@Ashley, loving the new debugger. This will make life much easier.

I have been using it today already and it is performing better than I expected.

It would be nice if we could filter what is displayed, at the moment it is a lot of information. For example I might just want to see my globals and a few instance variables.

Or highlight maybe?

My hope is for Debugger events, for example, Call a Debug.pause so the project halts at that spot. Or a Debug.Watch to see if an event is firing. But I imagine he's already got that in the plan.

Yes setting a breakpoint would be an invaluable addition

I love the debugger but its currently not possible to work with it (for me)

Because:

You cant use him in an exported html5 site. And my whole Game needs Ajax request.. And they just work in the exported files ...

It would be amazing if you could export the debugger.

Hi,

yes great addition. Nice to be able to look inside Arrays and at the webstorage too.

Cant seem to see my global variables though for some reason.spongehammer2013-08-08 09:40:09

I must have missed something...when did the debugger come out? I have the latest version and can't remember seeing anything about this anywhere.
