New WinDbg available in preview!

We are excited to announce a preview version of a brand new WinDbg. We’ve updated WinDbg to have more modern visuals, faster windows, a full-fledged scripting experience, built with the easily extensible debugger data model front and center. I’ll start this by saying that WinDbg Preview is using the same underlying engine as WinDbg today, so all the commands extensions and workflows you’re used to will still work just as they did before.

Getting started
I know a lot of you are going to want to dive right in and try it out, so here are the things you should know before doing so.
Installation – You can install the WinDbg Preview from the Store if you have Windows 10 Anniversary Update or newer at https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/store/p/windbg/9pgjgd53tn86 – WinDbg Preview uses some features from the Windows 10 Anniversary Update, so that’s required for now. The Windows Store lets us release bug fixes and updates to you faster than we’ve ever been able to before, so make sure to stayed tuned to our blog and MSDN to learn the latest about the preview.
Feedback – Familiarize yourself a bit with the Feedback Hub! We’ve still got a long way to go before we cover all WinDbg features, and we’ll be using the Feedback Hub to help us prioritize what you want us to work on. The Windows Insider website has a great overview on how to give good feedback – https://insider.windows.com/en-us/how-to-feedback. Once you’ve read that, just hit the ‘Feedback Hub’ button on the home ribbon.
Questions – You’re bound to have a lot of questions, so feel free to post them on this blog post, send feedback in the Feedback Hub or tweet @aluhrs13 and I’ll do my best to answer. We’ll be posting an FAQ on our blog sometime in the upcoming weeks.
Documentation – We’ve got some early documentation up on MSDN that’s preliminary and subject to change at https://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/p/?linkid=854349. You can give us feedback or propose edits to that documentation by hitting “Comments” or “Edit” on any page. Also keep your eyes on our MSDN blog for more updates and tips.
Videos – We went to the Channel 9 studio and recorded a couple episodes of Defrag Tools to help explain some of the basics of WinDbg Preview.
Defrag Tools #182 – Tim, Chad and I go over the basics of WinDbg Preview and some of the features
Defrag Tools #183 – Nick, Tim and Chad use WinDbg Preview and go over a quick demo
Coming Soon – Bill and Andrew walk through the scripting features in WinDbg Preview

What’s New
There are a lot of major changes, some of them under the hood and some of them really obvious. Here are my favorites or the things that people have told me they like the best.
Less intimidating
One of the words people often use to describe WinDbg is “intimidating.” When you first open it, you get a dull gray screen and very little indication of what to do next. Once you’re going outside of the stepping icons, it’s difficult to tell what toolbar button or menu is what you want. With WinDbg Preview, we’ve taken a few steps to make it a bit easier for beginners.

Ribbon – Ribbons are great when icons don’t do a great job of describing an action and when there are a lot of different contextual actions that are only sometimes relevant. Right now our ribbon is pretty barebones with the basics, but over time we’ll be adding more ribbons for specific contexts while you’re debugging.
Re-worked file menu – The new file menu makes it much more clear which options you have for starting and configuring your debugging session. The attach dialog is much cleaner and more organized now and, there’s even a new option to launch your Store App or background tasks without needing to set it up with PLMDebug.exe.
Familiar source windows – Source windows now are better in pretty much every way and should look more like the source windows you’re used to seeing in every other modern editor.
Quality of life improvements
WinDbg has gone a long time without any major quality of life improvements or modernizations. This has led a lot of people to doing registry hacks to get a prettier theme, or having a dozen icons pinned to their taskbar for each thing they debug often. We’ve taken some of these work-arounds and made them easy to access.

