    MOST NOTABLE CHANGES AND NEW FEATURES:
    ======================================

    NEW FEATURE: PROBES:

      - Get almost unlimited capabilities to analyze issues specific to your particular
        application, as well as automatically recognize problems typical to wide range
        of applications
      - Customizable to fit your needs
      - Recognize typical problems with the help of built-in probes which are ready to
        use out-of-the-box
      - Inspections enable automatic high-level analysis of application
      - Rich UI enables comprehensive analysis of probe results

    CPU PROFILING:

      - Analyze CPU profiling results, ignoring particular methods or focusing
        on particular methods only
      - Estimate CPU usage in given time range, basing on available stack trace telemetry
      - "Method list" is available in live view, in addition to "Call tree"
      - CPU tracing: calibration helps to exclude tracing overhead from the results

    MEMORY PROFILING:

      - Ability to ignore particular references in paths
      - Per-memory pool telemetry
      - Class hierarchy slave view
      - HPROF snapshots: object shallow sizes are calculated more accurately
      - Ability to open Android HPROF snapshots

    TELEMETRY:

      - Ability to see time as clock (system time in profiled system)
        in addition to uptime (time passed since profiled application start)

    J2EE:

      - GlassFish 3 supported
      - Simplified profiling of applications running inside an OSGi container
      - J2EE Statistics: an option to show/hide short calls
      - Tomcat 6 support improved

    IDE INTEGRATION:

      - NetBeans 6.8 supported
      - MyEclipse 8.5 supported
      - Integration wizard improved to handle some NetBeans configurations
      - Ability to specify in the plugin UI 32-bit or 64-bit agent

    USER INTERFACE:

      - Welcome screen: to help troubleshooting possible connection problems,
        "Monitor Local Applications" provides an option to see all Java applications
        running on the machine, including those not started with the profiler agent
      - Table columns are resizeable, and if column content does not fit,
        a scroller appears
      - Telemetry graphs are filled with color
      - Profiler events such as switching profiling modes,
        starting/stopping profiling, capturing snapshots etc. are now logged to the log
        file, as well as are available in the UI
      - Quick info: an option to see non-filtered stack traces
      - Summary tab: list of all system properties is available ("System properties")
      - Summary tab: Java version is shown with all available VM detail

    MISCELLANEOUS:

      - Java 7 supported
      - HP-UX supported (IA64)
      - Ability to export basic snapshot views to *.csv, *.txt, *.html via
        a command line tool
      - "Settings | Snapshot Directory..." allows to configure snapshot directory location
      - Ability to combine exclusive and inclusive filter patterns
      - API: added new methods
      - Windows: installer offers to automatically previously uninstall builds
      - Solaris: yjp.sh automatically starts the profiler UI with a 64-bit JVM if
        it is available
      - Optimization: bytecode instrumentation improvements
      - Caveat: only applications running on Java 6 or newer can be profiled.
        New functionality provided by this version of the profiler requires Java 6 APIs
        which are not available in earlier Java versions.
        For profiling Java 5 applications, please use YourKit Java Profiler 8.0.

    Anyone use both and have any feedback?

    Feature wise they're pretty much comparable. Personally I'm very happy with YourKit, especially since they offer free licenses for open source projects AND the profiler is really good.
