Server-side console logging missing in new developer tools?

The redesigned version of the developer tools that ships with recent versions of Firefox Developer Edition (56, and now 57) appears to no longer support the ChromeLogger protocol for server-side logging via headers. Support for server-side logging was originally introduced in version 43, as documented here: Firefox - Console messages.

I haven't seen any discussions about the feature being removed; it appears to have simply been silently dropped from the developer tools suite. There's no longer a [Server] toggle button on the Console tab, and the ChromeLogger data no longer shows up in the console.

Does anyone know whether the server-side logging feature is officially being stripped out of Firefox going forward, or whether it just hasn't yet made it into the new dev tools suite? For now, I've had to revert back to the standard beta versions of Firefox (which still have the old dev tools) to maintain the server-side logging functionality. I'm hoping it's just an oversight that it wasn't included with the new version of the developer tools, and that it will be included prior to the redesigned dev tools being merged to stable, but it's odd that they would deploy the new version of the dev tools to the Developer Edition when it's missing a major feature.

You can use the old frontend by toggling the devtools.webconsole.new-frontend-enabled preference.

Much obliged! I'm glad the feature remains optional for the time being. I searched around for an option to toggle it back to the old version when I first saw the issue, but couldn't find anything. My googling was apparently not up to par.
