After the excellent results of version 1.12, Oculus continues to fine-tune its software with the release of a new version with more improvements in tracking among others.
As always, this update will reach all users automatically and in stages, so do not despair if you see that you are still on 1.12, because it is a matter of hours. The most outstanding novelty of this update, in addition to the aforementioned improvement in HMD tracking that should now be even smoother, is that the option to participate in the Oculus beta program has been added, so that we can have early access to future versions to help detect problems. In addition, Oculus has improved the initial experiences for Rift and Touch when we first installed the software. The Touch Basics application, which appears as soon as you configure the device, has an option that allows us to skip it completely, in case we already know it by heart. And on the other hand, the First Contact demo fixes some small bugs and adds some surprises… that we are not going to reveal here.
At the moment there is no news about the elimination of the “experimental” label in 360º tracking, something planned for next month, but given the good results that we have been able to verify with version 1.12 of the software, we do not believe that there will be technical impediments for this to happen.
