--- Quote --- Change log for April 15, 2016 Vulkan 1.0.10 spec update:

  * Bump API patch number and header version number to 10 for this
    update.

Github Issues:

  * Slightly tweak the <<memory-allocation,Host Memory>> allocator language
    so that an application wrapping the standard C alloc/free/realloc
    functions is still correct - the previous language was too strong with
    regards to freeing memory. Also made certain scenarios clearer - an
    implementation may now continue without error if an allocation failed
    and it is able to continue correctly (public issue 21).
  * Require that etext:VK_*_CREATE_SPARSE_BINDING_BIT is set when the
    corresponding etext:VK_*_CREATE_SPARSE_RESIDENCY_BIT is used, in the
    <<sparsememory-miptail,Mip Tail Regions>> section and related commands
    flink:vkCreateBuffer and flink:vkCreateImage (public issue 84).
  * Update the <<features,Features, Limits, and Formats>> chapter to clarify
    interactions between optional features and dynamic state for the
    pname:depthBiasClamp and pname:wideLines features (public issue 89).
  * Describe the code:WorkgroupSize builtin in the
    <<interfaces-builtin-variables,Built-In Variables>> section, and update
    the <<compute-shaders,Compute Shaders>> section to further clarify how
    to set the number of workgroups to execute in a compute shader (public
    issue 145).
  * Use the term *image subresource* everywhere instead of *subresource*,
    except for the special case of *host-accessible subresource*, which may
    be either an image subresource or buffer range (public issue 120)
  * Add a note to the <<features,Features, Limits, and Formats>> section
    about extensibility of structures (Public issue 165).
  * Fix return code flink:vkAcquireNextImageKHR when the timeout parameter
    is 0 to ename:VK_NOT_READY instead of ename:VK_TIMEOUT (public issue
    170).
  * Fix typo in slink:VkLayerProperties::pname:apiVersion field (public
    issue 172).

Internal Issues:

  * Fix a few minor internally-detected typos.
  * Minor formatting tweaks to pseudocode in the <<resources,Resource
    Creation>> chapter (internal issue 179).
  * Fix typo in the definition of point sampling for
    elink:VkCullModeFlagBits (internal issue 268).

--- Quote ---* Bump API patch number and header version number to 12 for this
    update.

Github Issues:

  * Change valid usage statements intended to be "sub-points" to
    be actual sub-points (public issue 66).
  * Replace double negation in description of
    slink:VkRenderPassBeginInfo::pname:pClearValues (based on public
    merge 142).
  * Cleanup minor typos in spec, ref pages and XML, including those
    proposed in public pull requests 144, 150, 151, 167, 168, 181, and
    186.
  * Use *strict subset* in describing the partial order of memory
    property types for slink:VkMemoryType, and update the style guide
    accordingly (public issue 190).
  * Fix various "a image" -> "an image" typos (public issue 191).
  * Note in the <<fundamentals-validusage,Valid Usage>> and
    <<extensions-interactions,Extension Interactions>> sections that
    structures defined by extensions which may be passed in structure
    chains using the ptext:pNext member must: include initial
    ptext:sType and ptext:pNext members (public issue 192).

Internal Issues:

  * Remove duplicate language from the description of the pname:fence
    parameter to flink:vkQueueSubmit and improve validity language
    (internal issue 91).
  * Added documentation for "optional" attribute to XML readme.tex/pdf
    (internal issue 149).
  * Clarify the host-side data validity rules and behavior of
    flink:vkFlushMappedMemoryRanges and
    flink:vkInvalidateMappedMemoryRanges (internal issue 266).

Other Commits:

  * Added clarification to flink:vkCmdFillBuffer regarding the use of
    ename:VK_WHOLE_SIZE.
  * Fixed and documented implementation of "validextensionstructs"
    attribute. in XML processing scripts and readme.tex/pdf.
  * Add missing validity statements to flink:vkResetEvent and
    flink:vkCmdResetEvent.
  * Fix validity for the
    ename:VK_FORMAT_FEATURE_SAMPLED_IMAGE_FILTER_LINEAR_BIT flag.
    Correct all the draw/dispatch commands to mention optimally tiled
    images as well as linear tiled images, and say image VIEWS instead
    of images. Add validity statement to flink:vkCmdBlitImage
  * Replace the {apiname} macro with hardcoded "Vulkan", now that we've
    committed to that name.
  * Add the VK_AMD_rasterization_order extension to vk.xml.

