DevTools Protocol Version 0.2 Release Notes

Note

Version 0.2 of the Microsoft Edge DevTools Protocol works only on the Windows 10 October 2018 Update and later Windows Insider Preview builds.

Version 0.2 of the Microsoft Edge DevTools Protocol provides a preview for testing EdgeHTML instrumentation and basic remote debugging in the new standalone Microsoft Edge DevTools Preview app. As such, it requires you to be running the Windows 10 October 2018 Update or a later Windows Insider Preview build.

The goals behind the DevTools Protocol are three-fold:

  • Provide a public API for our DevTools app to attach to Microsoft Edge
  • Expand access of DevTools functionality to external tooling clients
  • Enable remote debugging across the range of Windows 10 devices running Micrsoft Edge

Version 0.2 of the DevTools Protocol includes new domains for style and layout (read-only) debugging and console APIs, in addition to the core script debugging functionality introduced in Version 0.1. In the Edge DevTools UI, this translates to functionality available in the Elements, Console and Debugger panels.
