AMD --
Earlier this year AMD made CodeXL 2.0 open-source as a developer tool with GUI centered around profiling/optimizing D3D, OpenGL, and Vulkan (since CodeXL 2.1) under Windows and Linux. Today marks the release of CodeXL 2.2.

CodeXL 2.2 is out as the newest open-source release and on the Linux side has support for interfacing with the AMDGPU-PRO hybrid driver stack. Previously the Linux support for CodeXL depended upon the now-deprecated Catalyst driver. There's also support for Ubuntu 16.10. On the WIndows side is support for the Windows 10 Anniversary Update.

CodeXL 2.2 also brings official support for AMD Radeon RX 460/470/480 Polaris graphics cards. Other additions with CodeXL 2.2 include support for capturing CPU-only and GPU-only traces, cross-platform capturing between Windows and Linux, support for new 7th Generation APUs, support for OpenGL-OpenCL interoperability in the debug mode, and a wide range of other changes.
