API Use Scanning Now Has A Face

With the API use scanning tooling out the door in Ant task form, I thought it was time to put a face on the feature. I know, I know, why would you need UI for the tools when they are already in Ant task form? Because not everyone is 100% Ant-savvy (myself included) and most users like the tactile feedback of clicking a mouse.

The UI for the scanning feature is not in the official build yet, but fret not, we have provided it on our update site.

To access the UI simply open the search dialog. There are plans in the works to expand the capabilities of the UI to not only scan baselines but to handle API elements in general, for now though you can only scan baselines. Happy scanning.
