Vulkan 1.0.33 is now the latest version of the Vulkan 1.0 API specification from The Khronos Group.

Vulkan 1.0.33 has documentation changes around implicit external synchronization parameters in vkBegin/vkEndCommandBuffer, adding some previously overlooked requirements, some naming changes, and more.

Outside of documentation updates, Vulkan 1.0.33 has added scripts for being able to compare two Vulkan HTML specifications, a new generator script to create a simple extension loader for Vulkan based on vk.xml and will be added to the Vulkan SDK in the future, and various other changes.
