In news:

Software tools provider Telerik announced its acquisition of the Fiddler Web debugger.

In science:

These are documented on the web and the manpower for doing these tasks comes from the collaboration as part of an offline shift. A shifter is given recipes for running purify, debuggers and software management tools as well as instructions for running the tests.
Commissioning the CDF Offline Software
Minimization of the size of failure-inducing input is intractable in general, and hence delta debuggers are based on greedy heuristics.
Testing and Debugging Techniques for Answer Set Solver Development
The delta debugger runs the solver on the original failure-inducing input in order to observe the defective behavior, e.g. the solver crashes with a segmentation fault, or outputs a solution which is not a valid answer set.
Testing and Debugging Techniques for Answer Set Solver Development
Then, the delta debugger iteratively tries to eliminate parts of the current input.
Testing and Debugging Techniques for Answer Set Solver Development
After each elimination, the delta debugger runs the solver on the current (reduced) input.
