APEX 4.0 EA2: Improved debugging, my new favorite feature

Just started looking at EA2, and like very much the new improved debugging.

First of all it's now in a popup window, which is a really good move.
With web pages relying more and more on javascript to render page components and rearrange page layouts, the old "inline" debugging was no longer effective.

I love the performance graph at the top, you really can't miss what areas are taking the longest time to execute.
Hovering over an item in the graph, shows the step number and name, so it's very quick to diagnose potential problems.

APEX is really coming of age!
