Fiddler Inspector API: Breaking Change Notification

In the current version of Fiddler, the HTTPRequestHeaders and HTTPResponseHeaders objects are defined in a separate standalone assembly called Plugins.dll. This was done primarily as an ease-of-use mechanism for VS2003, which doesn't have a simple way to add references to types from an .EXE from inside the IDE.

That limitation was removed from VS2005, and hence if these objects are moved inside Fiddler.exe, there will be some minor performance gains, and some extensibility and ease-of-development improvements as well.

I plan to merge the Plugins.dll types into Fiddler.exe shortly.

Please let me know ASAP if you have written or distributed custom inspectors that you are unable to recompile to the new model.
