We are very happy to tag version 0.1 of the Monado OpenXR runtime for Linux!
Ever since announcing the project at GDC 2019, we have been working on improving the full open source XR stack to a usable state. Do keep in mind, this is a first tag, not a final release so it will contain some tinkering and is not feature complete! To echo the common phrase 'Be warned, here be dragons!'.
Feel free to play around with Monado, and hit us up on our Discord to get help, report bugs or ask about contributing!
Some good things that have happened recently in the land of Monado, here they are:

Of course there are a lot of other things going on, including researching the libsurvive driver and looking into further supporting lighthouse tracking in Monado, continued work on the PSVR and PS Move positional tracking, Wayland support in the compositor, and more to come!
We currently have internships available for the XR team, If you are interested in working on things like Open Source SLAM research or monoscopic "fish tank" setups, feel free to contact us.
