AMD recently released new versions of GPU Shader Analyser and The Compressonator, adding DirectX 10 support to both, and more.

For GPU Shader Analyser, that means support for R6-series hardware targets and SM4 shaders, and for The Compressonator (and the supporting Compress library) that means support for the block compressed (BCx) and other D3D10-specific surface formats.

There's also support for OpenGL shaders, if Direct3D isn't your thing.
