Feature Enhancements:

- Vulkan/OpenGL Interop Range Profiling
        Added support for profiling applications that make use of Vulkan and OpenGL interoperability.
        Users can select the API to profile in the Range Profiler to focus on profiling a particular API.

- Increased Performance when Running RTX Applications
        Tracking options for acceleration structure builds have been changed and a more performant default option is offered.
        Projects using the previous tracking mode will be updated to the new equivalents.
        Users are now warned when their acceleration structure build patterns interfere with the analysis and are offered
        guidance on how to improve their compatibility with Nsight Graphics.

- Added the Nsight Aftermath SDK to the Nsight Graphics package
        Nsight Aftermath is a simple library you integrate into your DirectX 12 game’s crash reporter to generate GPU "mini-
        dumps" when a TDR or exception occurs.
        For more information about Nsight Aftermath, visit https://developer.nvidia.com/nsight-aftermath.

Improvements:

- Added the ability to export the resources view resource list to CSV
- Vulkan descriptor sets view can filter descriptor sets that are not currently bound
- Applications that run in full-screen mode now receive guidance on how to best interact with Nsight Graphics live analysis
- Improved event list view expand and collapse support so that the view is collapsed by default for increased readability, but
  expanded upon search

New Support:

- Vulkan Extensions
        VK_KHR_shader_clock
        VK_KHR_shader_subgroup_extended_types
        VK_KHR_spirv_1_4

- OpenGL Extensions
        glAlphaToCoverageDitherControlNV is now supported for frame debugging and profiling

- NGX support has been upgraded to NGX 1.3
