gDEBugger - FREE or NOT ?

A very popular OpenGL debugger is now available for FREE?
On official site we saw:
gDEBugger is not available for purchasing for the time being.
We plan to release a new and **FREE** gDEBugger version for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X. This version will be available for download by the end of 2010.
Please make sure to check our website for this version in the near future.
Until the free version will be released, please find below a temporary license file that will enable you to use the current gDEBugger version for free immediately.

Now is the end of 2010, but is not free.
What is gDEBugger
Named gDEBugger is an advanced OpenGL Debugger, Profiler and Graphic Memory Analyzer.

# yum search libstdc++

Then I use commands :

$ su 
# yum install compat-libstdc++-33.i686
