VLD released

I just released a new version of VLD through PECL. This release features the path analytics code that I've outlined in an earlier article. There are also a few fixes for PHP's current trunk, as well as the possibility to format output slightly like a CSV file. That feature was used to make this documentation of opcodes.

The path analysis algorithm that VLD now has, can possibly also be used to get path/branch coverage working within Xdebug's code-coverage framework. This is however not a minor task.

Awesome, I think I first learned about VLD on Sara Golemon's blog and it sounded really interesting. Thanks for the cool PHP toys :)
