Stupid question for your guys. Why this lib have less and less releases ? Is it less and less well-maintained  :-\ ?

The library is still maintained, but no new major features will be added to it in the foreseeable future. Therefor, releases contain mainly bug fixes and after all these years, there aren't many bugs to fix anymore. That's the update frequency decreased.

Thanks.

I'm thinking adding some more ExtendedPrimitives as Polyhedron shapes. But regarding your license this is not possible.

You could always implement such extension of general primitive Object3D's (in a new seperate class) yourself (and share them here for others) ;)

As Aero said, it's not a problem. The stuff in the util-package is decoupled from the engine, everything that is done in there can be done with the means provided by the public interfaces.

Thanks for your answers. So far nothing very important to bring up. I'm just starting off the bench  ;D and testing the lib.
