Yes, the debugger has been much improved in 2.3.1. All versions before
crashed really often. It's still not perfect, but I use it all the time
for debugging. Even my complex multi-threaded application is possible
to debug with Anjuta 2.3.1.

I added a lot of bug reports for Anjuta and I like to see that the
developers react very fast and solve the issues often in some days in

Currently I'm testing a special Anjuta patch to use the gdb option "-d"
to add external source files. This helps me to debug libraries that are
installed with source and debug info on Gentoo. No other GUI that I
know has the possibility to step into and through libraries that easy.

But for sure I'm also not a neutral observer. Give it a try if you
