Known installation issue:
If you’re using the Oculus runtime, please reboot after install to ensure it picks up the new driver version.
^ That's a dev driver. I've been running it for a few days. Seems pretty smooth.
I installed it yesterday and so far so good.
Is it needed for someone who doesn't use VR?
