The Intel(R) Composer XE 2013 SP1 beta and the Intel(R) Parallel Studio XE 2013 SP1 beta are introducing a new installation feature - online installation that is a smaller downloadable and downloads/installs the only components you selected to be installed. With this new online installer it avoids the full package downloading and saves the installation time.
This online installation requires internet access and possiblly a proxy setting if your machine is behind an internet proxy. The following sections provide the instructions on how to set the proxy on different platforms.

In “Once Again, A Farewell to Cambridge” (“再别康桥”, 1928), Xu Zhimo (徐志摩) wrote, “By waving my hands / I am saying goodbye to the rosy cloud in the western sky” (“我轻轻的招手 / 作别西天的云彩”). While gesture interaction with the cloud only happens in a poet’s works, in reality the Intel® Perceptual Computing SDK 2013 creates a new world of interactivity with Intel® Core™ processor based applications.
Some developers like performance data representation in form of “call graph”, where nodes are functions and edges are function calls from caller to callee. Also functions are attributed with CPU time. This way of call sequence visualization is not necessary needed and VTune™ Amplifier XE doesn’t have this graph – there are a lot of other powerful interactive ways to view, sort and filter performance data.
But there are good news for those who likes call graphs: it’s possible to make them from VTune Amplifier XE results. This blog post describes the way how to do it.
Intel® Inspector XE, Intel® VTune™ Amplifier XE, and Intel® Advisor XE use Microsoft Windows* OS system fonts to select text size. This allows the components to automatically pick up any change you make for accessibility or personal preference without affecting any other component user on the system.
Therefore, changing the text size for the Intel® Parallel Studio XE GUI is simple. Just change the Windows* text size and reopen the component.
If you’re working on a cutting-edge visual computing application, download the new release the Intel® Software Development Kit (SDK) for OpenCL Applications 2013 to realize efficiency, performance and power savings. The new SDK includes certified OpenCL 1.2 support on 3rd and future 4th generation Intel® Core™ processors running Microsoft Windows* 7 and 8 operating systems.
