It seems the weekly Vulkan specification updates will be continuing for some amount of time.

Vulkan 1.0.9 has been christened as the latest point release to Vulkan 1.0. Similar to the earlier Vulkan 1.0.x releases, v1.0.9 isn't amount adding to the API or breaking it, but rather just about clarifying the documentation with making mostly mundane text corrections.

Vulkan 1.0.9 has a few fixes for issues reported via GitHub and then two internal issues were resolved. Again, nothing really exciting as it should be.

Those wanting to fetch the latest Vulkan graphics API documentation can do so via GitHub.