* Bump API patch number and header version number to 25 for this update.
  * Structurally change the specification so that multiple extensions are
    included in the +1.0+ git branch, and specifications will include or not
    include those extensions at build time based on options passed to the
    Makefile. See +doc/specs/vulkan/README.html+ and the ``Layers and
    Extensions'' section of the ``Vulkan Documentation and Extensions''
    document for more information on this change.
  * Register and publish new extensions in the single-branch form:
  ** +VK_NV_external_memory_capabilities+
  ** +VK_NV_external_memory+
  ** +VK_NV_external_memory_win32+
  ** +VK_NV_win32_keyed_mutex+

Github Issues:

  * Clarify description of GetInstanceProcAddr and GetDeviceProcAddr (public
    issue 212).
  * Add SPIR-V <<textures-operation-validation, instruction validation>> for
    single-sampled images (public issue 316).
  * Fix spelling of ``tesselation'' in a few places and note it as an
    exception to the American spelling rules convention (public issue
    327).
  * Fix Makefile to create output directory for ``styleguide''
    target (public issue 329).
  * Fix numerous minor issues with incorrectly tags on enumerant names and
    table titles (public issue 330).
  * Generate specversion.txt date in UTC time and RFC 2822 format
    (public issue 335).
  * Convert link to the SPIR-V Specification for
    flink:VkShaderModuleCreateInfo into an internal link to the normative
    reference (public issue 336).
  * Add ename:VK_ERROR_OUT_OF_MEMORY error code to
    flink:vkCreateDebugReportCallbackEXT (public issue 337).

Internal Issues:

  * Update style guide regarding use of code:NULL and dname:VK_NULL_HANDLE
    (internal issue 393).
  * Change the definition of latexmath:[$q$] in the
    <<textures-image-level-selection,texture image level selection>> section
    to be the index of the maximum defined level for the view, not the
    number of levels in the view (internal issue 406).
  * Allow developers to override dname:VK_DEFINE_NON_DISPATCHABLE_HANDLE
    with their own binary-compatible definition (internal issue 439).
  * Fix +vk_platform.h+ conditional logic causing compile failure with some
    Android compilers (internal issue 441).
  * Implement the single-branch model as described above (internal issue
    461).

--- Quote --- Change log for October 25, 2016 Vulkan 1.0.32 spec update:

  * Bump API patch number and header version number to 32 for this update.

Github Issues:

  * Add automatic visibility operations to the presentation engineE when
    doing a queue present in flink:vkAcquireNextImageKHR. Removed all
    references to MEMORY_READ that referenced WSI - they no longer make
    sense (some aspects of public issues 128, 131, 132, 261, and 298).
  * Document valid non-boolean +externsync+ attribute values for <param>
    tags in +vk.xml+ (public issue 265).
  * Add valid usage to slink:VkImageCreateInfo requiring that
    pname:arrayLayers be 1 for images of type ename:VK_IMAGE_TYPE_3D
    (public issue 319).
  * Add missing captions to figures in the <<textures,Image Operations>>
    chapter (public issue 334).
  * Clarify WSI interaction with exclusive sharing mode (public issue
    344).
  * Added explicit language clarifying the allowed queue usage of
    resources created with ename:VK_SHARING_MODE_CONCURRENT (public
    issue 386).
  * Require that the
    slink:VkDescriptorSetLayoutCreateInfo::pname:binding members of the
    pname:pBindings array passed to
    flink:vkDescriptorSetLayoutCreateInfo all be distinct (public issue
    391).

Internal Issues:

  * Remove empty validity blocks from +vk.xml+ and suppressed broken
    validity statements and added missing statements to explicit
    validity. Doesn't affect output, other than some statements
    appearing in another block now (internal issue 513).

  * Allow vkUpdateDescriptorSets overflow to skip empty bindings. Clarify
    that unused bindings have a descriptorCount of zero. Improve some valid
    usage for vkUpdateDescriptorSets (public issue 256).
  * Require that slink:VkImageSubresourceRange always define a non-empty
    range of the resource (public issue 303).
  * Added valid usage for slink:VkPresentInfoKHR on the layout of presented
    images (public issue 397).

Internal Issues:

  * Add dependency in src/spec/Makefile so specversion.txt is regenerated
    when needed (internal issue 462).
  * Shorten the table of contents in the single-page ref page HTML output.
    Still working on the PDF (internal issue 536).
