Most Recent Major Features and Changes

The What’s New section includes major features and changes that have been made in the last 12-18 months. For older news or more details about minor updates and changes, please refer to our changelog.

Time Travel Debugger now displays console logs, live comments and identifier expressions (25 Nov 2021)

Time Travel Debugger now displays console logs, live comments and identifier expressions. Previously Wallaby debugger was hiding the logs (to inspect runtime values during time-travel debug sessions you need to select the expression or variable that you want to view). Now when the currently debugged line is a console log, a line with a live comment, or an identifier expression, then the current value gets logged and is available for inspection inline as well as in Value Explorer and Output Inspector.

Output Inspector for JetBrains IDEs (22 Nov 2021)

Output Inspector is now available for JetBrains editors. It provides an ergonomic and convenient way of inspecting logged values and error details in a rich editor-friendly manner. Information is displayed in a code editor window, providing rich keyboard support and allowing you to stay in your coding mindset so that you don’t lose your flow.

VS Code Run On Save Indicators (07 Oct 2021)

The latest version of Wallaby for VS Code now shows coverage indicators for the last test run when run on save is enabled. This behavior can be changed with the VS Code setting, wallaby.runOnSaveIndicators.

Wallaby App - Improved Automatic Test Selection (23 Sep 2021)

Wallaby App’s automatic test selection has been improved. Previously test selection would automatically focus on the first failing test regardless of test filtering. Now, test selection will only focus on filtered tests when a filter is applied.

VS Code Open Diff Setting (17 Sep 2021)

Wallaby for VS Code provides a new setting to control where the diff view is opened. The default is to open the diff view in the first view column. You may instead configure diff views to open in the active (current) view column or beside the current view column.

VS Code Interactive Tutorial (26 Aug 2021)

Wallaby’s new interactive tutorial is ideal for showing new users how to use Wallaby. The tutorial may also be used by existing users who want to learn how to use new features when they become available.
