Xp 1.20

Introducing 1.20

I am excited to announce XP 1.20, the most substantial update in the past year.

There are plenty of exciting changes happening behind the scenes, and I will share more details as soon as I have a release date locked in, which hopefully shouldn’t be too long now.

XP 1.20 will provide support for M2.

This update introduces several exciting new features, with one notable improvement being the enhanced clarity in the View menu. Now, users can switch between Scene and Listener modes from the standalone, a subtle yet significant enhancement.

Listener mode offers a natural perspective for crafting immersive VR or XR audio experiences, faithfully replicating the first-person viewpoint. Additionally, it seamlessly integrates with headtracking devices, delivering a fully immersive 6-degree-of-freedom (6DoF) experience.

XP 1.20 is released tomorrow.
