Weekly digest 418 Sep 2016, by mrexodia
This is the fourth of (hopefully) many weekly digests. Basically it will highlight the things that happened to x64dbg and related projects during the week before.
Fixed goto dialog for reserved memory pages
You can now no longer disassemble in reserved memory pages, but the goto dialog would still mark them as ‘valid address’ which has now been fixed.
Different trace record + selection color in the graph
The color for trace record + selection is now the mix of both colors:
No foreground window per default
The option to not call
SetForegroundWindow when the debugger pauses is now enabled per default, this fixed lots of annoyances with scripting.
Disassembly preview is now theme aware
Previously the disassembly preview would look horrible if you used a darker theme, it will now adjust to that theme properly:
Search pattern in module
You can now search a pattern in the whole module from the disassembly context menu:
Fixed intermodular calls in module
Issue #509 has been resolved and you can now properly search (all) modules.
Added various memory-related expression functions
mem.decodepointer have been added. See the documentation for more information.
Script DLL template for Visual Studio
The scriptdll command has been documented and there is an example UpxUnpacker available, but the barrier of entry was still too high. ScriptDllTemplate is a template project for Visual Studio so you don’t have to worry about setting up and you can start natively scripting x64dbg.
A Visual Studio template for regular plugins is on the way.
UpxUnpacker for x64dbgpy
There has been a Python scripting plugin available for quite some time (x64dbgpy), now there is a very simple UpxUnpacker.py available. We are in need of contributers for x64dbgpy, so please come in contact if you want more powerful Python scripting in x64dbg.
Register view enhancements
In pull request #1098 torusrxxx added various enhancements to the registers view. The configured endianness is now respected in the edit dialog and there are tooltips for various uncommon registers and flags:
For me the university started again, which means I will have less time to work on x64dbg. Probably I will have more time to work on x64dbg during the Christmas break again. If you have an hour of free time, please try to solve a few easy issues!
Finally, if someone is interested in hiring me to work on x64dbg more, please contact me!
