Oculus Rift Beta SDK 0.4.4. Tested

Oculus Rift Beta SDK 0.4.4. Tested
Oculus have released another update to their SDK to bring the version up to 0.4.4 (View 0.4.4. change list)
Question is? Should you install? Does it make games/demos better, worse or no noticeable difference?
I will test my favorites below:

What can we conclude? The 0.4.4. update does not make anything worse (which is good). For some people Direct Mode may work a little better. Most people however do not have very much luck with Primary Mode and stick with Extended.
All the guides I post deal with extended mode.

Let me know in the comments if you experience any problems.
