VULKAN --
The Khronos Group's BoF at SIGGRAPH 2015 is now over with no major surprises.

If you missed the Khronos SIGGRAPH 2015 live-stream, the highlights at least from my perspective were:

- The details shared on Monday: Khronos Debuts OpenGL ES 3.2 & New GL Extensions, But No Vulkan This Week.

- Going over the platforms initially to be supported by Vulkan.

- WebGL 2.0 shipping plans before the end of the year, hopefully.

- Reiterating Wayland and Mir support (alongside X11) for Linux systems and Android.

- LunarG's LunarXchange as a new support portal around Vulkan.

There were no really ground-breaking details compared to what was previously available, but another few hours of interesting graphics tech talk anyhow.
