2.0.0 (2018-03-19)

A major release with many compatibility-breaking changes.

Notable new features:

  • Introduction of VmaAllocation handle that you must retrieve from allocation functions and pass to deallocation functions next to normal VkBuffer and VkImage.
  • Introduction of VmaAllocationInfo structure that you can retrieve from VmaAllocation handle to access parameters of the allocation (like VkDeviceMemory and offset) instead of retrieving them directly from allocation functions.
  • Support for reference-counted mapping and persistently mapped allocations - see vmaMapMemory, VMA_ALLOCATION_CREATE_MAPPED_BIT.
  • Support for custom memory pools - see VmaPool handle, VmaPoolCreateInfo structure, vmaCreatePool function.
  • Support for defragmentation (compaction) of allocations - see function vmaDefragment and related structures.
  • Support for “lost allocations” - see appropriate chapter on documentation Main Page.

1.0.1 (2017-07-04)

  • Fixes for Linux GCC compilation.
  • Changed “CONFIGURATION SECTION” to contain #ifndef so you can define these macros before including this header, not necessarily change them in the file.
