There's a new incremental beta release available now-- this release extends support to additional OS and GPU platforms as well as provides improvements to the API. (Download it now here).
Linux 64-bit and Windows 32-bit Support
We are now officially on all three major desktop platforms! We now support Linux 64-bit (Debian 9.5.0+ / Ubuntu) as well as Windows 32-bit.
We now support OpenGL 3.2 and up (in addition to D3D11 and Metal2) and it's just as fast as our other drivers. This work was done as part of the new GLFW port, check out
GPUDriverGL.h and the GLSL shader code within the Framework directory.
New CMake / GLFW Projects
We've ported the Framework code over to GLFW (a lightweight, cross-platform OpenGL/Vulkan toolkit) and set up cross-platform CMake projects for the samples so you can generate projects for your favorite platform with a single click.
JSHelpers.h in the Framework code.
We've re-written the documentation to take advantage of all the new changes, read the docs here.
