Vulkan 1.0.56 Brings One New Extension, Fixes
Vulkan 1.0.56 is now available as the latest point release in short order since the feature-packaged 1.0.54 debut.
Vulkan 1.0.56 brings one new extension: VK_EXT_depth_range_unrestricted. Other changes in Vulkan 1.0.56 include adding the KHX (Khronos experimental) author tag and other document clarifications and corrections.
The new VK_EXT_depth_range_unrestricted extension was engineered by NVIDIA and it removes 0.0-1.0 restrictions on the view port, pipeline depth stencil, and clear depth stencil values.
The latest Vulkan documentation can be fetched from GitHub.
