    It would be nice if there was an official sticky thread to keep track of sample pack updates. Because I have tended to only find out about these via twitter, rather than this forum.

    So I've started this one for now, both to request an official one, and to mention recent changes in the meantime.

    • 2019.3 Update: (7.2.0 rev1 2020-02-12)
      • Updated HD Render Pipeline / Visual Effect Graph to 7.2.0

      • Rebuilt all Visual Effects
        • Upgraded all HDRP materials to 7.2.0
        • Fixed Ambient Lighting in GrassWind
        • Fixed SSS Profile for Chomper Character in EllenHologram
        • Fixed UI Labels in Voxelized Terrain that disappeared in 1440p
        • Fixed Bonfire Fire Shader : was using a texture that was removed from HD Render Pipeline Package
        • Removed unused Custom Render Texture + Shaders in SpaceshipHoloTable

      • New Samples

        • Ellen Hologram : Holographic reprojection of moving characters from 3D Game Kit
      • General Improvements
        • Other Samples were updated and polished to match new features:
          • Added Motion Vectors / Motion blur in Butterflies, Portal, SpaceshipHoloTable, UnityLogo, Volumetric, VoxelizedTerrain
          • Reduced texture size of the SpaceshipHoloTable environment
          • Rebuilt all assets
          • Removed old ProceduralSky from scenes
          • Embedded Visual Effect Graph Sample Additions from package 7.1.6
        • Samples Navigation Improvements

    @elbows You can just watch that project on Github and get notified of either commits or just releases.

    Sure, but not everyone is going to do that, so I would like to bring such updated to the attention of forums. If its good enough for twitter (where the people involved have been announcing these updates) then its good enough for here.
