Oculus are rolling out their latest update to the Oculus Rift runtime software. The big change in the 1.14. release is better support for room-scale with a third Rift sensor.

This month we’ve continued to improve support for 3-sensor configurations, including a new guided setup process for three sensors. The Oculus app will also now automatically prompt you to update your setup if you plug in a third sensor.

Said Nate Mitchel in a blog post.

1.14 includes support for touch in games that are gamepad only.
The buttons and triggers will map to Touch controller buttons and gestures automatically. However, this does not mean the games will support native touch support.
