With the beta release of 2.1.2, I’d like to highlight some of the major changes that it brings to the consumer experience. Here’s what you’ll find with the latest build:
Updated out-of-the-box experience. New users are no longer required to create an account before using bundled apps.
Airspace Home is now App Home. Along with the Leap Motion App Store, these simpler names will make it easier for new users to get started. When V2 goes to production, the Airspace Store’s branding will be updated accordingly.
New orientation. Redubbed "Playground," the V2 orientation app lets users experience more dynamic interactions with onscreen hands. This is still being improved and polished, but we wanted to share an in-progress version for feedback.
Backwards compatibility. Version 2.1.2 introduces support for apps built with V1 tracking. While we’re in beta, try out your favorite V1 apps and let us know if you find any issues!
HP support for V2. For the first time, the HP ENVY 17 Leap Motion SE and Leap Motion Keyboard work with V2 beta tracking.
These are all big steps towards the final consumer build, and we really appreciate your feedback as we sprint towards V2 consumer launch. What do you think of Playground? Find any bugs with backwards compatibility?
Please let us know your thoughts about these consumer-oriented updates in this thread. For bug reports, other updates, and known issues related to 2.1.2 (including the latest on VR), check out the release notes.
