github aframevr/aframe v0.6.0

0.6.0 (June 29, 2017)

Link traversal for navigating from page to page while staying in VR. Support
for VR controllers across the board with the addition of Daydream and GearVR
controller components as well as laser interactions. Large performance
improvements around .getAttribute and .setAttribute.
