We have decided to phase out the Mixed Reality Forums over the next few months in favor of other ways to connect with us.
The first way we want to connect with you is our mixed reality developer program, which you can sign up for at https://aka.ms/IWantMR.
The plan between now and the beginning of May is to clean up old, unanswered questions that are no longer relevant. The forums will remain open and usable.
On May 1st we will be locking the forums to new posts and replies. They will remain available for another three months for the purposes of searching them, and then they will be closed altogether on August 1st.
So, where does that leave our awesome community to ask questions? Well, there are a few places we want to engage with you. For technical questions, please use Stack Overflow, and tag your questions using either hololens or windows-mixed-reality. If you want to join in discussions, please do so in the HoloDevelopers Slack, which you can join by going to https://aka.ms/holodevelopers. And always feel free to hit us up on Twitter @MxdRealityDev.
Sticky request - known working version combos
We all know emergent tech is tough. The dependencies are changing rapidly (necessary for progress) but there is no "official" sticky for us to lean on to be 100% sure we are using the latest stable versions of everything. The info is spread all over and not always official - hard to know what is official in OSS, I know...
I'd love to have 1 source-of-truth sticky post moderated by the official HoloLens/MixedRealityToolkit team.
It's tough because we depend very much on Unity being stable and in lock-step with both MS Visual Studio and the MRTK. It would just be great to have 1 place we call confidently check in against occasionally to make sure all our dependencies line up.
Apologies if I've just been away from these forums for too long and have missed this, but I didn't see anything like this in a recent quick sweep of the stickies.
This is what I would love to see:
What are the highest versions we can use for Unity, Visual Studio, and the MRTK?
- please link to installers if they are not on normal download pages
Any possible alerts or notices for incoming changes.
Ideally - this page also stays up to date, as it the likely landing point for people who are just getting started: https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/mixed-reality/install_the_tools
