Update: I have now learned you can get this Software update after joining the beta. It was not clear that this software update was under beta.

It's actually not, this is a public release announcment. 
You should be able to exit out beta anytime to receive this version update now.

Wait, there is definitely a bug with the usb charging now, I don't think it's related to compatibility mode. 

It used to be that I could turn on the focus 3, put it off to one side with the controllers connected via the y charging cable, and then walk away, the focus 3 would keep charging even when it went into 'sleep mode' (no display or sound, just the white indicator light on the front slowly going on and off)

I just looked at it and now when it goes into sleep mode, the controllers stop getting charged.

I have followed the open xr beta for getting my vive focus 3 running with open xr. I have downloaded the sample project from the github repository. It opens fine. I check the package manager and project settings according to the setup tutorial. When I enter play mode, I have a blank scene with the white ground plane and off white sky. How do I get the hand controllers and interaction into the scene?

After updating my vive focus 3 sets to 5.0.999.624, they no longer work to charge the handsets while in sleep mode, using the y cable. I have to leave the headset on and plugged in, then it will charge, but only until it sleeps.
