I'm happier with this iteration of the diagram. It's still not perfect, but having gone through a few rough designs now its starting to appear in a form that matches my (rather vague) original vision [smile]

  • 10.1 has Vista-SP1 as a dependency which isn't included
  • Compatability of 9.0c on Vista/7 isn't included, but I'll probably keep it this way. I'll probably stick with the "native" technologies for platforms rather than crowd the diagram with the myriad of compatibility arrows...
  • Does not mention DXGI at all.
  • ... or DirectWrite
  • Direct2D is a dead-end at the moment, as is WPF
  • I was looking in the docs, but couldn't find anything about SlimDX [not] supporting 10.1 / 11...
  • The colour scheme is hideous

Not yet, but we plan on having support for D3D 10.1, D3D 11, and D2D by next release, at least in some form, so you could draw arrows from SlimDX to everything underneath at that point [grin]

Can't you just connect that to D3D 10.1 ?

I don't find it that bad, although the bubbly boxes from a few posts ago was better IMO.

Productive as ever - I continue to be impressed [grin]

Yeah, that's the easy one but I wanted to re-research the D2D/DW slides so that I definitely got it correct. In particular it's a bit of a bugger for the diagram as it probably has inter-API relationships rather than inter-layer ones like now thus potentially making it even more convoluted!

Yup, I prefered those as well but that was MS Powerpoint whereas these are MS Visio. The diagraming features in PowerPoint'07 are very good but not quite as freeform as Visio so I may not be able to get them back [sad]


Cheers,
Jack
