EFFECTS FOR DIRECT3D 11 (FX11) ------------------------------ Copyright (c) Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved. March 10, 2017 Effects for Direct3D 11 (FX11) is a management runtime for authoring HLSL shaders, render state, and runtime variables together. The source is written for Visual Studio 2013 or 2015. It is recommended that you make use of VS 2013 Update 5, VS 2015 Update 2, and Windows 7 Service Pack 1 or later. These components are designed to work without requiring any content from the DirectX SDK. For details, see "Where is the DirectX SDK?" <http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee663275.aspx>. All content and source code for this package are subject to the terms of the MIT License. <http://opensource.org/licenses/MIT>.

See MSDN for a list of differences compared to the Effects 10 (FX10) library. https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/ff476141.aspx The Effects 11 library is for use in Win32 desktop applications. FX11 requires the D3DCompiler API be available at runtime to provide shader reflection functionality, and this API is not deployable for Windows Store apps on Windows 8.0, Windows RT, or Windows phone 8.0. The fx_5_0 profile support in the HLSL compiler is deprecated, and does not fully support DirectX 11.1 HLSL features such as minimum precision types. It is supported in the Windows 8.1 SDK version of the HLSL compiler (FXC.EXE) and D3DCompile API (#46), is supported but generates a deprecation warning with D3DCompile API (#47), and could be removed in a future update. --------------- RELEASE HISTORY --------------- March 10, 2017 (11.19) Add VS 2017 projects Minor code cleanup September 15, 2016 (11.18) Minor code cleanup August 2, 2016 (11.17) Updated for VS 2015 Update 3 and Windows 10 SDK (14393) Added 'D' suffix to debug libraries per request April 26, 2016 (11.16) Retired VS 2012 projects Minor code and project file cleanup November 30, 2015 (11.15) Updated for VS 2015 Update 1 and Windows 10 SDK (10586) July 29, 2015 (11.14) Updated for VS 2015 and Windows 10 SDK RTM Retired VS 2010 projects June 17, 2015 (11.13) Fix for Get/SetFloatVectorArray with an offset April 14, 2015 (11.12) More updates for VS 2015 November 24, 2014 (11.11) Updates for Visual Studio 2015 Technical Preview July 15, 2014 (11.10) Minor code review fixes January 24, 2014 (11.09) VS 2010 projects now require Windows 8.1 SDK Added pragma for needed libs to public header Minor code cleanup October 21, 2013 (11.08) Updated for Visual Studio 2013 and Windows 8.1 SDK RTM July 16, 2013 (11.07) Added VS 2013 Preview project files Cleaned up project files Fixed a number of /analyze issues June 13, 2013 (11.06) Added GetMatrixPointerArray, GetMatrixTransposePointerArray, SetMatrixPointerArray, SetMatrixTransposePointerArray methods Reverted back to BOOL in some cases because sizeof(bool)==1, sizeof(BOOL)==4 Some code-cleanup: minor SAL fix, removed bad assert, and added use of override keyword February 22, 2013 (11.05) Cleaned up some warning level 4 warnings November 6, 2012 (11.04) Added IUnknown as a base class for all Effects 11 interfaces to simplify use in managed interop sceanrios, although the lifetime for these objects is still based on the lifetime of the parent ID3DX11Effect object. Therefore reference counting is ignored for these interfaces. ID3DX11EffectType, ID3DX11EffectVariable and derived classes, ID3DX11EffectPass, ID3DX11EffectTechnique, and ID3DX11EffectGroup October 24, 2012 (11.03) Removed the dependency on the D3DX11 headers, so FX11 no longer requires the legacy DirectX SDK to build. It does require the d3dcompiler.h header from either the Windows 8.0 SDK or from the legacy DirectX SDK Removed references to D3D10 constants and interfaces Deleted the d3dx11dbg.cpp and d3dx11dbg.h files Deleted the D3DX11_EFFECT_PASS flags which were never implemented General C++ code cleanups (nullptr, C++ style casting, stdint.h types, Safer CRT, etc.) which are compatible with Visual C++ 2010 and 2012 SAL2 annotation and /analyze cleanup Added population of Direct3D debug names for object naming support in PIX and the SDK debug layer Added additional optional parameter to D3DX11CreateEffectFromMemory to provide a debug name Added D3DX11CreateEffectFromFile, D3DX11CompileEffectFromMemory, and D3DX11CompileEffectFromFile June 2010 (11.02) The DirectX SDK (June 2010) included an update with some minor additional bug fixes. This also included the Effects 11-based sample DynamicShaderLinkageFX11. This is the last version to support Visual Studio 2008. The source code is located in Samples\C++\Effects11. February 2010 (11.01) An update was shipped with the DirectX SDK (February 2010). This fixed a problem with the library which prevented it from working correctly on 9.x and 10.x feature levels. This is the last version to support Visual Studio 2005. The source code is located in Samples\C++\Effects11. August 2009 (11.00) The initial release of Effects 11 (FX11) was in the DirectX SDK (August 2009). The source code is located in Utilities\Source\Effects11. This is essentially the Effects 10 (FX10) system ported to Direct3D 11.0 with support for effects pools removed and support for groups added.
