LunarG releases new Vulkan SDK for 1.1.101.0 header
LunarG just released new SDKs for Vulkan 1.1.101.0 that include the most recent extensions. Much of the documentation for this SDK can be found in the Getting Started Guide, located in the Documentation directory of the SDK and on the Vulkan SDK Download site.

Overview of new SDK features
        It’s now easier than ever to use the Vulkan Configurator in an existing development environment. The updated tool can be used to enable/disable specific layers without affecting unspecified layers, creating a more intuitive user experience.
        Since the release of SDK 1.1.97.0, the following new extensions have been added to the Vulkan spec and may be supported by a Vulkan device. To query extensions available to a given physical device, call vkEnumerateDeviceExtensionProperties() or contact the hardware vendor.
            VK_EXT_filter_cubic
            VK_NV_dedicated_allocation_image_aliasing
            VK_NV_cooperative_matrix
            VK_EXT_depth_clip_enable
        Improved validation coverage and bug fixes

Please note that RenderDoc is no longer included in the Vulkan SDK.

LunarG donates the Vulkan SDK to Khronos

LunarG donates the Vulkan SDK to Khronos to promote a unified Vulkan ecosystem and enable wider collaboration on SDK development.

LunarG Collaboration with Khronos

Today, LunarG strengthens its collaboration with Khronos by opening its desktop SDK build and packaging scripts to the Vulkan Working Group.  This step enables all working group members to collaborate in supporting and evolving a unified Vulkan SDK that can serve the needs of the industry, while avoiding fragmentation in the Vulkan ecosystem.

LunarG plays a central role in developing and supporting the desktop Vulkan SDK, and will continue to host and maintain the Vulkan SDK download site, now with the additional support and resources of Vulkan Working Group members.

As the first step in this transition, the look and feel of the Vulkan SDK download site (formerly called LunarXchange) is now consistent with other Khronos Vulkan online resources, emphasizing the unified support and development of the desktop SDK by LunarG and the Vulkan Working Group.
