Hello everyone.

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.

Immersive MR dev questions

Hello MR devs/experts,

I have a few newbie questions:

  • Will the HolotoolKit be updated to support the immersive headset ? If not, what's the alternative toolkit can we use ?
  • I heard Unity 2017 beta (latest build) supports the built-in sdk for Windows Immersive MR, so we don't need the Mixed Reality Technical Preview (MRTP) anymore ? Can someone confirm ?
  • The MR academy sample projects for gaze/gesture (holograms 210, 211) are still specific for the HoloLens. Where can I find sample codes that teach you the gaze/gesture for the immersive headset ?
