It is finally happening. After not having a major update since August of 2016, HoloLens owners everywhere will soon get a number of new features added to their devices.

Throughout 2017, the Mixed Reality Team at Microsoft seemed focused on the immersive headsets that were coming out in time for the holiday season.
Thanks to information coming out of the HoloDevelopers Summit, an occasion that readers of our weekly newsletter may have noticed on our event calendar, we now know that not only did attendees of the Summit receive an early update, but that a similar update will likely be reaching Windows Insiders by the end of the month.
NR50 member Jesse McCulloch, the organizer of the HoloDevelopers Summit, not only confirmed rumors that were circulating, but also listed a number of new features that came in the update.
The ability for our applications to interact with the shell in some way seems really important for creating an environment that adds new levels of interactivity.
Specifically, this one has been reported as breaking the Fragments game, some apps can crash randomly, and at times, according to McCulloch, it can "start acting all weird and then lose tracking." Hopefully, by the time it goes out to the Windows Insiders, a few of these issues will be taken care of.
