Khronos Has Released OpenXR 0.90 Provisional Specification: Help Us Build the OpenXR Ecosystem!

OpenXR is a unifying, royalty-free, open standard that provides high-performance access to augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR)—collectively known as XR—platforms and devices.

The specification is free for anyone to download. Please give us feedback on the specification and prototype implementations on the Khronos OpenXR Forums, Slack Channel, or Issue Tracker. If you are developing OpenXR-related resources – let us know!

Upon the launch of OpenXR 1.0, the OpenXR Adopters Program will enable any XR Platform vendor to become OpenXR Conformant. If you want to participate directly in the development of the OpenXR standard, join Khronos and become a member of the OpenXR Working Group, please visit our Membership page.
