It's also worth pointing out that Debugging of standalones for the platform the IDE is running on is also included in the feature. This has been an oft requested ability as sometimes things do work differently between standalone and IDE.

(There are other future extensions to it on the cards too - launch and debugging of standalones on another machine/different platform; connecting to running standalones attached to the local network; server side script debugging - they aren't included in the initial offering as it would have substantially increased the cost and timescale. They can be done subsequently after the initial feature is stable and working well perhaps as a further campaign on Feature Exchange.)

I've been doing mostly desktop work for a long time and I'd forgotten how tedious it is to debug on a mobile device. It literally takes 10-15 minutes to test a change after all the insertion of "answer" or logging commands and rebuilding and installing and testing. Even so you still have to guess what was wrong, hope you put logging into the right handlers, and then repeat the process all over again. And again.
