What’s new in Fiddler 2/10/2015 8:44:44 AM

I threw together some notes for someone doing a presentation about Fiddler.

News

· Fiddler 2.5 should be out shortly. Most of the “new” goodies are in 2.4.9.9 but are yet to be discovered by most users.

· Hopefully, the second edition of the Fiddler Book will be out in the next month.

The ImageBloat extension, of course.
