These release notes are specific to the OpenVR component of Meta 2 SDK.

See here for general release notes, including many improvements which also apply to the OpenVR SDK.

Improvements and New Features

  • Added support for SLAM relocalization. By default, it will be enabled. To control this relocalization setting:

    1. Open the default.vrsettings file for the Meta driver. It is located in your Steam installation directory under steamapps\common\SteamVR\drivers\meta\resources\settings\default.vrsettings.
    2. Locate the field loadLastMap.
    3. To enable relocalization, set this value to true. To disable relocalization, set it to false.
    4. Ensure that the file remains valid JSON, otherwise SteamVR will not function with the Meta 2.

Known Bugs

  • The SteamVR chaperone may not be visible in some applications.
  • To view WebVR content with Mozilla Firefox on laptops with certain legacy graphics architectures, additional steps are required. Please see here for details.
