    Does this mean that the 16b is now approved / working with HoloLens? I tried it on May 4th and I was not able to build / deploy apps on the device (I forget the error, I immediately reverted to 14b)

    Keep in mind there are two beta trains with Unity. The general 5.4 beta and the 5.4HTP beta. If you're not on the page linked in the announcement, you're likely using the general 5.4 beta which doesn't have HoloLens support which will definitely give you errors. We'll post here on the forums when there are updated builds with new features from Unity to pick up.

  • Caution: This version is causing performance (e.g. framerate) issues for me, with the same project that ran at a smooth 60fps with Beta 14.

    @Patrick has asked EVERYONE to update the HoloLens tutorial in an answer
    I did this after Unity support, had problems with my beta Report, and was surprised to find that this new updated HoloLens tutorial 230 Spatial Mapping solved many problems. IMHO we should wait for build 18 or stay at b14

    There are some changes to the SurfaceObserver in the b18 build which you can test today. The builds can be installed side-by-side as well
