PerfSuite 1.0.0 alpha 1 released

PerfSuite 1.0.0 alpha 1 is now available.

This is the first alpha release of the 1.0 series
of PerfSuite. During the alpha cycle, new
capabilities and features will be prototyped and
added. Features may experience significant
changes as the alpha series progresses, and we
caution that new features may be removed if
necessary during the cycle.

Highlights of this release include:

- A new Java API for parsing PerfSuite-generated XML files.

- Fundamental change in data gathering, based on
user feedback. The new approach reverses the
order in which the time stamp counter and other
measurements (e.g. hardware performance counters)
are sampled.

- Preliminary support for creating files that may
be visualized with the Cube visualizer from

There are a number of other changes, enhancements,
and bug fixes in this release. See the CHANGES
file for more information.
