SDK released 6/20/2018

Overview of changes and additions to Vulkan SDK 1.1.77

  1. Linux SDK is now packaged as a tar.gz file instead of a .run file. Previously the run file created a VulkanSDK directory and then expanded the SDK into the VulkanSDK/1.1.xx.y directory. The tar file now simply expands the SDK into a directory of the form 1.1.xx.y.
  2. Many bug fixes, increased validation coverage and accuracy improvements, and feature additions
  3. New extensions for this SDK release:

VK_KHR_get_display_properties2

VK_KHR_draw_indirect_count
