Dash
  • We have added a new search feature within the Dash Store tab. This will allow you to more quickly find the games and apps you’re looking for!

Home
  • When you drop into Home for the first time, you’ll now see a new brief overview of the features and potential of Oculus Home.
  • We added a new toggle for automatically launching Home. Switching this setting off will stop Home from auto-launching in scenarios like jumping into VR and exiting out of apps. You can find this option within the Settings > General menu inside Oculus desktop app.
  • We have added a new agreement to the UGC upload process. Before a new UGC item can be uploaded for use, you are required to attest that you own this content and that it does not violate any trademarks.

Wow, 1.42 ptc seems fantastic so far.  Fixed the issue I was having with pressing dash buttons with final 1.41.  Plus the bonus of finally being able to go homeless!  You just need to go to the Oculus App/settings/general  and the setting switch for this is on the bottom of that pane.  Seems to halve my cpu/gpu % usages compared to even a pretty bare Oculus Home.  Probably not a lot of difference once you are actually running a game though.  Nice one Oculus, thanks.

Being homeless never felt so good.

Dear Oculus developers did you fxed the two major bugs affecting our gameplay sessions?

I mean this one: https://forums.oculusvr.com/community/discussion/77094/rift-s-touch-controller-positional-tracking-t...

And this one: https://www.reddit.com/r/oculus/comments/czvjt4/your_rift_s_grips_are_laggy_due_to_a_defect

I play in the competitive scene, ESL vr tournaments and basically I cannot play good because of those bugs, what can I do? Please help I’m desperate those problems are too big for competitive scene.
The dudes from the VRML community often reaches me because they know I have Oculus S asking me if Oculus S is it a good VR device for competitive, because their teammates want to buy and are seeking for suggestions, and I have to say: be aware there are those huge bugs, wait until oculus devs fix it. But the device has been released 6 months ago and I cannot see a solution yet, please help, it’s a hell playing like this

I notice now in 1.42 when you close Oculus on desktop it does not close, but minimizes to tray.
Have to right click the tray icon and choose to close it.
