AMD's V-EZ Goes Open Source

Several months back AMD announced their V-EZ initiative. V-EZ is a cross-platform wrapper that makes it easier for developers to bridge the gap between standard graphics APIs and Vulkan. AMD says this tool isn't hardware specific and should work on non-AMD hardware. Further, in order to get this out to the world it's gone open source and you can get it on GitHub. With that said, I suspect we'll see some of the indie developers start to use this since it's less complex than going straight to Vulkan. Anything that gets us to a Vulkan world is a-ok with me.
