planning to add a JSON or CSV output format so that it will be

before Dconf 2014 - hopefully!


why don't ease the IDE integration even more - for example
the pin tool from intel (ptools.org) is a normal executable (the server) but you can give pin a tool/commander dll per commandline which is then responsible for controling the debugger - this way its very easy to integrate the debugger into any environment fast and performant

examples

pin.exe -t idadbg.dll <- starts pin with an IDA-tool-dll to be able to
control pin with the ida debugger

pin.exe -t vsdbg.dll <- starts pin with an vs-studio debug helper
this way you can use pin as an debugger for VStudio

etc.

csv and json is nice - but there a much nicer ways of doing ipc

I expect this is how it will be even with dbg and IDEs. The IDE will have a plugin that sits between the debugger and IDE. The communication between the IDE plugin and debugger will be over a socket and the dbg output will be in JSON format so that IDE plugin can parse it properly. Depending on the IDE, the plugin will be either a library (dll) or an independent executable.
