Vulkan 1.0.41 was released this morning as the newest revision to this specification for high performance graphics.

Vulkan 1.0.41 is a relatively mundane update compared to say the many additions in Vulkan 1.0.39 or even 1.0.40 that added an extension important for HDR. With Vulkan 1.0.41, there aren't any new extensions.

Vulkan 1.0.41 adds a number of clarifications to the documentation, fixes some documentation problems, disables VK_EXT_swapchain_colorspace until some internal issues are resolved, and other minor work.

Those interested in all of the details of Vulkan 1.0.41 can find them out via this Git commit.
