I'm so excited about what's coming to 2018 and beyond that I wrote a blogpost! aras-p.info/blog/2018/02/18/Un

Today is a good day. DX11 feature level 9.x is the worst/leakiest "abstraction" ever, and only needed on old Windows Phone devices. Good riddance. Let's see where this goes :) mastodon.gamedev.place/media/v
