Intel(R) VTune(TM) Amplifier's Application Performance Snapshot 2018 Gold standalone package was posted on APS landing page: https://software.intel.com/sites/products/snapshots/application-snapshot/ and available for free download (Linux package is a bit more than 100Mb). The same bits are also available as a part of Intel(R) VTune(TM) Amplifier XE 2018 Gold.
In this package we added support for Intel® Xeon® Processor Scalable family and improved stability.
Let me also remind that we changed APS tool launcher from a script "aps.sh" to an executable binary "aps" that allowed us to significantly reduce startup overhead on Intel(R) Xeon Phi(TM) processors.
We are looking forward to getting your feedback on the tool so please do not hesitate to write on your experience and feature requests!
Thank you, VTune/APS development team.
