  • Vulkan 1.1.71 Released As The First Update To Vulkan 1.1
    The first point release to the Vulkan 1.1 release from earlier this month is now available.

This first point release to Vulkan 1.1 is officially version 1.1.71. This is because when Vulkan 1.1 was created, Khronos decided not to reset the patch number... Vulkan 1.1 was technically 1.1.70 and not 1.1.0. So now with this first update it's bumped to Vulkan 1.1.71.
