Dash

  • From the Dash Settings panel, you can now set your Passthrough+ session length to “unlimited,” which will allow you to see your real-world environment while using Dash.
  • Guardian setup will now attempt to automatically detect the floor height for you. You can still manually adjust the height if needed.
  • When using the virtual desktop feature in Dash, the virtual keyboard will now automatically open when you select a text field.

Oculus Home

  • Your Home UI now includes a history of the Homes you’ve visited in the Places UI section. Homes you’ve visited in the last 30 days can be visited again with a quick button press. You can clear out your history or opt out entirely in the Settings UI.
  • Never miss a Home reward pack again! Updated notifications now let you know when you have a reward ready to open. Also, notifications in Home have been redesigned to make things easier to read and understand.
  • Now you can use Home gateways to load directly into your favorite app. In addition to setting up destination gateways to your own home and your friends' homes, you can now set up an app as a destination and use it as a simple and quick way to get into your favorite experiences.
  • Home now features a camera, accessible straight from the Home Menu. Look on the bottom for the camera icon, and open the camera to capture your favorite moments in your Homes or Homes you're visiting. Take selfies, or screenshots, and find these images in your Documents/OculusHome/Camera folder.

Touch Controllers

We’ve made performance improvements to better track your Touch controller movements in VR. These updates, which are also applicable for Oculus Quest, include:
  • Improved tracking when controllers are close to the headset, and at angles turned away from the headset.
  • Improved tracking in difficult poses such as under-hand throwing motion.
  • Reduced re-acquisition time when controller tracking is lost.
  • You can now use both of your Touch controllers at the same time when interacting with different elements like the keyboard, Oculus Store, and Library.

Fixes

  • Fixed an issue where Dash could crash if you had non-ASCII characters in your username.

As always, if you encounter any issues with this software release, please be sure to report them using the Help Center > Provide Feedback option within the Oculus desktop software. If you have any feature requests or suggestions to make the Oculus software even better, please head over to our UserVoice page to share your feedback. Thanks for your continued help!

So any word on whether this fixed the lag on the grips?


I also want to know if the non beta release of 1.39 will fix the grip button lag most of us are encountering. Had any one who has recieved it confirm ? 


It's hard to tell because the problem was intermittent for me. I just played an hour of blade and sorcery with no issues, I was able to throw daggers etc with no problems. So i'm starting to get hopeful.

I have had the issue intermittently depending on which update.  I had the latest 1.39 update (beta) not sure if it is the same as the release version and had all sorts or grip release issues again.  Just opted out of beta and 1.38 installed itself.  Less than 1 hr after experiencing grip release issues in Eleven table tennis and Stern pinball.  No issues with 1.38.
Not sure wha will happen when I get the official 1.39 but for now no grip issues.

Yea... Personally I believe that Windows is heading to very warm place. Before windows 10 was introduced, we got main release, service pack1 and usually service pack2. Always after SP2 the main release started to be rather reliable, well known by the users and relatively bug free. People started to like it too much and Microsoft had problems getting people to move on to next main release. Windows 10 was their solution to the problem, but now we are stuck in a train which gains new bugs, malware and other issues release after release. I haven't really figured out what will happen when backwards compatibility of current hardware or software reaches point, when it is no longer compatible with newest update of windows 10. Before it was simple - now it is just bulljunk...

I've said it before, but here goes again... Personally I will move to alternative choice as soon gaming on it becomes less painful than dealing issues with windows. Unfortunately today is not that day yet. Thankfully at least steam is on right track.

Has the new version been fixed by the Steam VR headset identification issue?

Totally right. Windows is garbage. However since it is the mainstay for gaming we are stuck with it.
