It looks like there's some added functionality in the databrowser; I can select visually select subcomponents of signals in time using the mouse, and the background changes color. Have there been any changes to how the function works? Is there documentation on the wiki about the usage of the new component browser? Thanks -

Should you experience any problems with the new implementation, please let us know asap. Just in case: the old implementation will still be distributed as ft_databrowser_old.

However, for both databrowser_old and componentbrowser_old, we will discontinue support and delete these functions in future release, if the new implementation proofs to be stable.
