I'm running on windows with the update 6 from the kickstarter page.

I'm able to run sketches and it auto-reboots but I need a way to debug and the serial monitor is always blank. Testing with this sketch:

void setup() {
Serial.begin(38400);
}

void loop()
{
Serial.println("Hello World");
delay(1000);
}

What are the IDE tools?

I have Com3 selected wich is the same port that i program the teensy on. You can see that indicated int he screenshots.

Under the "tools" menu in the IDE, it allows you to select the serial port. Sometimes your comport might get un-checked cause no serial monitor output.

And 38400 seems like a weird speed, tried with 9600 ?

Try what pixelk suggests (9600 baud) and also see if there are other com ports available. I had a similar issue (http://forum.pjrc.com/threads/25-Serial-data-not-being-transferred) that was resolved by switching to COM4, even though the program uploaded and the Teensy rebooted on COM3 just fine, somehow...
