DirectX 11.1 documentation online

With the public release of the Windows 8 Developer Preview the documentation for the upcoming DirectX 11.1 API
has made it online as well. It's preliminary and subject to change of course, but likely the changes won't be too dramatic. The list of new features and additions is pretty long for a mere ".1" update.

After reading it twice it gives me the impression, that all current DX11 hardware could already be 11.1 capable.

Yeah, I suppose. A new driver would be required though. I hope they backport the new WDDM 1.2 driver model to Vista/Win7 so DX11.1 doesn't become a Win8 exclusive, because that would pretty much ensure nobody would use it.
