Firebug 1.11 alpha 2

Friday, August 24th, 2012 has Firebug 1.11a2

Firebug 1.11a2 fixes 14 issues.

One nice little fix is related to console.table() method.

Firebug is now displaying horizontal scrollbar if there is too much columns (issue 5832).

This method is quite powerful in rendering tabular data and also flexible regarding the input structure.

Check it out by executing the following expression in the command line (assume there are some scripts on the current page):

Our team is already working on Firebug 1.11 and the first alpha is now available for download.

This release fixes 21 issues and introduces also several nifty enhancements.

  • The HTML panel displayes doc type even for iframes (issue 4626)

  • The Net panel indicates when SPDY protocol is in action (issue 5324)

  • Event logs (see more about DOM event logging) are automatically linked with the target (issue 5803).

  • Command Line API improved: $x(xpath, contextNode, resultType) This command returns an array of HTML or XML elements matching the given XPath expression (contextNode and resultType arguments are new, issue 18)

Also, if you experienced some problems with the Firebug Start Button that should be automatically available in Firefox toolbar, try this version. A patch is included fixing these problems.
