    New v1.1 release of dp.kinect2 for your Kinect v2 (XBox One) is ready for download from http://hidale.com/shop/dp-kinect2/
    This new update has several improvements; a more complete list is at https://github.com/diablodale/dp.kinect2/wiki/v1.1-What's-New%3F
    • Alignment of all data at HD resolution -or- to the depthmap resolution
    • jit.anim.node can be connected to dp.kinect2; use it to move the Kinect in a VR world, compensate for your Kinect's location, or to coordinate and combine multiple Kinect sensors
    • Filtering any combination of data by the people that are visible
    • More color pixel formats, better color accuracy
    • More face tracking data and in easier to use matrix format
    • Improved frame rates, less jitter, better CPU usage for modern CPUs
    • Easy install with a Max package, help file, examples, tutorials, and updated docs
    • Better support for collections, packages, and executables
    https://github.com/diablodale/dp.kinect2/wiki has the setup guide, tutorials, and full reference documentation
    The v1.1 release continues to have the features and is compatible with the previous v1.0 of dp.kinect2 . For example:
    • depth, color images, skeletal joints, face tracking, sound tracking, speech recognition, point clouds, accelerometer, ...
    • Compatibility with your dp.kinect patches. You may only have to add a "2" to the object name
    • Tested against Max 7 and Max 6 for both 32 and 64-bit Windows platforms
    • Based on official Microsoft Kinect v2 drivers for reliability and support
    Happy patching!

      Hi Dale, first of all, thanks for your great job, I really appreciate dp.kinect2. I've tried it with a trial registration, though I've actually purchased it (I received my registration name and key by email). When I try to register, after giving my registration name, I think I'm supposed to choose the key file. I actually don't have it, I tried to create one with the key in but it didn't work. Could you please help me with that? Thanks

      Please visit the setup guide at https://github.com/diablodale/dp.kinect2/wiki#register-dpkinect2 There you can follow the pictures to register dp.kinect2. Above you write "I received my registration name and key by email". Yes, you will receive your registration name by email. You will also receive a download link by email to download your key. It is that key that you use when registering.
