Just to keep a little perspective here, PC Atari has had debugging
capabilities since 1998 or so.  From Andrew's list, it's always had
breakpoints (via the "Run To Cursor" command), expression-driven
breakpoints (break when scanline=150 or register=$FF, although this was
barely documented and hard to use), view and modification of RAM and the
registers, scanline and cycle counters, and partial rendering of a frame
and scanline in mid-draw.

That said, having these capabilities in a modern cross-platform
application rather than buried in a DOS Turbo Pascal package is
phantastich. :)
