Vulkan Continues In Their Weekly Cadence: Vulkan 1.0.15 Released

The Khronos Group doesn't appear to be letting down in their weekly release cadence for new point releases to the Vulkan 1.0.x specification.

The amount of grammatical corrections, specification clarifications, and other minor changes comprising these point releases is beginning to slow down, but the weekly updates are continuing. Just in time for this Memorial Day weekend in the US, Vulkan 1.0.15 has been released.

Vulkan 1.0.15 takes care of just four GitHub issues and two internal issues. All of these changes, as usual, are quite minor and not nearly the number of changes we saw in the earlier 1.0.x releases.

In July~August we are expecting that Khronos will release a new version of the OpenGL specification (OpenGL 4.6) but it will be interesting to see if they also release Vulkan 1.1 at that time or just put out a provisional specification update. SIGGRAPH this year is at the end of July: running from 24 to 28 July in Anaheim, California.
