what about the chromatic aberration issues caused with v37? this is still very present on both my Quest 1 and 2, the supposed fix that had rolled out never came for me and now I'm still stuck with the issue on v38.

Cool! But the thing I need the most is to have the local app library only show currently installed apps. As it is now by default after every reset it lists all apps you have and the ones you have tried out and uninstalled.
I can see on different forum posts, that its and has been an annoying issue since launch. How come it is not addressed?

Thank you for the release notes.

Can we also get notes for the v38-PC changes ?  I see there's been a few changes such as 'Mobile ASW' added to the Oculus Debug tool (under Oculus Link settings).  By default, the previously used PC-ASW is now set to disabled. 

 

Thanks !

In what I imagine is an a result of the tracking updates, I have noticed new behavior from my Quest 2. I use my Quest with Virtual Desktop to do VR on my PC through steam with full body tracking. In the past I have been able to take off my headset to go do something for even just a few minutes, and when I come back, the headset would have stayed awake and I would have been able to put it back on and resume play as normal. Now when I put the headset back on, it appears to have gone to sleep and on wake my playspace calibration is completely offset and I have to recalibrate (I use OpenVRSpaceCalibrator). I already have the setting for auto power off at the max time limit of 4 hours, and I couldn't find any new settings to change. I was also using a cable to keep the headset charged with a power adapter plugged into the wall so it shouldn't have been a power issue at the time.

Hey, could we have the possibility to have different Guardian Configuration for different spaces?

We need more multiuser features and also a laying down play mode there are many bed ridden kids and senior citizens with headsets in hospitals that could use this mode.

Yes please release some information about the Mobile ASW feature and additions on the PC PTC App
