    There is this false narrative floating around in the dev community on how upstreaming breaks drivers and OEM code.

    Vulkan 1.0.59 is now available this weekend as the latest minor update to this high-performance graphics API. As usual, the bulk of this Vulkan 1.0.x point release is made up of document clarification/fixes to the text.
