ANNOUNCE: DDD 3.3.12-rc1 (Latrigg)

The last official release of DDD, 3.3.11, was made on 16th March 2005, well over three years ago.

But, DDD developers have not been idle.

Rocky Bernstein in particular has done some great work in his "pydb" branch.  DDD can now be used effectively in debugging Python programs (pydb), Bash scripts (bashdb) and Makefiles (remake)...

So, I'd like to announce the immediate availability of a release candidate, ddd-3.3.12-rc1.  You can download it via ftp from

Please grab it, compile (./configure && make && make install) and test.  We are ready to receive bug reports as always on our bug tracker at

We'd like to hear about your experience with the new debugger facilities.

But, it's just as important to know of any regressions before we put out a new version.  Is there anything that used to work in 3.3.11 which doesn't work now?  With the extensive changes which have been made there's almost sure to be something, and now's the chance to get it fixed.
