    Just installed it. I guess Valve is using this project for Dota2 on Apple products. It's a framework on top of Metal that allows you to use Vulkan, which makes it easier to do cross-platform. Valve says it runs much faster than Apple's native OpenGL implementation. I'm sure there are limits, but I'm going to start doing a bit more learning about graphics programming, and it would be nice to learn Vulkan as it's available on more platforms. Was very easy to get it setup.
