Undo announced the immediate availability of Live Recorder 5.1, an updated version of its flagship product that now offers the ability to record the execution of applications written in Go.

Codenamed Beenleigh, this update brings huge changes to the market by further enabling software engineering teams to accelerate software defect resolution, even for the most complex application architectures.

With the release of Beenleigh, Live Recorder can now record the execution history of applications written in Go and capture software failures in the act - thereby eliminating the guesswork in software defect diagnosis. Software engineers speed up defect diagnosis by loading the recording of the failure in their usual GoLand IDE and Delve debuggers to step through the recording forwards and backwards using Live Recorder’s reverse-debugging capability.

“The Go programming language has seen its market share double in the past two years - with modern SaaS companies like Uber, Google and Twitch taking up Go as their development language of choice for mission-critical applications,” said Undo CTO Greg Law. “However, the software engineering ecosystem for Go has not kept pace. Beenleigh changes this by giving Go developers a new and better way to reproduce, diagnose and resolve defects that they could not do before with traditional methods and tooling.”

Beenleigh also enhances the Multi-Process Correlation of Shared Memory capability with Fast Switch support where multiple recordings can be loaded in the same debugging session and engineers can jump from one process to another without losing their place in the previous recording file. This helps developers to dramatically reduce the time spent on diagnosing defects in complex multi-process programs.
