    There's nothing in the article stating (or even implying) otherwise. What is your point?

      So why invest in rewriting the whole thing in DX11 but limit yourself to DX9 level hardware again? How many (real) games with a DX11 (only) based graphics engine do you see in market which don't list their minimum hardware requirements as a DX11 level GPU?


      I don't now any such game. Some DX11 games wants you to have DX11 installed but they don't require a DX11.5 GPU (0.5 compiler profile = shader model 5). Those games can be measured with just one hand. Also this legacy compatibility writing is part of a game engine profiles, so is not so much extra job, it is always there. Also a game with legacy support it's only limited with older hardware, you don't have graphics limitations with new hardware. For example tessellation can be ON or OFF to older hardware.

        It's just confusing because Michael keeps bouncing between announcing new features that are posted on the ML, and new features finally committed to master.

          I guess that could be confusing, but I think he only announces mailing list patches if they are exciting or bring a long-awaited feature.
