Decoda 1.12 released

Decoda 1.12 is now available for download. This turned out to be a huge patch with lots of bug fixes, big and small. If you have auto-updates enabled, Decoda will automatically detect the update and download it (you can also manually do this by selecting Help/Check For Updates from the menu). Otherwise grab and run the latest installer from here.

Here’s the change list for Decoda 1.12:

  • Added a Breakpoints window for viewing all breakpoints in the project
  • Added an error message when a SCC plugin could not be initialized
  • Added Help menu option to go to support information
  • Improved the performance of removing tabs from large files
  • Changed breakpoints to be stored in the .deuser file rather than the .deproj file
  • Changed the "Add New File" dialog to use source control’s local path as the default if the project has not yet been saved
  • Changed the Find/Replace dialog to update when Ctrl-F/Ctrl-H is pressed with text selected in the editor
  • Changed Debug menu accelerators to be consistent with Microsoft Visual Studio
  • Fixed compatibility with SCC plugins that don’t allow multi-threaded access (fixes Perforce SCC)
  • Fixed compatibility with applications where the lua_newstate function was optimized away by the compiler (uses luaL_newstate instead)
  • Fixed issue where the output of luac could not always be clicked on in the output window to go to the correct line
  • Fixed bug where Decoda would hang when debugging applications that were not loaded at the default load address (fixes problems with 64-bit Vista)
  • Fixed bug where Decoda did not call SccCloseProject on SCC plugins
  • Fixed bug where symbols were not properly parsed from files when there was no project loaded
  • Fixed bug where breakpoints would move the previous line when a file was closed and then opened again
  • Fixed bug where an application being debugged would hang if Decoda was closed while at a breakpoint
  • Fixed occasional crash or hang in the debugee when detaching the Decoda debugger
  • Fixed bug where breakpoints were not always properly moved when inserting or deleting lines of text
  • Fixed bug where breakpoints inserted in an edited file during debugging could become hidden, unremovable or otherwise out sync with the modified file
  • Fixed bug where a SCC plugin could crash Decoda on shutdown
  • Fixed crash bug if the user canceled selecting a source control project in the Project Settings window
  • Fixed bug where the source control status for a file was not updated in the project when it was added using Project/Add Existing File
  • Fixed bug where the auto-updater would sometimes append bogus data to the files that were updated
  • Fixed bug where the "Go To Line" dialog locates the cursor after the selected line
  • Fixed bug where double-clicking a line in search output locates cursor after the line listed
  • Fixed bug where a file automatically loaded during debugging could be "undone" so there was no text in the file
  • Fixed bug where closing an open file that had changes without saving would not properly undo modifications to the line mapping and breakpoints
  • Fixed bug where inserting a new line at the beginning of a line wouldn’t properly move breakpoints down with the line
  • Fixed bug where the line number displayed in the call stack window was off by one
  • Fixed bug where the line numbers in the Call Stack window didn’t reflect any modifications to files made during a debugging session
  • Fixed bug where the current line marker would disappear after closing and then opening the file where execution had stopped