Dark theme – This one is pretty self-explanatory. A lot of people use dark themes in their editors and then flip over to the glaring brightness of WinDbg. Now it can match!
Recent targets – Instead of having to have your KDNET key and IP on a sticky-note on your monitor, WinDbg Preview will now remember all your recent sessions and some of the settings that you had during that session. You can quickly access them again from the recent targets list in the file menu.
Various window improvements – Many windows have gone a while without updates or just have glaring bugs. Some of the notable things we’ve done differently are that the disassembly window keeps its highlighting in the right spot when scrolled, and the memory window has better highlighting and scrolling. Many windows are also asynchronous now and loading can be cancelled by running another command.
Data model front and center
Hopefully you’ve heard about the debugger data model by now. If you haven’t check out some of my older blog posts and our MSDN docs linked above. Up until now, the data model was only accessible through JavaScript and the dx command. With WinDbg Preview, we’re putting the data model under the vast majority of what you see, making it much more extensible.

Extensible locals and watch – The data model is now powering the locals and watch windows. NatVis and JavaScript extensions that extend the data model will be reflected in those windows. You can even put LINQ queries into the watch window!
Model windows – There’s a new type of window called a model window. Model windows will show the results of any model query in a normal hierarchy view or a table. You’ll see in the FAQ that WinDbg Preview doesn’t have a modules window, but you can use a model window to make your own with @$cursession.Modules! This also has the benefit that if you make a JavaScript extension that extends modules, it’ll automatically update your window.
Built-in scripting environment – One of the biggest complaints with scripting and extending the debugger is having to go into an IDE to write and iterate on it. With WinDbg Preview you can write and execute your JavaScript and NatVis directly from the debugger. The script window has error highlighting, IntelliSense and easier execution of scripts.
Restrictions and other things worth noting
While we’ve got that big list of what’s new and awesome, this is still a preview, so there’s some things that you should be aware of:
At this point in the preview, we’re only offering WinDbg Preview through the Windows Store. That means only devices running Windows 10 Anniversary Update can install it.
You might hit errors when trying to do something that requires elevation. You’ll have to manually launch WinDbg Preview elevated.
The concept of a workspace is going to be changing a lot. A workspace in WinDbg Preview is vastly different from one in WinDbg. The MSDN documentation linked above has more information.
That’s where we are today. The core experiences are there and we’ll be releasing improvements faster than our normal pace now that we’re shipping from the Windows Store. Please don’t hesitate to send us feedback and feature requests in the Feedback Hub or in the comments below. We want your input as we move forward!

For Sale – Open to offers – Lots of parts – i7 860, 8gb ddr3, Gigabyte 7970, XFX 5850, OCZ 600W, + more

EDIT: I’m open to offers

Hi there, I have quite a few items for sale. All the parts are in good working condition, I look after my stuff. Most items will have the original box and all / most additional stuff inside. There is no warranty for left for the items. Photos for all items are included. Please bear in mind that the parts are all used (apart from a few items), and although I have cleaned them as well as I could, there could be still some dust left.

I would like to sell as many parts together as possible, so at the moment I want to see if there any bulk offers.

Delivery is not included in prices. I need to see how big and heavy parcel will be to try to price it. Delivery costs are to be confirmed.

During working hours I might be slow to reply, please bear that in mind. Also dispatching can take a day or two as I need to organise boxes to ship items in.

I’m after a quick and painless sale, please no new members. I would rather deal with regulars here.

Reasonable offers welcome.

Hortonworks extends IaaS offering on Azure with Cloudbreak

This blog post is co-authored by Peter Darvasi, Engineer, Hortonworks.

We are excited to announce the availability of Cloudbreak for Hortonworks Data Platform on Azure Marketplace. Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP) is an enterprise-ready, open source Apache Hadoop distribution. With Cloudbreak, you can easily provision, configure, and scale HDP clusters in Azure. Cloudbreak is designed for the following use cases:

  • Create clusters which you can fully control and customize to best fit your workload
  • Create on-demand clusters to run specific workloads, with data persisted in Azure Blob Storage or Azure Data Lake Store
  • Create, manage, and scale your clusters intuitively using Cloudbreak UI, or automate with Cloudbreak Shell or API
  • Automatically configure Kerberos and Apache Knox to secure your cluster

