v0.1-alpha.3 (17 May 2020)¶
RAII in shader code
RAII in shaders, gpu memory buffers, staging buffers, mesh buffers and textures
RAII in descriptors
Removed manager classes entirely.
v0.1-alpha.2 (26 Apr 2020)¶
Create a threadpool using C++17.
Added a simple C++17 implementation of an octree.
Added event system using boost::signals2.
Use boost::bitstream for data processing.
Convert octree data structure to vertex geometry (a mesh buffer).
Support arbitrary indentations of octree geometry.
Added a descriptor set layout for simple octree geometry.
Ported Vulkan Memory Allocator library (VMA) to Linux.
Added a simple camera movement class.
Write spdlog console output to a logfile.
Improvements considering C++ code quality standards.
Logging format and logger usage.
Fixed a bug that would render every model twice.
v0.1-alpha.1 (12 Apr 2020)¶
Integrate Vulkan Memory Allocator library (VMA).
Integrate RenderDoc support.
Use spdlog as logger library.
Integrate tiny_gltf library.
Mesh buffer manager for vertex and index buffers based on VMA.
Texture manager based on stb_image and VMA.
Uniform buffer manager based on VMA.

Vulkan debug callbacks.
Vulkan standard validation layers.
C++11 std::chrono class.
Let VMA generate memory debug logs.
Associate internal resource names with memory regions to improve debugging.
Use separate data transfer queue for cpu to gpu memory copies if available.
Availability checks for Vulkan features.
Settings decision maker for Vulkan initialization.
Simple command line argument parser.
Automatic GPU selection mechanism and -gpu <N> command line argument for preferential GPU.
Create windows using glfw3.
Keyboard input based on glfw3.
