I have just downloaded the latest version of CodeXL 1.8. I am working on Ubuntu 14.04.
The new static ISA view in analyze mode is great. However, some instructions seem to be missing. Some vector arithmetics and all flat store instructions are missing, compared to those shown in previous version.
Here are two screenshots of ISA view from 1.7 and 1.8, for the same kernel function:
For example, take a look at the last 3 lines, just above the label, flat_store is missing.
