    The Debug perspective is displayed.  

  4. There are several other interesting things to take note of.

    • The title of the window now indicates that the Debug perspective is in use.

    • The shortcut bar contains several perspectives, the original Resource perspective, the new Debug perspective and a few others. The Debug perspective button is pressed in, indicating that it is the current perspective.

    • To display the full name of the perspective right click the perspective bar and check Show Text.