When you deploy Cloudbreak, it installs a “controller” VM which runs the Cloudbreak application. You can use the controller to launch and manage clusters. The following diagram illustrates the high-level architecture of Cloudbreak and HDP on Azure:

image

Cloudbreak lets you manage all your HDP clusters from a central location. You can configure your clusters with all the controls that Azure and HDP have to offer, and you can automate and repeat your deployments with:

  • Infrastructure templates for specifying compute, storage, and network resources in the cloud
  • Ambari blueprints for configuring Hadoop workload
  • Custom scripts that you can run before or after cluster creation

In addition, Cloudbreak on Azure features the following unique capabilities:

  • Easily install Cloudbreak by following a UI wizard on Azure Marketplace
  • Choose among Azure Blob Storage, Azure Data Lake Store, as well as Managed Disks attached to the cluster nodes to persist your data
  • Follow a simple Cloudbreak wizard to automate the creation of an Azure Active Directory Service Principal for Cloudbreak to manage your Azure resources
  • Enable high availability with Azure Availability Set
  • Deploy clusters in new or existing Azure VNet

Getting started

  • Go to Azure Marketplace and follow the wizard to install Cloudbreak. 
  • Once deployment is succeeded, retrieve the public DNS name for the Cloudbreak VM. 

image

  • Open https with the DNS name, and you will see a browser warning. This is because by default there is no certificate set for this https site. You can still continue to your Cloudbreak web UI and follow the wizard to provision clusters. We recommend that you set up a valid certificate and disable public IP in a production environment.

Power BI Report Server August 2017 Preview now available | Microsoft Power BI Blog | Microsoft Power BI

Greetings from SQLSaturday in Vancouver, Canada!

Today, we’re excited to release a preview of the next version of Power BI Report Server. This preview release contains some great new self-service BI capabilities, including support for data sources other than SQL Server Analysis Services and viewing and interacting with Excel Workbooks.

Download Power BI Report Server August 2017 Preview!

Publish Power BI reports with imported data

The June 2017 version of Power BI Report Server gave users the ability to create and publish Power BI reports on-premises by connecting to SQL Server Analysis Services data sources. Since then, we’ve heard repeatedly from customers about their need to publish Power BI reports created against other data sources and are pleased to give you an early preview of our progress.

With this August 2017 preview, users can create Power BI reports in Power BI Desktop that connect to any data source, and publish their reports to Power BI Report Server. There’s no special configuration required to enable this functionality — simply install and configure the August 2017 preview version of Power BI Report Server on your machine, and you’re ready to go. You can then use the included Power BI Desktop application to connect to your data source(s), create your report, and publish it directly to the report server to share it with your users.

image

Since this is an early preview, there are a few limitations to keep in mind as you try it out. Please note that we plan to support all the below scenarios when we make the GA release available in later in 2017. Some current limitations are:

  • Scheduled data refresh is currently not available for reports using imported data.
  • Direct Query data connections are not currently supported.
  • Scale-out environments for Power BI Report Server are not officially supported using the preview release.
  • Reports must be smaller than 50 MB in size.

View and interact with Excel Workbooks

Excel and Power BI contain a portfolio of tools that is unique in the industry. Together, they enable business analysts to more easily gather, shape, analyze, and visually explore their data. In addition to viewing Power BI reports in the web portal, business users can now do the same with Excel workbooks in the new version of Power BI Report Server, giving them a single location to publish and view their self-service Microsoft BI content.

To do this, customers can take advantage of Office Online Server (OOS), a separate download from Microsoft Office to render Office documents that you can view in your browser. Customers with a Volume Licensing account can download OOS from the Volume License Servicing Center at no cost and will have view-only functionality. We’ve published an easy-to-follow walkthrough of how to add Office Online Server to your Power BI Report Server preview environment. Once configured, users can view and interact with Excel workbooks that:

  • Have no external data source dependencies.
  • Have a live connection to an external SQL Server Analysis Services data source.
  • Have a PowerPivot data model.

image

To learn about these and other new features in the August preview, including support for the new table and matrix visuals, make sure you read the release notes and supporting documentation we’ve published to the Power BI website. We’re looking forward to hearing your feedback in the comments below or in the Power BI forums.
