Diver 0.3.0 and Rails 3.0.3 Released
Reverse Tooling for Eclipse with Diver 0.3.0
Version 0.3.0 of Diver (Dynamic Interactive Views for Reverse Engineering) has been announced. Diver aims to make reverse engineering tools and techniques accessible to Eclipse developers, by using execution traces of running Java software to obtain a picture of what is going on at runtime. Diver is not intended to replace your current debugging and investigation techniques. Diver 0.3.0 can apply filters up-front, giving the user more control over which methods get called during execution, in an attempt to limit the trace sizes and reduce the time it takes to analyse the traces for use in Diver. Diver 0.3.0 can also now distinguish which method calls are unique to a particular trace, directly within the sequence diagram.
Pre-emptive Flattering with Auto-Flattr
Are you a project's or blog's biggest fan? Then this is an update for you; Flattr have added an auto-flattr subscription feature, which will automatically flattr something for the coming 3, 6 or 12 months. To activate this feature, flattr your object of choice, and then click the button again to select how many months you wish to subscribe for. Subscriptions can be viewed and cancelled form the dashboard.
Go Faster with Rails 3.0.3
Rails version 3.0.3 has been released with a version of Active Record that looks to reclaim some of the performance lost when Rails upgraded from 2.3.x to 3.x. Version 3.0.3 also comes with a list of fixes and new tests for uploaded files. There are no API changes from version 3.0.
