Newsbrief: Microsoft has released the latest version of Kinect Runtime for Windows and SDK, featuring record and playback functionality and a face-tracking SDK that provides a real-time 3D mesh of facial features. Version 1.5 also includes a set of Human Interface Guidelines that aid developers in the creation of Natural User Interfaces, and Seated Skeletal Tracking support, allowing Kinect to track a 10-joint skeleton, ignoring the leg and hip joints.
