AltspaceVR admin Steven announced today that he is “stepping back” away from the SDK development to focus on other things. This means that there will not be any SDK meetups for the foreseeable future at least. But it was cleared up that MRE’s will still be around and that the feature won’t be taken off the platform. Although there was a particular tone that might leave some people like myself to believe that the future of MRE’s on Altspace is in the user’s hands and what doesn’t work now probably won’t be fixed unless it’s critical such as a security flaw.

What now?

MRE’s are pretty much in the hands of the users to ‘figure this all out’ and it’s up to each other to teach or not to teach so it will be interesting to see if there are major breakthroughs in developments being part of the community to come together and maybe try to revamp the idea of an MRE SDK meetup.
