I can't edit my previous comment, so here's a new one.

I need to apologize to 3Heap. I just found an email in my junk folder that announced 1.0 and included a discount code for 80% off. That is an acceptable upgrade path. I wish their twitter person had explained that to me better, I would have looked harder for such a code before making my comment here.

I stand corrected and will notify everyone again about my error. I do apologize for my prior comment and rating. I've given 5 stars to this version and will continued to do so as new versions are released to try and make up for the low rating I gave initially.

Caveat Emptor. The developers charged for the app while it was in Beta, then expected those who used it to pay AGAIN for the final release of 1.0. This is contrary to almost every other developer's method of charging during beta where the 1.0 release is given as part of the purchase to reward those who paid early, provided feedback, and helped promote the tool.

I am leery of purchasing the product again as this tactic left a horrible taste in my mouth. I wouldn't be surprised to see a version 1.5 will barely anything new require another purchase to obtain. Fool me once shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.

I apologize to everyone I convinced to purchase this app while it was still being developed. Had I known we would be treated this way and gouged for more money upon official release I would never have recommended it to you.

Codebug creator here.

I just wanted to say that your comments and claims are 100% false.
First, Codebug was never a beta product, since day one it was released as a stable product used by thousands of people with very few bugs in almost TWO years. And between version 0.1 and version 0.9.4 all the updates were FREE.

Secondly, everyone who upgraded to version 1.0 and already had purchased Codebug in the past got a 80% discount coupon. NOT a full new price license like you claim.

And between version 1.0 and 2.0 there will no upgrading costs at all.

I hope this clarifies all the lies this comment above states.

Finally, I can recommend that even new PHP developers bother to set up and install xdebug on their development machines, as Codebug finally allows even novices to tap into the debugging power of xdebug. Codebug brings simplicity (at last) to xdebug output, and provides a reasonable (and great looking) interface to the underside of your Web (PHP) application. I'm not affiliated with the developer, but I've been watching this software develop during the past few months, and I must say the 1.0 release has been worth the wait.
