  • 2.5 is a big step up from 2.0

    by David Li,

    2.0 was barely usable for me. Performance degradation is pretty bad and it was more of a nuisance rather than a tool. 2.5 Improved on all of it yet the beta version could not detect linked libraries very well and caused false alarms, but I am sure RTM should have fixed the bugs.
