Trifinty Updates Bug Off With Speed Boosts

Trifinity Software has released an update for BugOff, bringing it to version 1.0.1. Bug Off is a utility designed for graphically debugging code written for PalmOS applications. The update features speed enhancements and new menu items. According to Trifinity Software:

Trinfinity Software released today an update to Bug Off, a graphical debugger for PalmOS and MacOS applications.

In 2003, Palm developers that use the Macintosh platform lost the most popular integrated development environment available to them. This left many developers with a difficult decision: try to find a replacement IDE, switch from the Macintosh platform that they know and love to the Windows platform, or stop developing for the PalmOS. Thankfully, a very powerful open source package of tools was available called PRC-Tools to take the place of the abandoned development environment.

The crafty developers devised a way to use Appleis free Xcode IDE to act as a graphical front end to the PRC-Tools package. This solved almost all of their problems, except for the debugger problem. There was no graphical front end to the command line debugger.

BugOff 1.0.1 includes numerous speed improvements and includes a new menu item which allows users to quickly get back to the current line of source code. BugOff 1.0.1 also includes documentation on creating Bug Off scripts to extend the functionality of the application and automate frequently used tasks.

You can find more information about the BugOff update at the Trifinity Software Web site. BugOff 1.0.1 is free for registered users, while the full version is available for US$29.95.
