Just noticed today that Performance Profiler v7 appeared on the roadmap in Q4 (or maybe it's been there all along, and I just missed it).
Any chance line level timings are going to make it in that release? According to the roadmap, it'll be focussed on Silverlight anyway
If you aren't sure yet, I'd like to make a desperate plea to do so. Silverlight is one of those environments where even little optimizations can make a difference.
As long as you do fancy looking my-menu-is-a-carousel or mediaplayer applications, you're ok. But when utilizing Silverlight for business applications (of which is more than capable), you can hugely benefit from little, to even minor optimizations. Even down to the level of using floats instead of doubles (in all fairness though: the application at hand was an extreme example).
Point is: Mini, and micro optimizations in Silverlight are beneficial, but they're very hard to track down, with only method level timings. Silverlight is still one of those environments where achieving the desired result can be quite a battle, if you want something more than your run-of-the-mill application. Any tool that aids in that battle is welcomed.
If the software doesn't have to work, you can always meet any other requirement.
