Thanks. Indeed, we will add stackTop and thisContext back. They were present when we first integrated, but some said they are not useful for them.

> additionally "into" and "over" became smaller buttons farther away from the variables section, iow more difficult to hit while also watching the lower pane. and btw if i do that on tests, the debugger does not really start at the beginning of the test (also restart does not help),eg open a debugger in 5.0 on FFIPluginTests>>testGenericCharCall and do a "restart": you are at the very end of the test.

I do not understand this one. Could you describe more specifically the scenario?
