  •               Automatic parsing of event messages described by ETW manifests
  •               Higher-level display of operations->messages->packets
  •               User controlled “on the fly” grouping by message attributes
  •               Ability to browse for logs of different types (.cap, etl, txt) and import them together
  •               Automatic re-assembly and ability to render payloads
  •               Ability to import text logs, parsing them into key element/value pairs
  •               Support for “Trace Scenarios” (one or more message providers, filters, and views)

Microsoft is providing this beta release to give you an opportunity to give feedback. There are “Report Issue” and “Community” buttons built into the ribbon for direct feedback.
