Stability AI has launched SDXL 0.9, the most advanced development in the Stable Diffusion text-to-image suite of models. Following the successful release of Stable Diffusion XL beta in April, SDXL 0.9 produces massively improved image and composition detail over its predecessor. The model can be accessed via ClipDrop today with API coming shortly.
