Version 8.8.0

Updated: Dec 21, 2020

Welcome to v8.8.0, the 20X release of Bixby Developer Studio. This release includes the new Symbol Search feature, as well as minor fixes and enhancements.

Features

Symbol Search

Adding onto the Search & Replace feature, this release adds an option to search for "symbols" within .bxb files. When searching symbols, Bixby searches specific locations within .bxb files that allow defining or referencing symbols. Currently, the feature supports searching for concept or action names across files within the capsule. Over time this feature will include properties or other developer-defined variables.

Perform a symbol search by choosing "Symbol" instead of "Text" in the dropdown next to the search input.

Text or Symbol Search Type

All other search options are available while performing a symbol search including replace. Happy refactoring!

Editor Actions & Commands

We've added a few new commands and editor actions relating to symbols.

Find All References

From the editor in a .bxb file, right-click on a concept or action name to Find All References of the symbol across the capsule. This command is also available with a keyboard shortcut (SHIFT+F12) or from the command palette.

Go To Definition

From the editor in a .bxb file, right-click on a concept or action name and choose Go To Definition to navigate to the definition of the symbol. This command is also available with a keyboard shortcut (F12) or from the command palette. Additionally, you can use the CTRL + Click (CMD + Click on Mac) shortcut to quickly navigate to the definition.

Enhancements

Simulator: Steps UI Now Shows Deleted Steps

The Simulator steps now show deleted steps. This change avoids confusion when exporting stories from the Simulator. Deleted steps cannot be returned to but are part of the conversation.

Hover over a node in the training graph to see a quick summary in the graph toolbar.
