The Khronos Group has published the 30th revision of SPIR-V, the intermediate representation at the heart of the new Vulkan graphics API and OpenCL 2.1 compute API.

The latest revision to the specification is accompanied by updated C/C++ header files for SPIR-V. Revision 30 of SPIR-V is still in pre-1.0 form and currently marked as v0.99. It's not until later in the year that SPIR-V 1.0 is expected along with the public Vulkan specification, etc.

Those wishing to take a look at the SPIR-V documentation that is now another step closer to reaching v1.0 can visit the registry.
