            Release Notes: This release is based on KDE4. A number of icons were exchanged with Oxygen icons. Session state for each debugged program is now stored in a section in $KDEHOME rather than in a .kdbgrc file in the program's directory. More accurate parsing of GDB responses of various commands fixed bugs in certain areas, in particular, temporary breakpoints, register values, truncated struct values, and disassembly (again). "View Code" from the breakpoint list can open the source code in more cases.

            How does this compare to DDD?
            Can anybody who has used both this program and DDD ( comment on the respective pros and cons of the products?

            Thanks //Johan
