  • New Support: Windows 10 19H1 Update
    • Support for applications using Variable Rate Shading APIs ID3D12GraphicsCommandList5::RSSetShadingRate and ID3D12GraphicsCommandList5::RSSetShadingRateImage


  • Feature Enhancement: HUD
    • Incompatible Capture UX – added the ability to accept a notification and proceed at the user’s own risk from the HUD when an incompatible capture is detected


  • Feature Enhancement: API Inspector
