VULKAN --
VK9, the project implementing Direct3D 9 on top of the Khronos Vulkan graphics API, has hit two new milestones.

VK9 has passed its 10th and 11th milestones, which relate to mipmapping and texture support. Additionally, VK9 has seen a number of performance improvements to the code too.

Those interested in this technologically interesting open-source project that still has a long road ahead can find out more via this blog post or by visiting the GitHub project site for this D3D9 compatibility layer atop Vulkan.
