- Integration in Visual Studio. Now, Visual Studio gets an integrated counterpart of Timeline Viewer with instant navigation from Call Tree to the source code.
- Console profiler accepts configuration via command-line arguments. As an alternative to providing profiling configuration in an XML file, you can do this via command-line arguments.
- Profiling of run configurations. dotTrace integrated in Visual Studio gets more profiling capabilities. Now, you can profile not only your startup project, but any 'run configuration' - a startup project, an arbitrary executable, or even any static method.
- Incoming HTTP requests profiling. Timeline Viewer offers the new Incoming HTTP Requests filter. Now you can get the exact data on how long a particular HTTP request is processed.
- Snapshot auto-deletion. It is possible to automatically delete old snapshots without having to manually take care of them each week or month.
- Updated Configuration2Xml tool. Profiling via the command line is back!
- SQL queries profiling. Timeline Viewer offers the new SQL Queries filter. Now you can get the exact data on how long a particular SQL query is executed as well as what method has run the query.
- Redesigned dotTrace Controller. dotTrace Controller is more neat and takes less space on the screen.
- Updated remote agent.
- Improved performance in Timeline Viewer.
- A completely new Timeline Profiling method that collects temporal call stack and thread state data about your application.
- Redesigned UI. Now, dotTrace interface consists of the three main components: dotTrace Home window, Performance Viewer, Timeline Viewer.
- Profiling sessions are configured and started in a new dotTrace Home window.
- More flexible subsystems. You can specify how the subsystem time should be handled: should it be shown separately, included into calling subsystems time, or not taken into account at all.
- Filtering of child processes. You can specify what child processes of an application should not be profiled.
- A new convenient way to search for bottlenecks via the Subsystems view
- Bookmarks for quick navigation between points of interest in a snapshot
