In this talk I will cover the latest additions to Xdebug. Although it is 15 years old now, many features have been added in the last few months and years. In this talk, I will introduce and explain these new features, and some more notable features added in the last few years.

Great info into what is new with xdebug 2.6 and what is coming in 2.7, sharing the pain of maintaining library that is so dependent on inner workings of PHP engine.

I would love to hear this talk in a longer format, maybe focusing a bit more on other changes/features in previous versions as well, as xdebug is an internal tool, it's hard to follow all the features coming as a user.
