gDEBugger V4.3 Adds Redundant OpenGL State Changes Tracking

The new gDEBugger V4.3 adds in-depth analysis of the OpenGL usage by tracking redundant state changes and detailed usage statistics. This new feature includes various capabilities, such as noting unrecommended OpenGL functions (with a detailed explanation of why are they unrecommended and possible alternatives) and in-depth information about the usage of OpenGL State Change functions, including redundancy percentages and amount of redundant / effective calls. The S3 Graphics performance counters integration is also introduced in this version. This powerful integration works on all S3 Graphics hardware, giving very detailed information of the hardware utilization to allow optimizing the OpenGL usage on S3 Graphics hardware using gDEBugger. gDEBugger, an OpenGL and OpenGL ES debugger and profiler, traces application activity on top of the OpenGL API, lets programmers see what is happening within the graphic system implementation to find bugs and optimize OpenGL application performance.
