Trace Compass Incubator

The Trace Compass Incubator contains additional features, for example, additional trace types, extra analyses for specific use cases or experimental features under development.

Since the Incubator is in Incubation mode, there are no official releases of the plugins. They are built daily and may be updated between Trace Compass releases.

Disclaimer: The Trace Compass Incubator features will always work with latest master of Trace Compass but it may not be possible to install some of them with the stable version.
