget to update your debugger!

Embedded Chronon and Chronon Recorder

Plenty of bugfixes and minor performance enhancements in the Chronon Recorder for users of Embedded Chronon and Chronon Recording Server.

If you were getting a corrupt recording when using either Embedded Chronon or Chronon Recording Server, these bugfixes should now prevent that.

Also for the first time we have updated the native agents too, from version 1.0 to 1.1.0.
