Oculus Developer Hub 1.8 includes a new home page with developer updates from Oculus. It also has a new App Distribution page, allowing developers to publish in-development apps for limited distribution for testing purposes. The distribution system includes four release channels: Alpha, Beta, and RC for internal testing and Production for submission to Oculus for store approval.

The new Oculus Developer Hub makes it easy for developers to open run the OVR Metrics Tool, which helps developers optimize the performance of their Quest apps. The latest version allows you to record and save the metrics graphs for analyzing performance issues.

Developers working on WebXR projects will be happy to learn that Oculus added a new feature to the Oculus Developer Hub that allows you to launch a web address on a Quest headset from the desktop app. No more typing long URLs with the Touch controllers.

Check out the Oculus Developer Blog for a complete list of all the updates and changes.
