The GUI has undergone several major changes to better account for typical workflow patterns, and to make better use of the screen real estate.
Some key improvements are introduced below. Customers with active support can request a free WebEx training by contacting email@example.com.
The main navigation panel has been split into tabs. This frees up space,
notably for projects with dozens of analyses.
The navigation panel can also be folded away completely by double-clicking on
any tab, or using the green-arrow button at the bottom. This can come in handy
e.g. when viewing large statistics tables or browsing large graphs.
The buttons for running analyses have moved to the left-hand side,
underneath the new navigation tabs. They are now always found in this prominent position,
rather than being mashed up with the buttons at the top that are context-sensitive
to each screen.
Long analysis lists can be filtered using the new box at the bottom.
Analyses can now be grouped. The groups can be folded and unfolded,
sorted, and assigned names. Analyses can also be easily moved between groups
A new dropdown in the upper right corner enables quick navigation
between related views, e.g. a graph and its local AIS file.
In the Overview list, the analyses can now be sorted by type,
as well as by a unique numerical ID that doesn‘t change.
Analysis messages can now be viewed directly in the Graph and Information
views, so you no longer have to jump back and forth between
views when looking for a particular address mentioned in a message.
Locations mentioned in messages are now linked to
the call graph, disassembly, and C files via blue buttons with an @.
In the Graph view, recursive functions can now be highlighted using a dropdown in the toolbar.
This new view in the Information tab lists macros from source code, extracted from DWARF debug info if available.
In the DWARF view, searching for an address will now also look
for it inside global variables or functions. In the screenshot
above, for example, searching for the address
0x232c finds the variable
cmh in struct
The “Variable usage (context)” view now offers a context menu for jumping from a variable to the instructions that access it in the call graph or disassembly.
