Just updated now, then spent a few minutes playing in home with the Hallowe'en goodies...  don't know about performance as I've not noticed any issue previously, but nice anyway, thanks!

does this mean I can embed a TV screen into my lifesized model of Tinky-Winky??!?
Though you are more than slightly incoherent, I agree with you Madam,
a plum is a terrible thing to do to a nostril.

I'm not usually a Beta kinda guy but I thought I'd give 1.32 a try.  So far good.  From my taskbar manager my GPU  usage seems about 10% lower in the core 2 home (25% vs 35%).  CPU is about the same (30%).  I cannot say that the fonts make much diff but I was already using high graphics setting anyway (left controller menu button/preferences/graphics/autoscaling= off, quality setting=high) and this, together with the antialising = on in settings/graphics seems to give me a very nice clear display within Core 2 home.  It also seems to make everything displayed on the Oculus Desktop a bit clearer/sharper. No need to try to apply OTT supersampling for core 2 home imho.

Core 2 rendering seems a bit faster, esp. going back/forth form the Oculus Store.  Seems to continue to work fine with SteamVR games for me.  Starting up Assetto Corsa from the Oculus Desktop continues to work great for me.

My only minor complaint/bug right now is that when I select Oculus Desktop from the Dash belt it initially pops up with a large yellow oval with a ! in the middle.   I displays the Desktop fine if I just use my touch controller or mouse and click on it or hover it in/out.  No big deal, just a little annoying.

Performance wise I don't see much difference but I was already getting solid performance with 1.31.  I seem to be seeing a slight improvement in my X-Plane 11 framerates but nothing very significant (+2-3 fps).

Now, I just want to know where the heck is ASW 2.0???, lol!

Mine did that too the first time.  I just clicked install when this popped up and it seemed to finish the installation of item 11, then finished installing, and then restarted the Oculus desktop app.  Sometimes ya just gotta try-try again, push lots of buttons, and hold your tongue in the right spot, lol!
