This release requires macOS 10.11 or later.
It looks like the hang on boot that some users were experiencing was caused by the Xbox One controller Bluetooth support hooks that had been added to the driver. In order to resolve those issues, all Bluetooth support has been removed from the driver. Simply put, if you are using the controller via Bluetooth, the driver won't do anything for you. Please do not install older versions of the driver in order to get the force feedback over Bluetooth support and then post an issue about your computer hanging on boot.
In addition, a variety of new devices have been added and some minor touch ups were made to Xbox One racing wheel support. Currently, we still do not support the Xbox Adaptive controller, but we are actively exploring support for it.
