Version 0.83 beta 3 has been released!
« on: February 05, 2003, 11:59:16 pm »
Another beta version...i think a can get rid of the beta-status in the next version... :D
Anyway, this version adds support for sphere-polygon collision detection. This will suit some situations more than the ray-polygon based one (which is still available of course).
In addition, i reworked the OpenGL renderer a little bit to minimize state changes. This is always a good idea, even if the improvement isn't that large at the moment (read: none at all  :lol:  )

Good, congratulations and thanks for your job.
The engine is compatible with Linux?

Yes. The software renderer will (should!) run on anything that supports Java1.1 (it does run on Apple, so it will run everywhere... :D )
OpenGL uses LWJGL which has been ported to Linux. I assume that it will work, but i haven't tested this (no Linux at the moment, just a plain FreeBSD webserver with no X installed). If it doesn't, blame LWJGL... :lol:
