For GTC21 week NVIDIA has released version 11.3 of their CUDA toolkit.

CUDA 11.3 is bringing CUDA Graph enhancements, new stream priorities, Steam-ordered memory allocator enhancements, new APIs, support for virtual aliasing across kernel boundaries, and also support now for the Ubuntu 20.04.2 LTS point release. CUDA 11.3 also ships improvements to the NVIDIA C++ Standard Library (libcu++), various compiler improvements, and more.

Meanwhile in preview form with CUDA 11.3 is better integration around the Python programming language.
