Announcing Alcon 3

Alcon 3 is in the works! The new version is being written for Adobe AIR and that means no more hackish OS integration! Thanks to AIR the debugging tool will run nice and smooth on any supported OS and it will restore your windows size and position where you last left it, Stay On Top works properly, auto-update etc. etc. etc.

Some of the new features besides the already existing Trace Command and File Loggers are a Memory Consumption and Frames-Per-Second Monitor, a completely new and improved Object Inspector that is finally useful for Debugging, an Options dialog to comfortably configure Alcon, proper AS2 support and a couple of other minorities here and there.

The progress moves on quick enough that I dare to say that the release date is only a few weeks away from now so sit tight, it’ll be there in a heartbeat.

    Well, without making any promises I’d say it’ll be ready next week. I had a little Raid 0 crash here inbetween. ;)

    If you’ve got a mailing list, I’d love to get notified when the new version is up and running.

    Hi Michael, so far there is no mailinglist and I doubt it is necessary. Just subscribe the RSS feed and I’m sure you won’t miss it. After it’s release Alcon will use auto-update so there’s even less chance to miss an update after that.
