Now I have to download this via the App Store? Dear Developer, Please, pretty please, with sugar on top, offer a direct download!

While this may be academically interesting of what practical use is it, given that all Mac's, other for Mac Pro's have non-swapable graphics cards? Even with MacPro's the 3rd party graphic card, options are limited. The time that knowing such parameters is actually useful is when making a purchase decision on a new Mac, or when replacing a graphics card in a Mac Pro. In either case you have to rely mostly on the vendors published specifications.

This currently serves as more of a diagnostic utility, for understanding the details of your graphic card when something doesn't work. Since it's free, the broadness of its usefulness is irrelevant, as there is no monetary investment on the part of the end-user. If only a few people find it useful, then its purpose has been served.

Nothing has changed since 4.1.1. It still crashes on my Mac Pro. Older versions (prior 4.1.1) work fine. Any ideas?

This version crashes on my Mac Pro 5.1 (Radeon 5870, 10.8.5). Anyone has the same issue?

Yep, would be nice. The 4.0.8 version was announced by the dev 10 day before now the App Store has listed it. I think Apple takes sometimes long time to check especially freeware tools (no profit for apple!) after they get uploaded to Apple. At least a few days the dev can offer an website DL until Apple has done the checks and offers App Store DL.

Agreed. I hate having the Apple store as a sole source for software. If I'm building an image I certainly can't include software registered to my account.

"Detects OpenGL 4.2 feature set" So this is more useful for Linux/Windows users... *sigh* C'mon, Apple!

Something strange I noticed is how in the previous version my OpenGL 2.1 scores were incredibly low but with the latest release (3.32) I'm getting close to 400fps - I am wondering whether the GLviewer has been optimised thus when it is properly optimised for the Apple OpenGL implementation the performance improves. My 2.1 score for the record went from 122 to 391 - something definitely must have changed - I've yet to test it on my iMac but I'm pretty certain that I'll see the same sorts of results.

seems to be doing a different test now for 2.1 which means you have to pretty much take old results and throw them out window
