We’re happy to share a beta preview of an upcoming release of the Leap Motion Software and Airspace Home, version 1.2.
The idea behind this preview is to give you a pre-release look at some of what we’ve been working on lately in the Leap Motion control software and Airspace Home. Note: this beta update does not include advances we are making to the core tracking (but we are also working on getting v2.0 ready to share as a beta with the broader developer community).
This is a beta preview build and will not be as stable as the final 1.2 release. In particular, we do not recommend you try this if you are using Leap Motion embedded inside a HP Envy 17 Leap Motion SE laptop PC or a HP Leap Motion keyboard (we’re still fixing some bugs).
Put simply: proceed with caution. This is not a final production build.
