Glimpse 1.8.6 released

Its that time again and we have another release ready to go. This one is mainly another patch/bug release, but it also a couple of nice things come to the table.

Glimpse Launcher
One of the biggest things to note is the addition of a new button to the `~/glimpse.axd` page. This button is designed to be a temporary fix to help those who have sites that contain only services. Currently its difficult for these users to launch Glimpse. In most cases it requires adding a dummy page to the site, so that Glimpse can be launched from that point. This new button allows the user to launches the client in fullscreen mode. From there, the history tab can be used to track requests.

Note, there is currently a limitation on this feature which means the client will only launch if Glimpse has already detected at least one request. If this limitation causes you any issues please let us know. Additionally, v2 of Glimpse will bring to the table first class support for services.

This release sees updates to following packages:

  • Glimpse.Core – Featherweight release 1.8.6
    • Add button which makes it easy to launch glimpse for service only sites
    • Improve how client renders for those using Zurb Foundation
  • Glimpse.AspNet – Featherweight release 1.9.1
    • Fix issue for ajax requests that are using “Bufferless input streams”
    • Show non-MvcRoute route types in route tab
  • Glimpse.WebForms – Featherweight release 1.1.1
    • Fix issue to make Glimpse checks if it is enabled in DataBoundControlAdapter
  • Glimpse.Ado – Featherweight release 1.7.2
    • Ensure ADO inspector does quotes `AnsiString` parameters in query output
    • Ensure that all parameters in `CreateDbCommandDefinition` are forwarded through
    • Prevent command sanitizer from replacing partial matches of parameters
