VULKAN --
It's not nearly as far along as DXVK that is allowing D3D11-over-Vulkan and already running great numbers of games in a performant manner under Wine, but the VK9 project for implementing Direct3D 9 over Vulkan has now hit its twenty-seventh milestone.

Milestone 27 for VK9 marks completing more of the necessary bits for depth buffers and stencil support:


Also still in a similarly primitive state is VKD3D as the Wine/CodeWeavers-led effort for getting Direct3D 12 over Vulkan.

More details on the current state of VK9 can be found from the project blog or GitHub.
