Vulkan 1.3.235 Released With New VK_EXT_descriptor_buffer Extension
Vulkan 1.3.235 overall is a small update but it does add a driver ID now for the in-development NVK open-source NVIDIA Vulkan driver being worked on by Jason Ekstrand and the Nouveau developers at Red Hat. There are also a few fixes and then one new extension: VK_EXT_descriptor_buffer.
The VK_EXT_descriptor_buffer extension introduces new commands for putting shader-accessible descriptors directly in memory. VK_EXT_descriptor_buffer was worked on by engineers from Valve, AMD, NVIDIA, Arm, and Intel for making the management of descriptor data more useful. Among the Valve folks involved have been Mike Blumenkrantz, Connor Abbott, Hans-Kristian Arntzen, and Baldur Karlsson.
VK_EXT_descriptor_buffer is the main change of note with Vulkan 1.3.235 while the complete list of changes can be found via Vulkan-Docs.
