2 – Release Notes

VK-Z 0.5.0 has been compiled with the latest Vulkan API 1.0.42 header files and adds a new command line option: -getnumvkgpus that allows to get the number of Vulkan capable GPUs in the host system. This number of GPUs is returned by VK-Z (return code) and is also written on the standard output.
