Sun Studio Express 3 (new GUI!)

The next preview release of the Sun Studio "Mars" release is available for download here. (We expect this will become Sun Studio 12, but you never know what the final name will be until the last minute. So I'm sticking with Mars.) The main nifty new feature is the new IDE which includes a new implementation of our debugger GUI, as well as integration with the Performance Analyzer GUI and the Thread Analyzer GUI (which used to be called the Data Race Detection Tool).

Other features from the README are new gcc and g++ compatibility features, and dwarf debugging format is now the default for all compilers (yay!) Also, the Linux compilers should be significantly improved, so if you're using those give this update a try.

The dwarf conversion is near and dear to my heart because I've been working on it for such a long time. Stay tuned for more details on that project.  Now that all the compilers are ported over I can start improving the quality of the information in dwarf, and get the benefits in all three languages (C, C++, Fortran 90).

If you have any questions or problems, as always, the Sun Studio forums are a good place to check out.
