This document provides an overview of new features, improvements, and fixes included in the latest version of the Oculus Utilities for Unity 5. For information on first-party changes to Unity VR support for Oculus, see the Unity Release Notes for the appropriate version. You will find a scripting reference for the included C# scripts in our Unity Reference Content.
All Unity Editor versions ship with a bundled version of the Oculus OVRPlugin that provides built-in Rift and Gear VR support.
Beginning with this release, the Utilities package will also include the latest version of OVRPlugin, allowing us to provide the latest features as quickly as possible.
When you import Utilities for Unity into a Unity project, if the OVRPlugin version included with the Utilities is later than the version built into your editor, a pop-up dialog will give you the option to update it. We always recommend using the latest available OVRPlugin version.
If you install OVRPlugin from the Utilities package and later wish to roll back to the version included with the Editor for any reason, you may easily do so by selecting Tools > Oculus > Disable OVR Utilities Plugin.
For more information, please see “OVRPlugin” in Oculus Utilities for Unity.
