Great feature from e.g. VS. Allows you to change code and temporarily compile and continue the current debug session. This reduces the "turn around" time for large C++ projects and for projects debugging DLLs. In VS I can launch a main-app, singlestep in my own DLL and use the edit&continue without a relaunch of the main-app.
Steps to Reproduce:

Any news on this?

Did you vote for this? You can now apply up to 20 votes per report.

This was linked to a rather old (BCB5) internal report, but I have no way to tell when action might happen on it. If you want to be more active in pushing than just voting on the report you could post a request to the newsgroups and suggest that others vote on it as well. Another option would be to apply for a field test the next time you see an offer - that would get you an additional avenue for input.

I have linked the internal report back to this report and added a comment that may help to get it more notice.
