Prepare for part two

Few weeks ago, i announced the current work on version two and requested some help for alpha testing. First of all, i like to thank you so much for the great feedback and responses to my help request.

I started the work on a new version of my software, since i realized some architectural issues with the public debugger version known as xn.debug beta 1.3. The whole basic implementation of the __debug() function in PHP was reworked to increase the performance and to get more realistic usage statistics.

Improved compatibility

The first three weeks are gone and the debugger was downloaded over 34 times. I was very impressed by the feedback of the users. The first task in the project tracker (https://sourceforge.net/tracker/?group_id=311535) was also the first patch to this work. We improved the compatibility of this project together, by implementing the support of "short_open_tag = Off" (recommended PHP setting to avoid conflicts with XML files). Many thanks at this point!... read more
