So here is whats new in this release:
Release 0.4, 2008-06-09
-> Added support for watching values that are bigger than the
maximum number of bytes a single watchpoint can watch. For example,
types double or long long on IA32; an array of size 32 on X86_64.
In these cases, frysk allocates multiple debug registers to watch
over the same expression.
-> Smaller memory foot-print when generating stack backtraces.
Frysk has been changed to more aggressively release memory
allocated by the unwinder.
-> New capability to pass args via the "load" command and when
fhpd is first started i.e., "$[/home/xxx] fhpd ls -la". The
/bin/ls command is loaded and the parameter "-la" will be passed
when a "start" or "run" command is issued with no overriding
parameters. Also, on subsequent runs, "-la" is always used unless
other parameters are entered with the "run" or "start" command.
(This was bz #6515/6536).
-> Support was added for fully-qualified symbol notation using the
standard HPD "#" syntax (e.g. "#libc.so.6#malloc"). Ftrace now
uses this notation to communicate with the user in both directions,
FHPD recognizes the syntax although can't handle it yet.
-> Fix Hover-over variable does not show variable value(bz #6484).
-> Created a new command line utility: fdebugdump. fdebugdump dumps
a hierarchical view of the debug info tags in an executable. Future
improvements could include dumping the debug info live as libraries
are mapped in.
-> Bugs fixed http://sourceware.org/bugzilla/:
5254: stepping engine, fhpd, and breakpoints are not in sync
5557: testcase: watch 1 byte address

6531: Low level hardware watchpoint support should check, and reject,
incorrectly aligned addresses
6532: Do not check watchpoints in Running|Stepping.handleTrapped if
software /ISA does not support watchpoints
6533: Watchpoint addition failure should not raise an exception, but
should instead call .addFailed() callback
6535: fexe not working for scripts
6551: Watch support for variables bigger than max length of a single
6554: Separate watch observer(s) installer from hpd
6555: Notify if available h/w watchpoints not enough to watch
