Great update but a suggestion to the boundary system is to add something like steamVR advanced mode where you place 4 dots out to makeC a square instead of the current one where you have to "paint" all the way around, some users myself included have very shaky hands so the lines arent being drawn perfectly to comply the space and it looks a bit quirky considering we like to keep boundaries always on. 

Thanks for the update C.T. and the browser is working well so far!

Can you clarify what's going on with the Browser? It appears to be the same Firefox build (81 ish) that we've had for a while. When Wolvic is ready for Vive, what's going to happen, exactly:

  • Wolvic and Vive Browser coexist
  • Vive Browser re-bases onto the Wolvic code but remains a separate thing
  • Wolvic is the only browser, and Vive Browser disappears
  • Something else?

Could you please comment on the browser Issue? I was trying to run Mozilla Hubs in the Vive Browser, but the browser just crashes. Can somebody confirm this behaviour. I was planning to use Mozilla Hubs for teachin in VR using a number of Focus 3 headsets, but in its present state the browser isnt usable. Firefox Reality was at least opening the Mozilla Hubs room in VR mode, but controller mapping was not working properly. I was hoping for a long time for Wolvic or another working browser solution for Focus 3 headset.

Hello, could you tell if there is any MTP related change in this version?

Our headsets cannot be shown in Windows file manager after update firmware. The Focus 3 icon just pops up for only a few seconds then disappears (while adb still works).

Thank you
