From version 0.2.0, it supports to read an external DirectX Compute Shader file. You can write your own rules with Compute Shader (check Documentation)

Currently, the following technologies are used:

  • DirectX11 - Direct3D
  • DirectCompute (Compute Shader)
  • Direct2D
  • DirectWrite
  • Ribbon Framework
  • TSF (Text Services Framework)
